Rising food costs...keeping it budget friendly!?

HeyJ1234 | Jul 13, 2011 10:43 PM

Is it just me or the grocery bills getting more expensive!? Who knows...actually I was wondering what is a reasonable monthly budget for feeding a family of two. We limit the eating out to once a week, if at all, frequent the local farmers markets (though not as often as we would like) and make a point of only shopping at Whole Foods if we can't help it. We have a Costco/Sams membership, but live in an apartment so space/fridge space is tight. We like to eat cause we're active adults, but our cost for food just seems outrageous. Thought I'd poll the masses and see what's seems to be average and get any advice/feedback people have to help cut-costs while not sacrificing good tasting, healthy food. Thanks!!!
