First thing first: this blogger here is a writer, and in no way a mathematician so don’t expect me to divide $700 by eight children.
Ok, so my desktop calculator says it’s about $88. So that’s $88 worth of groceries for every Gosselin kid in the Kate Gosselin household.
That’s right: Kate Gosselin shared with her fans on Twitter today that she spends a little over $700 in groceries to feed her family of eight children.
For those who were worried about her financial situation, fear not, as the Gosselin kids are doing pretty good with their army-like supply of goldfish, chocolate milk, whole grain cereal and tofu sandwiches.
Kate didn’t specify how long her grocery run lasts at her house or where she shops (I’m guessing Costco?), but in today’s economy, any family that has to spend $700 on groceries has to burn a pretty deep whole in the pocket especially if you’re unemployed.
For my family of four (plus one dog) we spend an approximately $200 a week on groceries and that’s shopping at Target with coupons. I’m guessing that the $700 that Kate spends lasts about… two days.
Tell us, do you think $700 for a family of eight kids and one adult is too much or not enough? How much do you spend on groceries for your family?
