How much you spend on groceries per month really depends on what area of the country you live in.

Try looking at the sales flyers for your grocery stores or the ones in your area. You can find some new ingredients without all of the price.

I am curious, how much do you guys/gals typically spend on food per person per month? i am trying to save money on groceries and a lot of other things and trying to get oriented.

I also have to think of some healthy, inexpensive meals other than beans & rice. :)

I would think this would be a busy team the way the economy is. I hope we can stir some interest.

More frugal stuff:
find free entertainment. All summer there were free concerts on Thursday evenings at our community center. High School and church programs are often free or low cost.

Take a field trip in your community. Museums and historical sites may only be a few miles away. We have some within walking distance. Good exercise as well.

Now that it is cool out, walk to the grocery if all you need is a gallon of milk.

I use powdered milk and powdered buttermilk in recipes for baking or cooking.

I checked out Pam Anderson's "The Perfect Recipe for Losing Weight and Eating Great" and it has some wonderful recipes, and also cheap once you get the basic staples in your house (whole wheat flour, etc). I highly recommend it!

I homeshool my daughter so she had to make a meal as part of her homechooling. It had to be low cost and healthy. She had to try to use mostly what we had in the house.
She wanted to cook Salmon, rice and peas. For dessert she wanted to make babanas splits but that was too unhealthy and expensive. So we improvised. She made sugar-free, fat-free chocolate pudding, then sugar-free, fat-free banana pudding. She layed the puddings in a dessert dish with thawed orgainic strawberries and topped w/ light whip cream and a cherry on top.
The salmon was only $1 for each 4 oz frozen vaccum pack. We used only 3 packs for 4 people to stretch our meal out. All other food we had already in the house. It was delicious and filling, even for a large nephew and tall high metabolism dad, myself and her.
