    250-300 a week here for 2 adults, 2 kids.

    We have takeout once a week and a cheapie meal (ie eggs on toast) once a week, we eat meat and veggies with every other meal and I only buy premium cuts of meat.

    We do eat processed goods like jatz crackers, rice crackers, fruit bars etc but my kids both eat 2-3 pieces of fruit a day, I think fruit and veg is more expensive than crappy foods

    I do buy in bulk toilet paper, dog food etc

    The only way I could see us cutting back on costs is to buy cheaper cuts of meat, have meat free meals and bake all our snacks but I can afford it at the moment so won't change anything at the moment.

    $150 max a week for me DH and DD (11mths). I have cut done costs a lot by meal planning. I also only cook every 2nd night (cook meals that serve 4) then divide it all up and eat the leftovers the next night. Once DD starts eating larger portions I guess we will have to change this.

    hard to say exactly but around $170 per week for DH, DD and myself. I spend about $30 per week at the butcher (and get enough extra that usually every 5th week I dont need to buy any meat). Then I spend $60 at the fruit/veg place and then every 2 weeks I do a big shop at coles/woolies of about $100. I could definitely cut back on the woolies shop as usually some treats are in the trolley but I refuse to spend any less on meat or fruit/veg however by going to a few more places I could probably save some money but the extra running around isnt worth saving $10 to me.

    Varies between $150 - $250 depending on what needs to be bought that week. Usually averages $180

    That's for 2 adults and 1 9 month old.

    $200-$250 a week for two adults, a baby and two dogs. We do most of our shopping at Coles and occasionally we will pick up a few things from Aldi.

    About $150 a week, plus every 6 months or so we will do an enormous shop and stock up on shampoo, tinned food, flour, etc and spend about $700.

    ETA: that's for 2 adults, a toddler, and two cats.

    This week alone has cost me about $400 but thats because i have 6 adults and 2 kids plus whoever else decides to stay.

    Usually about $150 a week but that also includes lunch from work if i get it too. Thats currently for 1 adult and 1 5yr old.

    This fortnight is my bulk shopping week to stock up so i usually spend about $650 on everything from my usual shop to just general stockup on toilet paper, cleaning stuff, hygiene stuff etc.
