    Plenty - enough to last us at least a month if needed/rationed correctly.

    i could get away with a week of not boying food. I am depleting my cupboards and freezer as i move at the end of the month and i dont want to move all my food stuff.

    I may need to buy some fruit for dd and some veggies, but i have lots of frozen meat, baked beans, pasta, tin tomatoes.

    i dont over buy anymore single parent income so cant afford to, but i do occasionally buy rubbish if i am feeling down

    About 2 weeks. I might be able to stretch it a bit longer if I had to.

    Fruit and veg will last 7-10days only because it got delivered yesterday .. As for bread, milk, eggs etc only 3days or so. There are some frozen meals or canned food but i could possibly survive 2-3 weeks if need be. It would be some very plain boring, non nutrious meals tho :|

    we used to have a lot, but we recently had some tough times with lots of bills coming in. We could probably get by about 2-3 weeks, but we wouldnt be eating particularly well!

    I have about 8 meals frozen plus rice and some pasta. Some beans and spagetti. Being that i am gluten intolerant though, i'd probably only be able to eat rice. mmmm. And we have a few L of long life milk, probably not a weeks worth.

A few cans of creamed corn and a few each of pasta sauces, tomato paste, pesto and curry paste Plus i have a herb garden. We would be fine for a good long while
