    Default What do you spend on your food shopping each week?

    $110 a week for 2 adults and 3 kids I shop at aldi, discount fruit and veggie shop, woolworths and Coles as I get the stuff we need from which ever one has it on special they are all in the same area so spend no extra on fuel to shop around just time.

    Dh gets paid monthly so I allow $800 per month. I'm almost always under except last month I was close but that's only cos I bought a few extra treats for over Christmas. This includes nappies and formula for DD2 as well as dog food for our boxer.
    We buy laundry powder in bulk from big w. a 5kg box lasts us a good few months. I meal plan & bake most of the kids snacks from scratch.
    We don't have aldi do I use a mix of Coles and Woolworths.

    We usually spend about $220. $50 at the veggie market, less than $150 at Coles and maybe a few extras during the week.

    I reckon $150 is a magic mark for Coles. For a while there we went over that amount weekly, and Coles started sending us flybuys promotions where we got discounts if we kept spending more than $150. I shifted to the market for veggies, dropped below $150 in Coles and the promotions have stopped. The sneaky so&sos!
    Eta we're 2 adults & 2 kids, with dietary restrictions, and we all eat meat

    I have no idea... I go to the shops and buy stuff when I need it. Im so hopeless at menu planning, I tried last week. I do need to try to budget groceries though, my new flash in the pan mission!

    Off Topic but with this - I get the flybuys promos sent to me all the time and it's typically based on a spend of $130-$170. Which is actually what I spend so it doesn't overly bother me.
    My mum gets the same points bonuses as I do - eg spend $xxx to get 1000 bonus points - but only has to spend $30-60!!!
    I feel ripped off! Lol.

    For those of you who spend $100 a week or fortnight is love to hear what kind of meals you cook I really need some cheaper alternatives
