I typically spend $100-130 every two weeks for food just for me. I feel like I spend a lot more than I should, and I try to cut back, buy store brand foods instead of name brand, use coupons, etc. I don't ever eat out so in the long run I have been saving money compared to when I wasn't eating so healthy. Where do you do your shopping? I like to shop at Kroger/HEB, but my roommate shops at Walmart and has found it to be a lot cheaper. Definitely clip coupons if you have the time to do so, too! You can also opt for frozen/canned fruits and vegetables, they are usually cheaper than the fresh ones and still have the nutrients you need.

For groceries? About $100 to $150 - just for myself. But I like some expensive things like grilled artichokes, exotic produce, frozen vegetarian meals, nice aged cheese, etc.

I am constantly trying to cut costs, and healthy food costs way too much. I already use every method I know to keep costs down - like ONLY buying things when they are on sale, and I have a coupon, buying store brands, seeking broken packages or end-of-shelf life items that are marked way down. I get rainchecks for sale items buy buying what is left late on the last day of the sale, then I get rainchecks because there are none of that item on the shelf. (So I buy at the sale price when the items are not on sale.) I am looking for more ideas to save money. I'm still spending almost $25 per week for two of us - and it is a hardship.
