My girlfriend and I usually spend somewhere in the area of three-hundred per month on groceries, but you have to factor in that a lot of much of that food is organic/free range meat&eggs/health food etc, so its a bit more expensive that most people's would be. We also get what we can from the local costco and sams club so that helps a bit too.
Hmm, my roommate and I go shopping about twice a month, and spend 80-120 on groceries, so between 160-240/mo for 2 people. I spend about 15 a week at places like Applebees, Fridays, etc, so even with that factored in, it's like 150/mo for me, groceries, and eating out.
10-12 each morning for coffee/energy drink, breakfast bar of some sort, bottle of water, and a pack of smokes depending on what kinda of bar i get, or what price smokes happen to be that day ( i swear they change daily...)
X5 = 50-60
lunch is usually about 8 bucks, give or take... call it 10 on average.
X5 = 50
dinner, depends... anywhere from free (eat with mom) to 25bucks... but i'd say this averages out to bout 8 bucks a day.
X5 = 45
so thats like 150/week
X4 = 600.
and then, theres the weekends... lol
so its proabbly more like 800 all said and done.
150-200 month on groceries, lunch at work 200 a month, then going out to eat maybe like 50-100 a month (dont go out to eat all that much). Then probably like 50-75 a week on booze, I really need to start only having one bar night a week instead of 3.
For those of you who drop alot of money eating out and such.. Wait till you get married. X2 for everything. My wife and I used to eat out everyday and order pizzas and such. I'd say the total cost of food and drinks was in the neighbor hood of $1300... That had to stop after we got the new car. If you are living really cheap.. you could do it on $125 to $150 a month if you eat Ramen noodles grilled cheeses and only get 2 things off the dollar menu at a fast food place.
