Cut out the steak. I know you said your husband is fifo and you only eat it when he's there, but he needs to make some sacrifices to help you save, and that's a good place to start.
Aldi nappies are the best!! I used huggies when dd was a newborn then started buying Aldi nappies at infant stage, she's now in crawlers and I cannot fault them. Only $11.50 pk for about 60, much cheaper than supermarket brands too :-)

Have you tried Grocery Run? They are a online website with $11 capped shipping. They have so many specials all the time with brand name stuff. Might make a saving there?
At DS1 school they have litterless lunches so I have a cooler bag with a hard container for a sandwich, yoghurt, carrot/celery and a piece of homemade cake/biscuit. I use a little water bottle I freeze each night to keep his lunch cold that fits under the yoghurt container. He has a separate water bottle they all have to have and they have a special spot for in the class but he can use the little frozen bottle that has defrosted by lunch if he wants super cold water. Could something like that work? I just bought the container and cooler bag from Woolies.
Have you guys got a good vege/fruit patch? We have really paid attention to ours this year and we are getting a good return from it! I am hoping the set up cost will be recovered quickly and we can have really nice fruit and veges.
Veggie garden, nope. I'm not even going to bother lol. I kill everything I try to grow. I hate gardeningb with a passion.
I haven't seen that site I'll have a look at it.

Indigo, I make yoghurt at home, without the need of a yoghurt maker. All you need is milk, and 1 spoon of yoghurt from the previous batch.
My hubby is not big on money saving, but between the two of us, we spend 100 $ a fortnight for groceries. We eat mostly vegetarian food though!! I wash the dishes by hand, don't use the dishwasher( but its just 2 of us, so not many dishes), we buy HB dishwasher tablets, dishwashing liquid, washing powder as well as all other cleaning stuff. We have just moved into a new home and used Kmart and superamart to do it all up, saving a huge sum.
We dont have kids yet, first due in dec, so cant say about those expenses!!
