And you're right... $300 is a lot to spend if a large portion of it is soft drink, juice, cordial etc (now that DOES make me cringe!!) or other similar things
Don't get me wrong, there are unhealthy treats in my trolley too, eg chocolate etc, but since being relatively dairy free even my guilty pleasures are gone (except for my new fave oreo's)!

I spend loads..
about $500 a week.

Not all junk..but we eat really pricey meat. I get it as the butcher.
Also A2 milk and free range eggs..
we do not eat a lot of junk.
I go to harris farm to get all the veg and fruit, woolies to shop and my butcher for meat.
I also go to costco once a month and spend about $300.

$60 a week on seafood, $80 a week on meat and chicken ( free range and organic) $100 on fruit and veg and eggs ( mostly organic) and maybe $50 on other groceries for 2 adults and a hungry toddler! DH wants me to cut down but I'm too fussy!

If you check out my clean eating thread I started I've actually got a few pics of what I eat in there - plus a list for those who were asking.
The unhealthiest it gets is pretzels for my kids. I used to have MUCH bigger shopping bills. But I also ate a lot more unhealthy back then. Obviously just my own case - but anyway... hope that cures some of your curiosity

I don't actually really know but I would guess around $250
I buy a lot of fruit and veg, don't buy chocolate, soft drinks, lollies etc.
I buy what we need and try to meal plan.
Food is one thing I don't compromise on, but I do shop at aldi when I can be bothered. I was still buying bananas when they were almost $20kg as my kids love them.

No idea really.
Our shopping is a tad scatterbrained.
We go to markets on the weekend, deli and market during the week and supermarket for things as well.

$250 a week for 2 adults and 5 kids aged from 18 to 2

A lot lately $120 to $150 but that includes nappies, wipes (home childcare), and dd is eating lots of bread and cereal on a gluten free, dairy free diet. She uses rice milk for breakfast but has nut milks too. She eats $12/w in bread and $8/w in cereal plus $7/w in milk, and that only covers part of her breakfast. We eat a lot of seasonal fruit and veg, we get eggs from a friend who has ex battery hens so they roam around her property and leave eggs in odd places including the top of the dryer. I do buy some packaged things sometimes, but not often. It's just going from $4/loaf to $6/half loaf of bread, cereal being triple what it was and paying up to $6/L for milk, with a pre-teen sporty kid, really has an impact. I also provide fruit for afternoon tea for other kids.
