$60 per week average for couple including alcohol and coffee but not food eaten out which we do maybe once a week. Some background: I am all about scratch cooking and store brands. I only eat poultry sometimes and do the cooking so I focus heavily on poultry meat due to environmental concerns when I cook for us/my husband. When I just cook for myself it's usually vegan. Also we live in Wisconsin so food, especially dairy, is cheaper here than it is for the NYC people. I also do not buy organic stuff very often, I know I should though.
@ThatJenn Warm thoughts to you and your family right now.
@kristaphone "THIS IS MY FIRST COMMENT" Yay! Welcome!

@Blondsak Congrats! And you're a librarian, that's great!
“LS: so I don’t feel like I have anything worthy or interesting to say which makes it hard to write blog posts for people to read. ” I don't know if you will take it to heart Logan but I have to say it anyway: You are very interesting and I enjoy your writing very much. Honestly mean it. Not saying it to make you feel better. So file this away for later when thinking that your writing is not worthwhile.
@stuffisthings Such a baby would be MRId, PET, or CT scanned quite a few times ($1000 - $4000 each).Cost of the surgery room, anesthesiologist/s, separate insurance for the facility, cost of the monitors and equipment in the NICU, cost of nutrition and feeding of a very delicate infant (it's very complex). The perinatologist daily consulting and reviewing the case while they are hospitalized. The cost of taking care of the mother before and immediately after the birth. The prenatal care costs of taking care of an obviously high risk birth before they were prematurely birthed .
Generally spent on what I anticipated, it just cost a little more than I anticipated. $9 more on Mother's day dinner. Extra $5 because Marine Core charity was outside Sams club. Extra $15 at Sams for cakes for new members at church because they had only one decent ready-made cake (chocolate with white frosting). ALL of the others were plain white cake with white buttercream. I mean I know some people are fans but, I'm sorry. I just don't approve of your lifestyle. So I spent extra money to supplement with decent cupcakes.
