Can I add that herbs and spices make all the difference to a meal. For example tonight we're having roast chicken pieces and roast potato slices, all up would have ost well under $10, but I rub the chicken and the potato with a little salt, pepper, an Italian herbs mix and a few drops of oil. Roast for an hour and it's beautiful! For something different I could use Thai herbs, or Rosemary, or oregano, or piri piri. A good stock of herbs and spices make your meals tastier and stretch your supplies further.

Amen to that E&B! I make our own curry pastes from scratch and its heaps cheaper and nicer and then you have the spices there for other things as well.

Snacks here are apples, bananas, melon, banana smoothies, plain corn thins with peanut butter, hommus or avocado.
We do splurge once a fortnight and buy DSs only "junk" food - Healtheries Rice Rounds, usually about $5-6 and they are for my bag when we go out and sometimes at home.
Dates and nuts are a favourite snack here too.
And of course home baked cakes and bickies.

Don't quote me, but I think I saw a packet of Vita Wheats in Coles today for $1.00. Look, it was on a stand with some other things, so it may not have been, but I did think 'that's cheap'.
Would make a good snack with vegemite and butter. That was a staple in my school lunch as a kid!
