My wife, me and our son, live off of about $85-100 a week and are building up our pantry.

Making a meal plan is the first step.  I only buy cheap stuff.  We don't eat steak, I stock up on chicken and beef when on sale.  I get good coffee at costco for $4/lb.  We eat a lot of bananas $.29/lb.  Spaghetti instead of other pasta $.69/lb.  We stocked up on tomato puree/sauce when cheap $.39/quart, this fall we bought 3 large turkeys $.29/lb. 

I can't say we are doing anything special other than trying to not spend a lof of money.
