My shop is usually $200 to $300 every two weeks for only 2 adults, 2 toddlers. We don't have to buy nappies or forumla and I hardly eat meat, so for us it is mostly vegies, but if I want things like expensive mushrooms and olives etc we buy them. We should probably stop and save up the money used but it is nice to have an antipasto platter at the end of the week with DH, we never go out so it feels like a date night in sitting outside chatting haha.
We spend around $100. Some weeks less. That's for everything including cleaning and toiletries. Maybe once a fortnight we grab a bottle of wine though which is $20-30.
$250-$300 a fortnight ATM with two adults & 1 toddler who eats a lot these days. It used to be $180 a fortnight so I'm LOVING being able to loosen up a bit and get some nice extras!!!
