    $100 a week. DHs pay got stuffed up and we only had $100 last fortnight and I was surprised how easy it was to stretch it!! We didn't go without and had lovely meals. We are vegan and don't have to worry about buying meat though.

    Id DH does the shopping around $200-250 on average a week

    If I do the shopping or go along with him often around the $400 mark.

    You can see why DH hates bringing me with him lol

    Wow a man who is willing to do the grocery shopping solo is great but a man who can do it within a budget is awesome
    My dh will come with me but he blows the budget!

    About $200 a fortnight. Maybe a little bit extra cos we will go grab a few items during the fortnight too - like bread, milk etc. But $200 a fortnight for my big shop.

    DP isn't here most of the time, and I can't eat much... but what I do eat is protein-heavy so I still end up spending a bit on myself (cos it's not like I can just have sandwiches or whatever, and fish costs a lot... lol).

    About $120/week (So usually less than $500/month). This is for 2 adults and 1 child, and includes $25/week for formula, and nappies.

    $200 p/w for two adults and a toddler. That is eating interesting meals every night with leftovers for DH most days for lunch. That's 1/2 box of nappies a week (a box a fortnight) and premium local milk and yogurt.

    I budget $100 weekly for 1 adult and 2 kids ... Although I very rarely spend that much - I'd say $80 is more the norm.
