I found out that I was eating a lot and spending 900-1000 a month for food monthly. Is it too much? Will I save money if i cook and eat at home?

damn, thats way too much. If you start cooking at home, it will save you money plus you will have a healthier food than outside.

Even grocery shopping in walmart costs 100-200 a week, ain't that right? Everything is expensive nowadays like fruits costs a lot. How about the hassle of cooking, cleaning, waste of gas money and time, I don't know what to do.

Usually I eat breakfast that consists of 2 strips of bacon, 2 slice of bread, 2 eggs, oatmeal with blueberry and banana and a coffee, then i go to work and for lunch I order chinese or mexican or itlaian or sometimes indian which costs me from 10-20, then i share grocery with my roommate which comes out to be 250-300 for rice, lentils and meat a month. For the breakfast I buy it separately from Fiesta like every 2 days 10-20 bucks. Even the drinking water separately.

Health is wealth so eat in home beacon and egg plus little vegetables won't cost you more than 150 dollar a week for breakfast.

900 to 1000 is reasonable. I do eat mostly at home and go out sometimes. Still, I spend around 800 per month. Now, you will be saving all those hassles of cooking, cleaning etc PLUS lot of savings on utilities. So, I think you are good...

Let me calculate whole grocery cost/month.

60 eggs/month = 5 dozen brown eggs = 5 x $3.00 = $15.00
Beacon 60 slice = 10 Lb = $ 50.00
Banana = 30 units = 0.50 x 30 = $ 15.00
Blueberry = $1/day = $ 30.00
Milk 8 gallon/month = $ 32.00
Oatmeal = $ 15/month
Coffee 4 pack a month = $ 40.00
Total break fast = $ 197.00

$ 9.00/day (most buffet lunch menu cost same)= 20 days work x 9 = 180.00

Basmati Rice $1/lb/day = $30.00
Vegetable $1/day = $ 30.00
Meat 1/2 Lb / day = 30 x $ 2.00 = $60.00
Spices $ 30/month
Total cost = $(197+180+30+30+60+30) = $ 520.00 approx

There is trade off. If you eat at home, you don't eat lunch outside and vice versa.

$900.00 food cost/month is quite high, unless you eat steak, seafood, pizza, gyro, fast food regularly.

Note: This is not my monthly plan.

Utilities is part of rent.

dindukhi your calculation is wrong
Blubbery costs 5 dollars per box in my area and it lasts only 2 or 3 days so lets put daily value 1.75 not $1
eggs cost 4.99 per dozen in my area and it lasts just 6 days, so I l put $30 a month not $15
oatmeal costs 5-6 bucks and it lasts a week so total should be 20 a month
you forgot the bread that lasts a week, you forgot the almond butter or peanut butter that goes with bread

The place where i live lunch buffet is 12.99 or something, but you can't eat same damn food everyday, so sometimes order sandwich, pizza, quesidillas, philly melt, pasta etc. Further i don't eat those cheap junk foods from macdonalds, taco bell, jack in the box etc. I prefer mom and pop restaurants or mostly Denny's or Papasitos or TacoCabana or Papa's bbq etc.

About the dinner like rice and dal and meat, i barley eat one meal in 2 days but my roommates they eat 2 meals a day, I can't say anything about it. They take cooked food to work too, but i don't.

Further add snacks like almonds, cashews, oranges, apples, grab a taco or gordittas from taco stands later at night

Dozen eggs (cage free): 1.89X3=$6
Gallon of milk: 1.78X5= $9
Chicken: 1.99/lb, (2.99 if you buy organic on Tuesdays from a particular store)X10 =20
Oikos yogurt: $13 for a sixteen pack of Oikos yogurt.X 3 = 39
Oatmeal: Costs 3.69 for this big jar, lasts a whole month (From Walmart)x1 =3.69
Protein Bars: $22 for a 30 pack from SamsX2 =44
Protein Shake: $50 for the whole month. = 50
Pasta/Momo/Chicken Fried Rice for Lunch: $2 if prepared X 15=30
Almonds/Brazil Nuts/Cashews =35

Eat out: 15 Meals X10 (on average) = 150
Other (Rice, Vegetables, Juice, Bread) 100

Approx 500 a month. But I live in the Midwest so its cheaper.

कही सेतोकेटोले फेरी न्वाराण गरे यो धागो बुनेको त हैन ? I questioned the motto of this thread?
Someone was talking , gee I am paying too much for my car insurance how much you guys pay for insurance, drive regular car like Camry or Accord and live in Suburb area ( Mercedes owner have to pay more).
Same applies to your groceries shopping , each store charges differently for the same product. If you go to Whole Food you may be eating ORGANIC / Natural food and paying 3 times. On the top WHAT you eat and HOW you eat. A blueberry cost 5 per box and you are not eating a box a day? If you are then I will suggest to change your eating habit.

Bottom line is you can afford to pay that much and paying for it, you are blending Capitalism and  fitting right very well. अन्त्यमा : खान पिनको कुरा गरी हाल्यौ अनी यती खर्च गर्छु भनी चिट्ठा ( खर्च्को लेजर ) पनि प्रस्तुत गरौ : जसरी खान पिनको सुची तयार गर्यौ मेरो दिमागमा  उब्जिए को कुरा  कही नपाउनेले केरा पायो बोक्रै सित खायो गर्या हो कि ?   क्यालोरी पनि हिसाब किताब गर्दै जाउ: फेरी कसरी पेट घटाउने भनी आर्को धागो चाडै कोरौला !
