I've been away from home close to two months' date=' I added up some receipts and was like wtf no way, it was all on me not complaining though I eat the best.

 

What's your average spending on food a month?[/quote']

 

Easily $500-$600 a month. It's me, wifey, 2 boys, and every other weekend 2 girls. None of us are overweight either.

 

 

When I was single I could easily go on about $200 a month and eat pretty well.

thats a good ****ing question

 

I spend about 400 on food. How the **** do i get that to be cheaper without just eating damn dollar menu' date=' cereal and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches[/quote']

 

You don't. Buy fresh vegetables, find a local butcher if you eat meats, and cook your own non-processed foods. Most of what you pay for is packaging and processing.

Veggies are expensive as ****. So are meats. That in no way is going to help me get under 400 a month.

 

I can eat at McDonalds for under 5 dollars a meal.

lol @ thinking eating fast food everyday is cheaper.

 

You can buy enough meat and veggies to last a week on what fast food would cost you just for 3 days.

^This. Like I said find a butcher and either a grocery store that buys from a farmers market(I know Kroger and its equivalents do) or find a farmers market yourself. In fact, you live in Nevada! Find the roadside Mexicans who will sell you a months worth of their crops for $10-$20...

I promise it works. Feeding 4 people(6 some weekends) and 2 dogs would be rough if I relied on grocery stores for everything. Also, if you haven't already, become a member at a Sam's Club and buy things in bulk. It may cost more in the beginning but you will save a ton in the long haul.

 

Fresh foods are the way to go, especially if you're culinarily inclined. The food I cook for house guests is pretty epic as evidenced in their willingess to say they would pay good money to eat it if I charged them.

LOL...I have said the same thing when looking at my grocery reciepts...like WTF?!?

 

For me, wife and two kids.....we spend easily 130-150 bucks a week. And buying fruits and veggies ain't helping much either......they are F-ing expensive!! I picked up a pound of grapes thinking no biggie......found out I paid 10 BUCKS for the grapes!!! The bag I picked up turned out to be almost two pounds, lol. I am also seriously thinking about buying me a cow and killin it myself!

The National Defense Authorization Act is definitely more strictly enforced than jay walking friend. I suggest you read up on it.

 

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Defense_Authorization_Act_for_Fiscal_Year_2012

 

More importantly...

 

the Act states that Congress "affirms" this authority and makes specific provisions

 

as to the exercise of that authority. [13][14] The detention provisions of the Act have received critical attention by, among others, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, and some media sources which are concerned about the scope of the President's authority, including contentions that those whom they claim may be held indefinitely could include U.S. citizens arrested on American soil, including arrests by

 

members of the Armed Forces.

 

The bill passed the House 283 to 136.

 

 

Luckily for you, it seems that collecting rainwater is limited mostly to western states and isn't illegal on Louisiana... Yet.

You can buy a Subway $5 foot long turkey sandwich' date=' or you can buy a pound of sliced turkey for about the same, and make at least 8 sandwiches.[/quote']

 

 

ahh screw it. $5 footlongs. spend 35 bucks and tax and thats a week of pizza subs. u cant go wrong on the subway diet

 

but if your a fan of burger king, dont go for the angry whopper. Its all about the BK Heart Attack. you eat one of these and u aint gonna be hungry for week. thus all your weekly grocery shopping, all in one place!

Nope' date=' one of the stipulations classifying you as a "domestic terrorist" is having more than a 30 day stockpile of food in your house. Like I said, look it up.[/quote']

 

How do you define that, because I have a full freezer, fridge and several cupboards. Am I in Al Qaeda now?
