“If we’re doing Chinese food it’s usually for lunch and it’s usually somewhere between $60-70 (£44- £51).
“I end up getting the lunch specials, everybody gets their own, everybody’s happy.”
And if the Hoskins want pizza it’s even cheaper for Jenn.
Sie fuhr fort: “Usually it’s four pizzas so it’s like $30 (£22), I also get breadsticks so maybe it’s a little bit more

“To me that doesn’t sound bad for the amount of people that I’m feeding.”
The mum’s followers were baffled as to how she manages to spend so little, with many admitting that they spend around £44 on Chinese food for a family-of-four.
In a follow-up video, Jenn said: “I can’t figure out how the hell you guys are spending so much.
“It’s Friday and it’s Chinese takeout day and I get everybody a lunch special that comes with a portion (of food) fried rice and a drink.
“Seven sweet and sour chicken meals, a General Tso’s chicken and a bourbon chicken. My total was $62.66 (£46.51).
“Everybody’s gonna have leftovers because the portions are huge and it’s Chinese food so you’re hungry again in an hour and a half anyway courtesy of MSG.
“But several of you said your family-of-four is spending what I spend and that’s crazy to me.
“I think the only weird thing we do is that we all get waters but that’s because we all drink water, we don’t drink a lot of soda or anything.
“Now I feel like I am not eating out correctly, like I am spending way too little but like kids meals are normally like $4-5 (£2.97 – £3.71) at a fast food restaurant.
“At a sit down place? Mögen $6-8 (£4.45 – 5.94) it’s not adding up to the totals that you guys have in my comments.”
