very doable we spend about $180 a week for 2 adults and 5 kids (7,6,3,2,1) some weeks its less some weeks more when we stock up on stuff again but always usually around the $180 mark and thats nappies for 3 and wipes once a fortnite/3 weeks we spend alot at the fruit shop (usually around $60/70 a week) so my kids eat alot of fruit for snacks and alot of vegies at dinner time
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 think you should EASILY be able to do it OP!
DP eats a lot of junk, and we still manage below that...
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.
