No way! I very rarely buy alcohol for me and drink at the very most a couple of standard drinks a month. Hubby drinks beer so any money we do spend is usually on a case. We spend quite a bit on fruit on veg as thats what we (read me) mainly eat

I'd rather spend a fortune on fruit and veggies and it get eaten and enjoyed. When bananas were $13 a kg I still brought them - sure they were around $2-3 a banana but if I can spend that on a chocolate bar
For me, I can spend it on a banana for my son.

No I don't drink don't buy any. But buy fruit and veggie every week.

Nope we spend way more on fruit and vegies. We prob buy a bottle of spirits and 3 bottles of $17 wine once a year not big drinkers at all.

not in the house!!! DP and i dont drink unless its a special occasion ie birthday etc. and even then its only for a actual party not just a birthday. i think it would be easy to spend more on alcohol than fruit and veg though as alcohol costs more!! i cant see someone spending $70 on fruit and veg

It's a tough one because fruit and vege is cheap and alcohol can be expensive!!
We would spend about $50 a week on fruit/vege. But we would probably spend the same on alcohol (2 bottles of wine at $25 each).
Eta: we don't stick to the cheap fruit and vege - my kids love certain fruits so I buy them out of season as well!

For those who don't see how people can spend so much on fruit and veg..
We are vegans do that's 90% of our diet.
I brought 2 punnets of strawberries last week for $9 EACH!!! DD wanted them so I got them. Also organic costs a lot more then normal.

We are very occasional drinkers and rarely buy it. When we do 1 bottle of spirits each it lasts us for months/years
So definitely more on fruit and veg in this household

More on fruit and veg for us. We aren't big drinkers - probably spend $15 fortnight on average on alcohol but spend a lot more on fruit and veg- probably $60 fortnight or more

Definitely more on F &V but there are 7 of us and fruit and veggies are the bulk of our diet. I could see how you could spend more on alcohol without being an alcoholic though, it is expensive.
