I'm On A Mission

I am really interested in what other families spend on their monthly food budget (grocery bills and eating out).  I am going to get serious about a food budget while trying to maintain this organic lifestyle.  I think it is possible to eat mostly organic on a budget.  I am out to prove myself right or wrong.  So please leave a comment with your monthly budget and number of family members.  You can leave it anonymously if you would like.  But please enter your real food budget!

Thanks friends.  I'll keep you posted!


  1. Here are a few comments that I have received on Facebook about weekly/monthly budget.

    family of 5 with 2 teenagers: $250 a week
    family of 4 $800-$900 and that includes all household products.

    So I have my work cut out for me. I am going to sit down and write a rotation menu that fits a specific budget. It may take me a bit but I'll get it done!

  2. We spend an average of $150/wk on groceries for our family of five. I coupon, which helps dramatically. I wish you luck and can't wait to read about how you do! :)

  3. I usually spend 600 a month which includes all groceries, household products, costco and diapers. We are a family of 4, 2 being toddlers.

    I am a new follower, and can't wait to read more.


  4. Uggh I suck at my food budget I wish one existed. I really hope and am requesting you make your budget and how you did it a regular post, a separate section or something. We eat mostly organic but I am having a hard time where to even start on the budget, and we need one!

  5. That is my summer goal! I will keep a budget and share my menus. Please just be patient with me as I try to balance this with my 3 kiddos! I'm getting there.
