I'm trying to get a better handle on our grocery and toiletries budget. I used to just buy whatever I needed but I want to get a better grip on it.
How much do you budget for how many people (please include groceries + toiletries such as paper towel/toilet paper/etc)? Do you live in LCOL or HCOL? Do you coupon?
Here is what I've got:
Groceries (+ some toiletries) $250
Sam's Club $100 (I get most toiletries from here)
.. thus, $87.50 per week (or $350/month)
No, I don't coupon since most of the toiletries I get are at Sam's, and most of the food I eat are not pre-packaged foods (mostly produce, but do buy pasta, marinara sauce, etc)
ETA: This doesn't include beauty items (skincare/makeup) since I buy those at the department store.Eta- I do prepare 6 dinners and 6 lunches per week.
