I try to stay around $350 a fortnight ($400 max) for 2 adults, toddler and preschooler. Including nappies, household products and food.

Way too much at the moment! Miss 10 has been loving things like deli cheese and crackers for afternoon tea, she's a good eater and has the more expensive breakfast like Burcher muesli. We've switched to Mungalli Creek yoghurt and milk too, I've found we now use less milk than before but it's a bit more expensive and the yoghurt is nice but again it's not cheap. We have loads of room to move in our budget. We go to the shop most days so I haven't really sat down and worked out how much it would cost. We do get good quality and we buy meat from the butcher and fruit and veg from the market on a Sunday then top up at the local produce place. I've only recently switched to Mungalli Creek dairy but so glad to have discovered it.
2 adults and 4 kids I spend around $200-230 week.
I try and spend less, Barely buy any junky snacks, lots of healthy food etc but the 4 kids eat a lot.
We have $350f/n for 2 adults and an 18mo. If the money runs out, we have to make do as there is no extra in the kitty.

We spend about 250 a week, it's hard to get it lower as we have allergies and have to buy very specific brands and products.
Eta that's for 2 adults& 2 kids

Wow everyone's food bills are a lot less than mine. I spend approx $250-$300 a week for 2 adults, a 4yo and 16 mth old. Would love to spend less but don't know what to change. Ive started to get washing liquid and laundry liquid at red dot which saves a lot, I cook from scratch and don't buy the kids pre packaged snacks or anything. Any suggestions?
