    Its the pets getting you We do have a dog now so we spend $27 a month on dog food. I shop mostly at Aldies and Coles unless ritchies is having sales. I am lucky in that I live down the street from Coles, and work next to Ritchies and Aldies isnt too far So usually I buy what I need from the cheapest store that week. Everything we buy is on sale usually and if say I want peanut butter I will buy the one that is on sale, the only thing I am a brand snob on is my Mayo and soda everything else can be pretty much any brand.

    Not really, my kitties cost me about 15-20 a fortnight, my bunnies cost me 12 and my bird costs me about 4$ every 3-4 months.

    We do use a few brand things (old el paso tacos, chicken tonight / kantong which I buy in bulk when on special, I only use dearer margerine as I find home brands are usually rock hard a rip the bread apart)

    Us 3 go through 30$ a week on fresh fruits and veggies though.

    We do about 20 on fruit and veggies but we have a really cheap fruit place by my work. Your pets are pretty cheap. Could be where you shop I am luck that I can bargain shop without going out of my way living so close to 3 stores.

    I am a penny pincher though the kids hate shopping with me because I take too long lol they want to just grab and go, but relaly sometimes things lool like a good deal but they arnt like peanut butter the other day I could get 500g for $6 or get like a 375g ( give or take)for $5 they would have gone for the $5 dollar one but it would have lasted 2 weeks where the large one lasts a month. I think I put too much thought into shopping maybe

    Dp- never. He is very picky- won't eat eggs, seafood, pork, anything too wet like soups or runny pasta sauces, rice, noodles (pasta is ok) or anything spicy or exotic. There is only one cheese in his world and that's mozzarella. He eats spag bog, corn beef, sandwhiches, schnitzel, ceral and lasagna. Oh and Hawaiian pizza.

    Whereas I go to a market in china and I'm all, hey, starfish on a stick. Wonder what that tastes like?

    I'm half Asian. I love food. (too bad the other half is "white person who wil get fat." Wish I was built like that part of my heritage.) I cry inside a lot. I have a go at him more often than I should because I love cooking new dishes. I also don't like eating meat and Dp is all "bloody vegetarians are so picky."

    Hello pot. This is kettle.

    Dp is pickier then my 2.5 year old.

    Dp and I are trying to loose weight. I tend to bring it up more than him, but more like I'll suggest a water instead of coke, or ask if he REALLY needs three sausage rolls.

    My ex used to talk about how I should get fit post bub and it really wore me down. Made me feel low. Raging post natal didn't help.

    I think dp the sexiest man around still, but where I see sex god he sees jiggly fat obese man. It's nice though to lie in bed and be all "URGH WE ARE SO FAT THESE DAYS" and joke about it but being loved and having a great love life, than to be unloved and undesired.

    Both of us know when the other needs to binge out on ALL THE LOLLIES IN THE WORLD and we are there to pick the other up once the sugar wears off.

    Yes, I do comment because I really think going to the vending machine, buying a packet of chips and an oatmeal biscuit is not the same thing as 'having lunch'.

    I'll comment if he goes to do something ridiculous like eat biscuits, chocolate or lollies for breakfast. Which happens often. It's the one meal I refuse to prepare him everyday so he will often go for tasty convenience

    I comment on certain things.

    For instance if we eat out and he gets steak, he will eat the hideous piece of fat attached to it, same with bacon. Or all of the skin off a bbq chicken, even if there is a heavy layer of white fat underneath.

    He is a healthy weight but heart problems run in his family, and i wont 'save his feelings' so he can eat himself into an early grave for the sake of some "tasty food" as he calls it. I love him too much.
