$456.84

This is what the grocery bill looks like for a family of 5.

Ouch.

Per week? Or per month? If it's monthly, that's not too shabby.

Amanda said...

Wow. And just think about the bill when they're all in their teen years. Ouch!

biweekly. Oh - and no diapers or any expensive baby shit was purchased either.

Sara said...

holy moly, my family of 5 bill, even bi-weekly, is probably half that!

jenn said...

I totally feel your pain! We also have a family of 5 and all I can say is Sams Club is a MUST! We bought a freezer and fridge for the garage so when stuff is on sale we buy in bulk, well if it doesn't expire right away. That way we can make small trips to the grocery store for fresh things and it is way less expensive.

Heh, just wait til your boy isn't eating breast milk! The amount of food I go through with a little man in the house is insane!!

so just curious, what was it before Karl then? I guess I don't get what your spending more on now since Karl isn't eating solids, yet, you're breastfeeding and you said no diapers?

nancy said...

Meredith, it was the same. I was just making a joke about how much I spent.
