I spent about $100-180 a week for 2 adults, 1 toddler, a dog and 2 cats.
I buy our fruit, veg and eggs from the farmers market and spend $40-50 for enough for a fortnight. We also grow some veg, but we rent and the ground here is rubbish, so it's in tubs so can't grow as much as I would like!
I also try to buy meat and staples on special to keep the freezer and cupboard stocked and usually do one big and one little shop in a fortnight. DH also takes his lunch with him, so the bits for that are in the shop.
While I love living here, it's a tourist town so groceries are unfortunately more expensive.

I meant $30 lol, thats a pack of 50 a day from the corner shop. And yes, we know that it equals a house deposit etc. If we couldnt afford it we would quit, but the truth is we can afford it (which we are very lucky for and i know that).

Between $300-400 a fortnight for 2 adults, 2 preteens, a 17month old in nappies overnight and a dog.
$80-100 at wholesale butcher and that can last 3 to 4 weeks. We eat meat 6 nights a week and the other night is vegetarian night.
$150 at least in fruit and vegetables (DD1 is vegetarian) we shop at a fruit market.
I spend $150 between the cannery, Aldi and Coles (usually only deodorant and ice cream and dog treats (she very fussy) at Coles)
Every Sunday I bake things the kids take for school and DH work. I plan meals for the whole week and don't deter from it. I make a fruit salad and send it with kids and DH for lunch. I probably make one every 3 days. I make our own bread. We don't drink soft drink, squeeze our own juice.
Damn auto correct changing my spelling!!!

2 hungry adults (one pregnant/breastfeeding and a big hubby) and a nearly-1 year old, $200/week. I skip a shop every month though so it's more like $600/month. Most of that is fresh fruit and veg from the growers market, plus meat.
Perth is an expensive place to live.

Our weekly shop is $250/$300pw eeek for a family of 5 (2 adults, 1tween, 1child & 1baby)... This includes nappies but not formula as we have to buy a specialty chemist formula for DS. I am sad to say I'm too tired most days to shop around, and enjoy going to one main place quickly even when the quality is not always that great my mum would be disappointed!

$400-$450 a week for 2 adults, 3 children, 2 dogs and that doesnt include the 1 dinner and 1 lunch out a week we generally have. Its huge but we live remote so everything is more expensive and goes off far quicker than it should so I am constantly having to top up. I also have 3 toddlers/baby in nappies and a Formula fed baby.
Before we moved here it was around $250 a week inc nappies and formula
