    Yep. We buy f&v at the market and usually spend about $25 which will last us a week (topping up on a few bits throughout the week), if we drink, I'll only drink good wine or white spirits so $20-$40, and we usually go out once a week for dinner and have a bottle of wine.

    Its less ATM though as I'm not drinking and dp is happy with cheap stuff!

    We are like you FL go down to local markets every Sunday and never spend over $25 for a weeks worth of f&v we are not spending as much in alcohol at moment as I am preg but when not we would spend about $60-$70 every couple of weeks that could include ctn beer for hubby, & I would normally grab a ctn of wine which we would share or btl of spirit

    Some of you seem to spend a heck of a lot on F&V.... we're not talking about groceries right, just straight up fruit and vegetables for one week. Are you buying out-of-season produce? from gourmet organic markets??

    Well obviously it's only me and DS but I only buy F&V that's in season as it's cheaper - we eat veg and fruit every single day and it's cheap.... certainly a lot cheaper than packaged/frozen foods which I don't buy!

    Even just one bottle of (decent) wine is more than I spend on F&V a week!

    I guess I depends on the price of the alcohol. We don't drink so it's a non issue for us

    I don't care which fruit and veg are in season. My kids eat it, so I buy it. I'd rather have a variety, and I don't spend money on alcohol anyway.

    My weekly shopping would include potatoes, carrots, zucchini, onions, capsicum, rockmelon, apples, bananas, mandarins, grapes, tomatoes, lettuce, watermelon, snow peas, green beans, corn cobs, mushrooms, parsnip, sweet potato. That's standard. Occasionally I will buy strawberries, leek, pumpkin, celery, kiwi fruit.

    I cook pretty much every night using fresh veg.

    I bought DP a beer yesterday - he deserved it after the week we've had with our dd. I think it's about the only $7 we've spent on alcohol between us for the better part of 12 months. Since I fell pregnant DP pretty well cut out all alcohol - we were ocassional drinkers before that. I don't miss it but I know he does from time to time & he'll always accept when my Dad offers him a beer.

    We do spend quite a lot on fresh produce as we buy mainly organic. So lucky we don't waste money on booze because we'd never afford both!

    Not in this house, but we aren't big drinkers. Though I have friends and family who I know do.
