What’s your grocery budget?

I ran the numbers and appear to be spending $300/month on groceries. I’m tired and don’t cook my lunches – those are $4 Amy’s meals. My other meals are easily another $4, with $2 for snacks and the precious pricey protein bars I’m in love with. I’m very conscious of food waste. Sometimes my veggies go bad, but everything else gets frozen for later or dumped on mom just before it turns.

For comparison, Google says my city’s cost of living index for groceries specifically is 90, which I suspect means it’s 10% cheaper than the US average of 100.

I’ve lived without a partner for a year, and am re-evaluating my finances. Thanks for providing me with other data points! I’m asking here because the grocery budgets of people who can buy bread and pasta are naturally very different.
