I've been shooting for $40/week for 2 people lately

Response to Let's talk about it--$30 week for groceries

But this doesn't take into account that I have some stuff stocked up. This week I spent just under $10 and I'm serving mostly vegetarian meals. I switched from the Jimmy Dean breakfast croissants that I normally keep at work (they come out to 92 cents apiece) to oatmeal, which I jazz up with dried fruit I already have on hand. I almost always bring leftovers for lunch. Today I brought a hot dog. I cooked a couple things over the weekend and we've been eating the leftovers all week, tonight will be the first night I cook all week. I know limiting yourself to such a low amount can be done, but I'd hate to have to do it all the time.
