Groceries

A friend of mine mentioned to me recently that she was shocked that the average amount spent by a family of four on groceries was $520 dollars a month. I mentioned that works out to $130 a month, and it didn't seem like that much to me.

Anyway, since I'm bored, I pulled up Quicken and looked at the numbers. Over the last year, I've averaged just under $200/month on groceries. Add in the $250 a month I spend on "dining" and I'm pretty close to a family of four, all by myself.

Wowsers. I've always joked that I'm eating myself out of house and home, since I know I enjoy food, and tend to splurge on it, but who'd have thought?
