    What an odd thing for Sunrise to say. There is a massive price difference between alcohol and F&V, so it's quite easy to spend more on alcohol. There's only 2 of us here and I shop @ the market, so if I was to buy F & V it could easily come to only $20, but I could spend more than that on 2 bottles of wine. What a beat up, no surprise, it's Sunrise.

    We don't buy alcohol on a weekly basis, maybe once every few months and even then its no more than $30.

    I come from a family of alcoholics so I refuse to drink around my children.

    Too be honest about a year ago I probably did spend more on alcohol, but since I stopped drinking(except on the rare occasion) I spend heaps more on fruit and veg.

    It was a segment on unhealthy eating and I suppose I found it strange as we easily spend $100 a week on fruit and veg

    Yeah I can see how one could. If you buy mainly organic and there's a few of you. We eat heaps if fruit and veg but it's just my D'S and I, and I have a market on the end of my street (it's heaven).

    I agree.

    We buy our fruit & veg direct from the farmer and it can be as cheap as $30-$40 for organic produce which feeds our family of four for one week. Sometimes we buy extra, but the max we would ever spend is about $60.

    The wine we drink is $15-$20 a bottle (and we buy more than one a week ).

    No but I can think of plenty of people I know who I bet do.

    I'm preg so not drinking but typically I'd get a $17 cask of red every fortnight and DH might buy a $50 bottle of scotch every month or two. We spend about $30-$50 a week on fruit and veg and try to shop at the farmer's market.

    I very rarely drink and DH only has a couple of beers a week. So we would spend an average of maybe $5-10 a week? We only really buy a carton if we're having a BBQ or something...

    When we go overseas, we spend maybe $80 on duty-free spirits which then sit in the pantry for years!!

    We would be lucky to spend $20 a month on alcohol. DH has a beer or 2 if we go out to dinner and that's about it unless we go out for a special occasion
