    100 Posts in a week
    $200-$300 a week, this week with hubby away it was $150 which is normal. That includes 2-3 nappies a day for bub and a night nappy for DS, wipes for all the kids and a second fruit and veg shop during the week.

    Sorry that's for 2 adults and 3 children, baby just has booby juice though.

    $100 a week max for 2 adults and a child. Being vegans helps to bring the price down. it will soon be an extra $30ish a week as we are getting a puppy and I will be making her food.

    This is really interesting!

    Hubby gives me about $400 per week for myself and groceries . Petrol etc..

    That's to spend about $200 per week on groceries for two adults a nearly five year old a dog and a cat. I usually spend $50 to $80 more than that each week though...

    I do, however, stock up on a lot of items as hubby and I believe in having a certain amount of stores.. Food insurance lol .. So items that can be stored for lengths of time I stock rotate and refill.. Goes for toilet paper..bandaides soaps etc.. Stuff we would always use..

    Another reason I do this is that if anything happened to us or we were out of work or needed help.. We have supplies.. Not living week to week..

    I like knowing that I have lots of stock in my home to feed my family


    Smokes for hubby, lollies DVDs takeaway days out etc etc are usually paid for by hubby too.. He's fantastic!

    I only buy enough meats to last a couple of weeks worth though. We aren't stocking freezer as we once lost a freezer full of food.. Insurance covered it luckily though. Maybe in our next house we will get a chest freezer and do as someone else said about buying whole cows etc...

    We average about $250 a week, which is solely for food. This is for 2 adults, 2 children and a baby. Over the last 6 months I have noticed an increase in the cost.

    OMG Please say your not exposing the children to all that smoke. What a nice trust fund that could make for them and you would live longer to see them enjoy it. Sorry to judge im not saying your a bad parent at all but as a child i was exposed to smoking and it upsets me to hear of other children without a choice.

    i just went through our dockets and this fortnight we bought:
    1kg mince $10
    1kg gravy beef $8
    2kg sausages $6
    1kg chicken thighs (reduced to $6/kg)
    so $30 for 16 meals (4 serves each meal)

    carbs were rice (13c a serve) potatoes (2kg) and pasta (80c a kg)
    fruit/veg was $50
    we buy powdered milk, rarely eat cereal (make our own muesli or have porridge) $1 for bread, use cloth nappies and breastfeed, grow some fruit and veg, and I cant get below $100 a week for 4
