People food that is not critter food. I am just curious to hear what everyone else spends. I have 5 in my own family, plus 5 to 6 extra kids during the week. We spend an average of $350 to $450 every month. This doesn't include our paper products or any of the other stuff, just food. So let me know what your family spends. 1. How many in your family? 2. How much do you spend? I would love to save some $ on food, just not sure where else I could cut back.
