I've kept close track of my food spending for years and years. I think I'm slightly OCD about it, but it's interesting when I add it all up for the year, which I did this week.
I averaged $133/week for food (not wine or catfood or cleaning stuff, and not eating out.)
That's 3 adults, maybe 3.5, because Sarah eats here two or three times/week, and it includes all the groceries I bought in Florida this summer, because I bought all the food and did all the cooking for the 3 of us. (Dh and dd seem to have mostly eaten frozen pizza and scrambled eggs in my absence, but they did save all their receipts!)
About 20% of our grocery spending is for our CSA - we get about half of our produce, all of our eggs, butter and milk, and some of our meat from them. I mostly shop at Aldi and the IGA, but we've made several trips to Whole Foods and TJs over the course of the year.
We ate out about once every 10 days, mostly when we were out of town.
It seems like a lot! I do buy pretty much whatever anyone suggests. I could surely spend less, but I can't think of any pressing reason to do it...
Anybody else track their spending for the year closely?
