    Simple as the title, how much do you usually spend on food each week? Whether that be grocery shopping, restaurants, or otherwise, what's your average budget? :yum:

    My wife and I spend about $80 at the supermarket and another $40 or so eating out. We eat a lot of meat.

    I am trying not to exceed the limit of 10 € each week, sometimes I even spend more than 20 €.

    Could it be that I am not the only one who is paying foods out of Britain? British don't pay with dollars as a current...

    Correct, I don't live in Britain. Where'd you live? How on earth do you only aim to spend 10 € a week?? :eek:

    I am living in Germany. Are you an American?

    At work I have lunchtime and the option to eat foods in a centeen for free. I just spend money for foods, if it is really needed or I am pleased to cook on weekend days.

    East or West?

    Nah, I just live in the US.

    I guess 10 euros just for weekends isn't quite as difficult to do. Pretty sweet job you must have if you get that much food for free everyday! I only have an egg-mayonnaise sandwich and a yogurt for lunch everyday but the cost still builds up.

    Neither one thing nor the other! I am a North German. I would be a West, if the GDR would still exist.

    £20-£30 a week. Me and my boyfriend go out to eat like maybe twice a month or we'll get a takeaway in but it's never too extravagant.
