    Could get away with $130 a week of carefully planned meals and absolutely no junk food or takeaways. And we would be surviving on pretty much bread by the end of the week.
    Eating comfortably costs us around $250, that's with mid week top ups on essentials.
    We shop at woolworths, aldi, coscos and get our meat at butchers.
    We get toiletries and cleaning stuff once a month.

    Default Budgeting, how much do you spend on groceries per week.

    About $200 per week on average, but can be more or less. 2 adults, 2 kids.

    We go through 7L of milk, 5 loaves of bread, 6L of yoghurt, and about a tonne of fruit and veg

    $160 on average per week. 2 adults, 2 kids and a cat.

    I buy most fruit and veg at our local grocer (great prices), meat on special and freeze, minimum packets, lots of baking from scratch (and freezing - chest freezer is my friend).

    Default Budgeting, how much do you spend on groceries per week.

    We would spend around $250-$350 a fortnight for 2 adults 1 teenager 2 kids 1 baby and a dog

    Our new budget for the next 3-6 months will be $250 max a fortnight
    That's minus the teenager though and not including nappies and wipes which I buy in bulk every few months

    For 2 adults, 2 toddlers and 1 dog (which eats our leftovers and a bit of dry dog food) we usually spend $120-150 in our main food shop each week (that's all food, cleaning, toiletries etc). Other incidentals and top ups would probably add on another $15. We rarely have takeaway and I always plan meals to make sure I use up everything so nothing is wasted. If we have home made pizza I buy a big jar of tomato paste and whatever is left over gets used in another recipe later in the week. I also plan meals according to the specials.

    About $100 /week on 2 adults and an almost 7 month old. We have a really good, cheap fruit and veg place down the road which saves us probably $60 a week

    Approx $150 a week for 2 adults, 3 kids (6, 4 and 18 months) 2 cats and a Pineapple conure.

    However I do tend to spend more some weeks if something is on special and I stock up etc. And I buy our meat in bulk and freeze it
