How Much Do You Spend on Groceries Every Week?

Since our question asking what percentage of take-home pay people spend on rent received so many great responses last week, our pal Josh Fruhlinger suggested we try asking other questions. So let’s do this: On average, how much do you spend a week on groceries? You can figure out what it is for yourself, or if you’re partnered or have more than one mouth to feed, note that (so I can figure out how to chart it later). If you do one big monthly shop, you can calculate what that would be on a weekly basis. I’ll start: I spend about $55 a week on groceries.

Update: See a chart of how much you spend on groceries.
