How much do you all spend per person adult or child for groceries? If it weren’t for the need to eat damn could I ever buy a shitload of toys. We just got back from our main monthly shopping and spent about 168 dollars. That’s 84 a month each and I’ll end up spending another 40 or so on things we need like produce and fruits
I shop weekly.
I’m a single dad with two teenagers and apparently the fun house to stay at since all of their friends usually hang out here.
At about $125 per week and an average month being four weeks, that’s about 500 bucks a month.
Luckily I work for a major cookie and cracker company so I always have snacks on hand otherwise it would be more.
What I really need to find is some place willing to trade Oreos for hardware!
Oh that’s what I need a constant supply of goodies. I’d go throught a gallon of sour cream monthly. Making dip for crackers.
I’ve got a ton of RTA and rdta I don’t use and Oreo sounds real good right now
We are a family of 3 and my husband is 6’9" my daughter (14yrs) together eat about half of what he eats. I spend approx 100€ a week and when he takes time off as he gets 45 vacation days a year it’s more.
Over recent years, I spend about $200-$250 a month on groceries. and it’s worth noting, the meat content has been diminishing in that order much to my chagrin. =/
Please tell those bastards at Mondelez Intl that they need to change the cookie formula back to the original!!! The cookie hasn’t been the same since they moved production of a beloved American icon (Oreo) to Mexico, and I won’t buy them anymore.
Nothing against Mexico, everything against screwing with a classic!
There’s been a lot of people upset by the move.
Sadly I’m just a blue collar working stiff and I haven’t any pull in the company.
There are still many of our products made in the US (including Oreos).
If you look at the code date on the product (eg. 22AUG17) it is followed by two letters. MM and MS are the Mexican bakeries
The lard used in the filling was taken out years ago and replaced with vegetable shortening (healthier and all of that, because we all eat cookies for our health, right? ).
Like I said, it’s the change in the recipe that bothers me most (which I know some will take issue with). I just noticed that the change in formula seemed to coincide with the timing that I started seeing MIM on the bags… (first noticed it about 8 months to a year ago, so I don’t think it was “the great lard conversion” lol)
I have products throughout the house made in all regions of the world (as most all of us do), but when someone changes intrinsic aspects of something, I get ticked. Same goes for flavoring and those who’ve reformulated perfectly awesome flavors, ruining them, by removing the D/A/AP aspects.
/sorry for the derail GPC2012!
i really havent noticed any taste difference and im a cookie slut
Fixed that for you.
It’s just me, 19 y/o son and three dogs. I spend about 250.00 a month on groceries. Fruits and produce are bought as needed as it doesn’t keep too well in the desert. There are food banks here that will help anyone who needs it, but the majority of the food is WAY beyond the expiration dates. Good to know its there, but don’t need to risk it right now.
What’s killin’ me is the damn utilities!
Well I don’t know about the cookie part ROTFLMAO
Yeah we’re not looking forward to the miserable 100’s here.
That’s about what my husband and I spend but we have adult kids over twice a month.
Hey wherever the path takes us is fine with me
I’m in the same boat as you. Single Dad with a 16yo Son and 19yo Daughter. Plus my Daughters Boyfriend is pretty much a permanent fixture at the dinner table. I spend $500-$600 a month. I live in the Los Angeles area and groceries are very expensive.
When all 5 kids were growing up, we would spend roughly $750-$950 per month. Now that they have all gone on to spawn their own broods, we might spend $200 for a month, but it depends a lot on how much is ready in the greenhouse (year round veggies) and what’s about ready for slaughter (desperately need a cow for milk and too spawn some mobile beef!)
You’re too far away from me, I can’t raid your greenhouse or milk bessy on the sly
Wish you were closer! I planted WAY too many tomatoes. Last count was 87 tomato plants, and now they’re all producing.
I planted the same type last year and only had 20 of them come up, so I played the odds this year. Too bad I wasn’t playing in Vegas!
Three years ago I planted 4 “PARKS WHOPPER” tomato plants They boasted about 100 lbs pounds per plant, So as I harvested I weighed and tallied from each plant. The plant that produced the smallest amount of tomatoes was just over 130 lbs, the plant with the most had almost 175 lbs. It’s all I ever plant now and depending on the year and the leftover supply of canned juice one or two of them. Wifey doesn’t like fresh matters but loves my sauces and juices. But yeah you’re right too bad cause I grow the biggest baddest assed blackberries in California
the matters are kinda small though
berries rock though
