    Default How much do you spend on groceries?

    For myself, a 7 year old, a 5 year old and a 2 year old, plus two large dogs and two cats I spend roughly $150-$180 a week. I shop at woolies for staples and then do a butcher and fruit/veggie shop run. My kids eat a lot and that price also includes pull ups, toiletries, cleaning products and snack foods.

    This is an example of my weekly shopping list. (Yes, I usually leave Fri empty for take-away etc. Weekends are usually meat out of the freezer, omelette etc)

    This is not the only stuff I buy- I do get things as I go along too- things that are on sale that won't spoil, sometimes things I normally wouldn't buy... but this is the guts of my shop

    I spend about $100/week but am trying to be even more frugal. It's only my DS and I and I never buy soft drinks or unhealthy snacks (biscuits, chocolate etc). I only cook a couple of times a week too because our leftovers get us through a few days.

    Default How much do you spend on groceries?

    I aim to spend between $150-$250 just depends on how much or little is left from the fortnight before.
    I try to buy everything I can in bulk, don't use much cleaning products, make as much as I can from scratch.

    I make Fridays and Saturdays lazy dinners so toasties or eggs on toast ect, this saves money, always say yes to mum when she invites me over for dinner

    My biggest expense is my dog he is really fussy with what he will eat and I still have to buy a packet of nappies once a month for dd2 (night nappy)

    $250 a fortnight for 2 adults and 3 kids. My kids are on failsafe diet so I bake alot of their stuff otherwise it just gets to expensive. I also grow alot of veggies and have chickens so never buy eggs.

    We spend $ 40-50/wk on fruit/veges, 100/fn on grocery staples and about 100/3mths on a bulk meat shop. So that's 100-130/wk on food for 1 adult + 1 bf-ing adult and 1 toddler. This is in Brisbane suburbia.
