Grocery Budgets

I am curious what you spend on groceries per month. I was recently on Iowa's Extension Site and they have a grocery calculator. They quoted my family of 5 a budget of $982.16 per month for food. I have to admit I was really laughing quite hard! Our family grocery budget (toiletries and cleaners included) comes to $200 a month. I am very careful to watch the sales and match coupons with them. I do have a stockpile and maybe two times a year I buy around $80 of meat in addition to my budget. My children and husband even bring lunch to work and school. If people out there are actually cooking at home and spending this much it leaves me wondering what they eat. Anyway just for amusement check it out.
