    $250 a week, includes nappies (these are only $11 at Aldi though) and a big bag of dog food which is about $32 every 3-4 weeks.
    We don't each much processed food so the majority of the expense is fruit & veg and meat.

    $250-$300 per week for 4 people, 1 in nappies. This does not include the dog food or the formula DS is on. I buy lots of fresh fruit and veg each week.

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

    $90 a week for 2 adults and a 9 month old for all food and household products, plus $75 a fortnight for nappies and formula.

    About $300 a week for 2 adults, 2 older kids that eat like adults, 1 baby, (2 nights a fortnight 2x inlaws), 4 cats and 1 medium sized dog.

    We spend 30-40 a week on fresh fruit and veg, 50 a week on meat, 150 a week at costco and 30-50 a week on staples at the supermarket.

    I could go cheaper but i grew up in a house with nothing to eat so i am a bit of a food hoarder and keep a month supply of food, toiletries and cleaning products as back up.

    About $250 a fortnight for 2 adults and a small dog. We tend to eat out a lot due to our long work hours and lack of motivation to cook, so we admittedly waste a lot of food. I'm hoping to become a bit better with this when I'm on maternity leave. We worked out that we spend on average $200 a week on eating out/buying lunches. Yikes.
