    Default How much is your grocery bill??

    So right now I only have one ds, and I think I do pretty well with our grocery bill - usually under $200fn including formula which is $50. Included in this is cleaning & hygiene products.

    However, I recently had cousins staying with us, and people over for lunches & dinners. Despite cooking cheap meals I noticed a HUGE difference!!!

    So as the title says, how much is your grocery bill & how many is this for? Got me a bit worried about our family in the future when were bigger than 3!!!

    $175 a week - for 2 adults and 2 toddlers.

    We don't budget much - DH likes his expensive cuts of meat which pushes the grocery bill up, plus the fact that the guy is over 6'4'' and needs extra food to fill him up! I also buy catfood for 3 cats and birdseed for a large aviary of birds. DD is also still in nappies which is part of this bill.

    2 adults and 3 boys is $150pw give or take. Lots of budgeting and meal planning to keep it that low and I cook most of our meals from scratch, that also includes nappies for my 2yr old, toiltries and cleaning products.

    Mine is between $200 - $250 per week for 2 adults & 4 kids. Includes all cleaning stuff, toiletries, 2 in nappies full-time + 1 more in nappies at night. I'd love to stick to $200 or below, but I've had the occasional week where it's crept closer to $300
