Re: How much is your monthly grocery budget?
We are a family of 4 (I'm pregnant with #3). We live in Nevada but shop in California at Vons. We spend about $700/month, but just redid our budget and plan on spending $550. We buy a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables, which really adds up. I don't think California is all that much more expensive than other parts of the country (I'm talking about regular grocery stores...we don't have Aldi, Walmart, or anything near us). We drive across the country and visit family across the country several times a year. Some things are cheaper in California (fruit for example) while some things are more expensive. I think it all evens out.
