    I know this has been done so many times before...but, how much do you spend per week on food? And how many people are you feeding?We spend about $250 - 300/week for a family of 4. We used to spend less, but that was before we needed to eat gluten free. I'm interested to hear how other households do it!

    Default Groceries

    About $1000 a month or more (never less) but we buy everything we need and want.

    Cleaning products, toiletries, pet food, produce, frozen, fridge, meats, etc.

    We have a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children under 4) but hubby is away half over the time literally. We also have 4 chooks, 2 cats, 1 dog and 1 rat.

    We entertain fairly often too.
