    A family of 4 costs $300 a week thereabouts. Mind you we don't budget for shopping and go without nothing! We buy good meat, lots of fruit and veggies, we don't buy anything imported nor do we buy cheap home brand or Coles/woollies brands. Stuff such as nappies, wipes, washing powder, toilet rolls are bought in bulk when on special etc.

    Ok I seriously need to know how those of you keep it under $200 including nappies and formula and cleaning products etc.

    Last shopping list was $180 and had zero cleaning products, no nappies or anything baby related, no toiletries. Just food. Minimal meat - chicken breast, chicken thighs, salmon. Fed us 5 dinners and one dessert - tira misu and all I had to buy was biscuits, dark choc and cream.

    HOW do you do it?

    The vast majority of our grocery bill is fruit & veg.

    One PP mentioned that she spends $100 per fortnight and this includes $25 snack food per week for the children. So $25 per week for lunches and dinners per week. This absolutely blows my mind!

    Obviously my shops are just too freaking expensive!

    I use this one:

    300 g Self Raising Flour
    90 g Butter, cut into chunks
    150 g milk
    Vegemite
    Grated cheese

    Rub butter into flour and add milk to make a dough, roll out into a rectangle.

    Spread with (softened slightly) vegemite and sprinkle with cheese. Roll into a log and slice. Place on baking tray, springle a little extra cheese on top of each one and bake in oven at 210deg (190deg fan force) for around 10-12 mins or until golden.

    Easy peasy

    We have a budget of $120 per week for 2 adults and a 2.5 yr old.
    We don't always spend this much and some weeks we don't go shopping because we either bought extra the week before or just stretched it to last.
    We always buy fruit and veggies and the meat we get probably is cheap but that is what we can afford.
    We rarely buy lollies and junk but occasionally we will.
    I'm dreading the next shop because I have to find a new washing powder/liquid that doesn't make DS get bad eczema even though I have 4kg of powder in the laundry.

    Ours ranges between $200-300 per week for everything including lunches, household and personal products, milk & bread top ups etc.

    We are a family of four, DH and I, 4 year old DD and 7 month old DS.

    While on mat leave I'm sticking to about $200/week by baking snacks, cooking more from scratch etc. Like Benji and some other pps' I have not been able to get our shopping below about $200/week on a regular basis though. Hats off to those that can.

    Three of my boys are still in nappies, I include that in the price, and we are at gluten free household. I notice is is around 250-300 per week.
