I am the chef/grocery shopper for our family of 6. I used to be able to feed our family on $100 a week, but as of this year, we had to bump it up to $120. You can eat for pretty cheap if you shop at the right places (Aldi, etc.) and cook for yourself.

ditto. and we supplement with veggie items from the garden. You CAN eat cheaply if you are TRYING to.

We never buy ‘steak’ unless it’s on manager’s special half price.

We RARELY go out to dinner.

I would offer out behaviour is different from people whose budget is substantially supplemented with gummint funds. It gripes my 4$$ to see shopping carts packed with expensive meats, cheeses and bad-food snacks.
