I do not spend this much at the supermarket each week, however I am only buying for one.

I am still not used to cooking for one and usually cook for about three as it is not worth cooking a fancy meal just for one portion.

I do not mind eating the same day after day, and as I fast one day a week, I don't think I spend anywhere near $100 just at the supermarket, however do not buy fruit from there.

No way

There is two of us, and my son loves his food....so yes it can at times go over $100, maybe $130 per week.
We have cut down to 2 loafs of bread a week, and no soft drinks, butter, Ice cream and I don't drink milk......but, I use a huge amount of veg.
We spend about $150 a week for the three of us. That may or may not include one take away meal.

My budget is $400 for a month, which works out to be $100 a week for 5 of us, so yes. This includes food, cleaning products (I make my own laundry liquid and use bicarb and vinegar for everything) and also pet food.

We don't unless for a special event filled week: like around christmas for exaple. There are two of us.
I live alone so do not spend this amount at the supermarket unless re-stocking lots of once-in-a-while items such as laundry and/or kitchen products,dog food for 3 fur babies,etc!!! I buy my fresh fruit and veg at the local store as they have gorgeous produce at great prices! I do not eat masses of meat,and often get this from the local butcher.I love to support small business wherever possible.
We do. We average around $150-$170 per week buying for 2.5 (the half is for our King Charles Cavalier). He turns his nose up at tinned or processed food making it an expensive shopping trip each week with kangaroo and chicken fillets no less.

Although we buy a lot of fresh produce and seafood (I eat fish on a daily basis) we also ensure we have a fully stocked pantry for emergencies. If something we use on a regular basis is on special we will buy multiple of that product and freeze.

I find I can easily spend $10 just in fresh herbs - as much as I continue trying to grow herbs such as dill, basil and coriander, I invariably still need to include bunches of herbs on my weekly shops.

It would certainly be interesting to do a shopping list comparison !
Oh heavens yes! We spend between $170 and $250 every week. Luckily we're in a house we own outright!
Easily .. there are 3 of us and one is a very hungry teenage boy. I try to buy good quality food, organic etc, which also bumps up the cost. I think the prices have gone up recently at the supermarkets as my bill is just increasing week by week. This week-end I am off to discover the local markets and a local, recommended, butcher. I honestly thought that once our 2 daughters left home our food bill would decrease.
Oh! Aliso, really? With a teenage BOY still in the house? Delusional, somewhat! Lol!

No, I don't spend that much on groceries a week. Maybe $40 or $50 at most.
Would have no problem doing so, BUT, rein my spending in to what I actually need, which is much less than that amount.
We spent around $150 week for the 2 of us, because my husband keeps buying non food items in Aldi's, that he thinks we need, (but we don't really need them!)
