Living expenses can add up quickly each month, including housing, healthcare, clothing, food, transportation, and other activity costs. One expense that is hard to cut back on is food. In fact, in the U.S., households spend more than $7,700 per year on groceries and going out, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Breaking the numbers out even further is the U. S. Department of Agriculture. It says that a “thrifty” food plan for a family of four costs $146 each week, a “low cost” food plan is $191 a week, a “moderate cost” plan is $239 every week, and a “liberal plan” falls around $289 a week.
