I was just watching a segment on sunrise that said the average Australian family spends more per week on alcohol than fruit and veg, I found that surprising! We don't drink at home ( unless we have s party) so DH may buy 1 or 2 beers a week if we go out - what about you?

Do you spend more on alcohol?

Money wise we would spend more on alchol but quanity wise we would have more fruit and veg in the house than alcohol hope that makes sense.

DH might buy a carton of beer every few weeks to have a couple on the weekends and I'll buy a bottle of red wine for cooking every couple of months, so nope not us! But I'm not surprised, everyone else in our families would spend hundreds on alcohol each week. Such a waste of money.

Wow, I find that really surprising! Although I guess when i think avout it some people I know would buy a slab of pre mixed drinks each week for $70-80 which is more than they'd spend in fruit and veg.
We only really drink a lot if we have a function on like a wedding, birthday etc. the rest of the time the absolute most we would drink is a bottle of wine for me and maybe half a carton for hubby in a week.

Hmm, I don't think so, but I can't say for sure. We may buy a bottle of vodka once every fortnight, but buy PLENTY of fruit and veg too.
Thing is though that what you buy from the bottle shop could be more expensive than all the fruit and veg put together. We shop at spud shed for our fruit and veg so it's even more cheaper.

Nope, not us

Not me, I spend around $50 pf on fruit and veges and $50 once a year on alcohol

No way. We eat heaps of fruit and veg but only to odd bottle or wine or cider.
Soon we will spend more on booze though when our veg garden is set up

but hubby drinks belgian beer, and i drink wine ($20 bottle), margaritas or the odd cider.
and all our fruit and veg comes from local co-op or gardens so is relatively cheap.
