5 thoughts on “Photos: Weekly Food Expenditures from Families Around the Globe

  1. We spend an average of $133.00 USD a month on food. This is a lot compared to the average small expat. family. May Allaah help us. We bought our Western eating habits with us and tend to look for familiar brand names when we shop. These things add up.

    So, I’d say for the average small family (hubby/wife + 2 small children), you will probably spend the same amount as we do if you like Western brand named items. $100 USD is more realistic if you are thrifty.

    A larger family…Allaahu Aa’lam. I have to ask around for estimates.

    As salaamu ‘alaikum.
