Default what is your average food bill a month?

what is your average food bill a month? out of curiousness I would like to know...

for how many people? and approximately what is your weight and height?


I am a short individual, 140 lbs, my monthly food bill for me to mentally function properly would be about $1000 minimum but can go as high as $3000 dollars under healthy eating standards. I also have two dogs 1 big and 1 medium sized.

I do not cook. eat at restaurants only. everything fresh never really eat leftovers.

Let's be honest, you aren't remotely interested in what anyone has to say. You just wanted an excuse to tell us this:-

I always find the more someone boasts the more they they boast about tends to be untrue.

No I am interested in knowing.....

Let's be honest, you are trying to deflect answering my question because you feel embarrassed so you won't give answer so you blame me for showing off.

Watch the clinical psychologist Dr Jordan Peterson's lectures on youtube. I'm confident he can heal your mental illness.

Your hate for humanity will change.

i know i know $1000+ dollars on a food bill is a little excessive..............but I have high expectations.....

I find it odd why you people call bullsh1t on $1000+ a month.....you make it seem like thats a lot of money and its incredibly unrealistic.......apparently you people must be living in a real small town......I live in a big city and its not uncommon for me to walk out of a restaurant with a $40+ tab.....

I don't think $1,000 is necessarily excessive. Everything is relative to your economic situation, location, and lifestyle.

When I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area, I tend to eat out a lot when working there. I don't have time to cook, as I'm often too busy. There where months where my dining out tab would easily exceed $1k /mo, especially if I was putting it on the expense account.

While at home, or staying overseas, my food bill goes down drastically, maybe to less than $400 /mo, but that's mainly due to fact I am eating at home more at that time.

It all depends on the situation.

i read some of these weird posts of people living off of literally 75-80 bucks a month......on reddit....

i don't know how in your right mind you can live off of that amount.....

back in college i tried to live off of $200 bucks a month in hawaii....i ended up doing really bad in a lot of my classes, and had severe depression I realized now that i was really foolish it was clear I was not taking good care of my health in terms of the food bill.

I now spend upwards of $1000+ and I can see how much more productive I am and if I were to take those classes again I probably would ace all of them without issues because I would not be mentally impaired..... such as cannot concentrate or focus or too tired, unable to think clearly...because of lack of nutrition

What I was saying is YOU are a bull$hitter who needs to seek attention and aught to seek help. Making an idiot of yourself and then taking umbrage with the inevitable replies only exascerpates your poor metal health problems.

As JamesNorth implied, you're probably eating leftovers as we speak
well....i do have like 3 big boxes of cheeze its....and pringles......yes I reclip the bags and close the boxes and still eat that....but then again chips and snacks are a different story......

I go to the restaurant and they ask me if I want togo boxes all the time....i say yeah sure....i take it home stuff it in my refrigerator and never look at it again....i end up throwing it out....so i just don't even bother with taking food home anymore....with to go boxes...even when I warm up the food i take 1 bite of leftovers and throw it out because in my opinion leftovers taste like sh1t.

try warming up your leftover half of a burger.....warm up and its all soggy.....
try re eating your salad that you refrigerated a day ago its all soggy....
try re eating your sushi a day ago the rice is all hard and the taste is completely off....

Ask yourself this. What normal healthy person would make up some pathetic tale about how much they spend on food and post it on an ebay suspension forum?


so far I only got 1 straight answer.....from one forum member....

I eat out for every meal so it's by far my biggest expenditure.

But it's Eastern Europe

Would they take it straight from someone who didn’t feel their meals table straight to yours? How would it work?!

I would tend to agree.

However I know a guy who was homeless at one time and would tell me stories about waiting in back of a Pizza Hut store at closing time. He would wait until the staff would toss all the pizzas in the trash dumpster so he could collect them... Very often the pies were still hot and perfectly fine.

Moreover, it was FREE and DELICIOUS.

restaurants sell leftover?
He is saying restaurant asks if he wants to take home a doggy bag ,after his meal.
I agree with him,restaurant leftover does not taste good ,salad is soggy,what looks good on a plate now looks gross coming out of a micro wave oven.
Chinese restaurant stirfry their food under intense heat,30,000 BTU ,can go as high as 100,000 and burn the kitchen down ,cheap cut of meat turns out so tender,but when you take the leftover home,the cheap meat and soggy veggies and canned mushroom etc just do not taste the same.
Spending $1k per month on food ,if you eat in restaurant which serves quality freshly prepared food is reasonable,say you eat one good meal each day-angus or prime steak,veal chop,fresh fish ,scallops,large prawn plus 25% tip,could run you $1k per month or more ,paired it with a glass of wine,or desert and coffee.

large scallops go for $15 /lb in supermarket,cod loin goes for 11.99/lb,loin only.
fresh wild salmon,not farm raised aint cheap,fresh swimming Canadian large lobster goes for 13.99/lb in Chinese supermarket,I have seen live Alaskan King crab,cant recall how much,but frozen ones goes for what?16/lb?
Hard to find prime cut beef these days,but angus is not as tender but tasty,lamb shank is good,veal roast ,veal chop,if you can find them?

Chinese supermarket sells roast pork,the pig head fully roasted has a lot of meat on it,used to sell for $2 now raised to $4.
Grass fed filet mignon goes for 7.99-9.99,buy the entire loin and the price drops by 1 -2 dollars.
try fresh ****ake mushroom raised in CA,it is packed with good healthy minerals,try it,there is also fresh watercress(cleanse your kidney),mustard green,cilantro,daikon if you want to lose weight (water weight).

I quitted Costco years ago,there is a corn meal taste with their steak,I dont think their prices are wholesale,and you have to buy more to get a good discount.and there is an annual membership fee and they dont take credit cards.
Their selection is not that great,like their campbell soup.
These days,you can get better bargain in the large supermarkets without being a member
But it is a lot fun ,you get to taste free sample food ,the only true bargain is the bagels.

did you check Central MARKET which is owned by the same company as HEB.
