It says the average family of 4 spends $1,200 a month. And I'm assuming this does not include eating out. This seems like a lot to me! We spend pretty much the same amount on going out to eat as we do on groceries, so I guess that's why this shocks me.
I guess we fall into the “Thrifty Plan” for families of 2 with individuals between 19 and 50 years old. It says people in this group spend $368.20 per month. This is pretty much what we spend on groceries (a little higher), our goal is around $250-$300 (not including going out).
