oh yeah, I forgot to add in "etc" after all that, but seriously $75 a week can buy you a lot of stuff, including a few steaks a month. I'm on a diet right now, so fruits & vegetables, blueberries, salads, etc are the first things that popped up in my mind
Salmon is like $5 for like a 3-4 pack at Walmart. I shop all over as I like to get certain things at certain places. But you can get veggies at Walmart for cheap. I would get specialty sauces and whatnot elsewhere, but I don't know why food costs have to be so high. Most apts., depending on region, offer amenities too. I chose one that had those extras so I wouldn't want to spend money on a gym and so on. Plus, outside workouts are free.
I've also bought steaks at Walmart and I'd put them up against other grocery stores. Just look for items on sale. If I wanted a specialty piece of meat/poultry stuffed with something, then sure, buy that. Don't avoid feeling like a normal person, but on avg., grocery costs can be kept in check.
