"I spend $20 a week on groceries."
My friend at work has a young family of four! I'm in the process of learning from her just how she does it!!
(We're allowed to post positive things on here I hope?)

Three ways this is possible come to mind:
Like my cousins who farm, a lot of food is made / preserved on farm, and they only need to buy milk and a few other things weekly. (Buy and butcher meat once per year, so that doesn't count in weekly budget, buy in bulk from Amazon for flour, etc)
Like my SIL saying they only spent $150 per month (family of 4) at the time when grandma was providing full time child care -- Grandma was buying 70% of the grocery bill for the house, because there was no food to serve the kids and she had a costco membership. SIL was only buying things like rice and some of the veg, maybe a little fresh meat now and then. All the breakfast foods, eggs, bread, yogurt, cheese, packaged food, lunches, and most of the food for dinner was bought by her.
Like my DH -- he spends $20 a week on groceries, and a lot on eating out lunches.. and I spend the remaining $150 per week on groceries...!
:-) I hope it is more of the first than the last.
