    We spend about $110 a week on groceries but thats not including nappies and wipes which we stock up every 8 or so weeks and that is 3x huggies nappies(30 a box) and 2x 10 packs curash wipes(27 a box), so 90 for nappies and 54 for wipes. He has a bottle of formula at night time and that has been for the last 2.5months which is a tin every 3-4 weeks.

    I spend far too much on groceries each week... but what that means is that there are weeks when I needn't buy anymore than a few fresh veges/fruit and bread/milk.

    My freezers (a big deep freezer, and one on top of the fridge) are both full at the moment... so I've done my overloading for a while and will hopefully not have to buy much in the next few weeks.

    I aim for under $300 a fortnight.

    2 adults and 2 kids (includes everything, DD still in nappies) we average about $175 a week. Considering I'm gluten free I reckon we do well. We don't buy much packaged stuff and I think that makes a big difference.

    Around $250 for family 6 (kids 7, 5, 2 and 7 mth), younger 2 in nappies (we buy huggies as found cheaper ones did not cut it!) and youngest on formula (use Nan Gold which is a more expensive formula).

    I've blogged about some ways people believe they're saving on their grocery bills but really are not. Here it is.

    We have a $200 a fortnight grocery budget for 4 people. We very very rarely go over and often have extra.

    We spend about $350 per week for two adults and five children, including two in nappies. We prob spend about $40-$60 on meat, $60-$80 on fruit and veg, $60-$80 on groceries (real coffee, organic chocolate, etc! ), $40 on dairy, $30 on bread, $20 on washing liquid/powder (I use vinegar for general cleaning), and $20 on toiletries, on top of about $40 on baby nappies/wipes. I plan on buying more meat from budget butchers, and fruit and veg from markets as I have a couple of months off uni now, so more time!

    Two adults and 5 kids with 1 adult and 4 kids gluten free, frankly I really don't want to think about the cost. I do like to keep in mind though that we don't buy premade anything and our fruit and veg in about $100 per week alone.

    I spend $200 a week for 2 adults, 4 kids.
    This includes fruit n veg, meat, nappies for 17month old, cleaning and toiletries and dog food.
    I make most from scratch, meal plan, shop at a farmers market for meat and fruit/ veg/ eggs. Some weeks it's a little more, some a little less depending.
    I bake for the kids lunches and they eat lots of fruit
