I like food but I also like money, hence this thread.

I usually spend $2 on breakfast, $4 on lunch if eating out/$0.30 (estimated) if preparing my own, and $4 on dinner. Supper is optional but it is usually $0.50-$6. Other snacks around $10 a week.

If I'm eating with my parents (at home or outside) I consider it free since I'm usually not the one paying. But when I go out with friends I don't spend more than $20.

Your turn.

I'm currently attending university and our country provides food coupons for students that give you access to pretty damn cheap food. I get more than I can eat for 2€, though the usual price at the places that accept these coupons is about 3 - 3.5 €.

It's awesome being a student.

I spend more on food than I probably should, but it's almost all quality, fresh food. I also go out for dinner with friends once a week, spending anywhere between £20-£50 depending on where we go.

This if I'm on my own.

However, since I'm back with the parents its usually about £20 a week. Thats for buying lunch on a thursday (usually eat out and spend around £10) and then buying pudding on a friday for the evening (between £5-10)

I don't really budget my food. I get by perfectly with my money without having to count every euro.

I've ordered $599 worth of food for tonight.

/not poor

It's not my money though.

/still not poor
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Breakfast, if any: cereal or eggs - <$.50/meal
Lunch, sandwich/ramen/leftovers - <$.50/meal
Dinner, pasta usually w/ chicken - <$1.00/meal

But sometimes I will make some red meat like brats or Italian sausage. And pizza is a regular occurrence. So typically I spend as much on beer for one night than I do on food for a week. I need to work on that...


EDIT: I'm pretty sure at least 90% of your threads are about food.

I actually don't need to budget either because I oversave and don't eat much and I usually have leftovers. But by reducing my daily expenses I have more money left over for big things like food at fancy places and clothes and stuff, which is nice

I spent $5 on Thursday and had like an $18 dinner yesterday. But that's probably the most expensive I've ever eaten. Normal when I don't go out is probably like $4-6 a day

£15 a week, usually maximum. That's including any meat I might want.
I just buy lots of pasta/rice and make my own sauces.

Actually, I'm a student right now so this should be the poorest period of my life (jobs kind of cancelled that out) . Unless I can't find any job later, I don't think I'll ever have to go without that extra sandwich.
#20
Usually like £10-15 for a week's worth of food, but I'm trying to learn how to cook proper meals, so the costs will probably go up.
#22
$4 lunch eating out? that is ridiculous. my cheapest lunch eating out at work is around $6-7. and having dinner out usually goes over $10.

i still live with my parents though, so having dinner at home is free.

I spend about £15-£20 a week on food, excluding about a tenner for the house pseudo-ritual of a takeaway/eating out every other friday/saturday. Then probably about a tenner on drinks for a week, though lately I've barely drunk at all.

probably £60-80 a week depending how many times I eat out or whether I go on a works detail where I can claim for £25 worth of food.

Food is probably where most of my money goes to be honest. I ate out 8 days in a row a couple weeks ago.

It was partly because the place we were at had no internet and the cookhouse was terrible.

Anything less than £50 is unthinkable to me. Averaging around £75 a week atm, not including eating out, that's an extra £30 usually. Back when I was on jobseekers, I went as low as £20 and that was the most dreadful time of my life.

Whenever I start cutting/watching my calories I end up spending like £50 on simple meals and save a lot of money while loosing weight.

At least $50 a week, I eat 4-5 meals a day and usually hit around 4,000 calories. I also burn almost half that because of my job/the gym.

fish, seafood, steak, venison, wine, beer, fruit, jam, honey, bread, cheese.

I suppose I could save a lot of money not going for the premium versions of stuff, but standards.
