How much do you spend on groceries for the weekend? I don't feel like I spend excessively while I'm shopping but $90 for 3 days' worth of food (just myself) seems high...

For good stuff, in small enough portions that you aren't wasting anything, that's about right


What do you get?


Abt 20 per trip and 1/2 trips per week. Mostly get fruits and vegetables and some easily made meats or fish. Gotta have strawberries every day of the week.


@EY1 greek yogurt, muesli, frozen berries, various veggies (this weekend it's cabbage, carrot, burdock, green beans, watercress, pea tendrils, scallions, mushrooms), fish (usually salmon or mackerel), brown/wild rice or soba, then some cheese and a $15 bottle of red wine to treat myself. Maybe it's the Whole Foods effect (there's not much else within walking distance)


HelloFresh is $60/week 🤔


Seems high to me. I used to spend about $40/week to feed my husband and myself for dinner Sunday through lunch Friday. Friday nights and all Saturday were eaten out


@D1 Didn't read OP's response until after I replied. Certainly didn't shop at Whole Foods, but it was all raw ingredients - chicken thighs or wings, pork loin / butt, salmon, fresh veggies and fruit. It was combination of buying what was on sale and what we were craving.


Haha usually I spend less than that for 2 people for a whole week. I mostly shop at Kroger though which is pretty cheap

500 a month easily. And I eat out a lot as well. WF is pretty pricy

I spend $40 a week on HelloFresh

Whole Foods is so over priced - but their strawberries are the most fresh 🍓

I got some kind of intro offer for a month 🤔

@AT1 what all were you buying! That's awesome

$200 per month just for me is plenty

Sounds right if you like to eat well (organic fruits and vegetables, prime meats and fish).
