    We're usually between $250-300 and only have one child. We spend around $100 on fresh fruit & veg alone (local fruit & veg shop, cheaper and fresher than Coles), Coles bill is usually about $100-150. We buy meat from butcher and fresh fish from local fisheries. We buy barely anything packaged and make everything from scratch. Our grocery bill does include things like washing powder, cleaning products etc.

    I think a large reason for the high expense is because we buy a lot of things in bulk - 1kg bags of nuts, coconut oil, etc and these are usually from the organic shop on special, but we only buy them every few months. It all adds up, but I would never compromise on food.

    Default Cost of a weekly shop

    About $175 per week for 1 adult and 1 baby (when DP is away) or $400 per week for 2 adults, 2 kids and a baby (when DP, DSS1 and DSS2 are home).

    It really depends on what you eat and how you cook.

    I have cut down on meat quite a bit. I use lentils with mince a lot. Have meatless dinners a bit (maybe 2 nights a week or so). I am not someone who buys branded things for food. And tend to try and buy in season if I can.

    Also depending on where you live will depend on the prices of food. It varies between towns/cities/states a bit.

    Around $120 a week for hubby, me, DS who is 6.

    I do most basics at Aldi, top up at Safeway. Fruit from the fruit shop and meat from the butcher.
