Same here, no junk food whatsoever and organic products whenever possible.

We spend around $900 per month for family of 5.

My family and I have tried to avoid putting in chips, candies, chocolates, and other junk food in the cart, and our bill has significantly lowered down.

So is the $900 after you reduced your bill, or before?

It depends. Some months I'm way too busy and have no time at all to eat at home, and eating in restaurants all the time is quite expensive. There are times when it's different, though.
