    Do you mean you spend $50 a week? Or do you mean $200 a week?

We already make everything from scratch *pats thermy*.

    Aussie farmers don't do our address either. We use Ceres which is similar but you pick up your food from a food drop house. It's cheap and yum

    I think it really depends on the types of meals and portion sizes too. 2 adults & 1 teenager max $150 pw rarely buy processed food shopping contains basics but we eat beautiful gourmet meals for dinner. Always take lunch too work.

    It's easily done, we spend $200 a week to feed 4 adults, including a 21 year old male apprentice/football player, so he eats a truckload!

    I live in tassie and find it can easily be done. I shop around Coles and woollies depending what we need. We have a couple of fruit and veg places that sell direct from growers and a couple of Sunday markets that are good. Currently we pay only $1.90kg for bananas from QLD but $2-3kg for our local apples!!!

    I highly recommend having a list and planning meals for the week. I shop fortnightly and I can't remember that last time I spent more than$320 on 2 adults and DD2 with treats included.
