We are a family of 2 adults, 9yr old & 18mth old plus a dog and a cat. I spend an average of $350 per fortnight.
I meal plan, check catalogues for specials & try to spread the cost of cleaning products across a couple of shops. I buy good quality food, Huggies nappies & wipes.
Before I started menu planning I wasted so much food, I menu plan every meal including snacks. We have the list of meals on the fridge and take turns choosing what we're eating, this really helps Miss 9 to eat her vegies.
