    Default Grocery bills for single parents

    I know 'how much do you spend on groceries' has been done a lot but I was wondering if any single mama's with just one LO might like to share with me so I have an idea of how to work out a budget from diddly squat.

    Default Grocery bills for single parents

    I'm not a good example, but about $250 a fortnight which increases if it's a nappy fortnight. I could get by on far less if I needed to as well.

    I would suggest, if you have a little bit of cash to spare now, going and spending up on bulk items. I have had fortnights where I've relied solely on pantry items. I know Woolies has 10 kilo bags of white rice on special for $10 atm. I bought the brown rice bag last week with the same special.
