Sadly, more on alcohol for us I do the weekly shop and spend probably about 50-60 on fruit and veg including frozen.
DH is a big drinker, even with recently cutting back on alcohol he may spend double that amount.

DH buys a carton of beer about once a month, so i guess we spend $10/week on alcohol.
I spend a lot more than that on fruit and veg. I love fruit and fresh veggies.

Drink alcohol only rarely (bfing).
Off topic: have shopped @ Coles and Woolworths, also markets from time to time. Markets most certainly NOT cheaper.
Different stuff perhaps, more local produce, not less $.

absolutely not in my house. We buy alcohol when we go overseas. We have alcohol in the house that has been there for more than two years. I dont spend much on fruit and vegs, as there is only the two of us at home, but what I spend on alcohol would be zero.

Definitely not. I spend a fortune on fruit and vege and rarely buy alcohol.

Yep. Every week without fail.
DH buys a carton a week. He refuses to drink beer that isn't imported. So it's $45 a carton at the absolute cheapest. When I'm not pregnant or breastfeeding I tend to buy a bottle of wine a week and spend about $15 a bottle.
If we are going out somewhere or having a get together that amount would double. Easily. Don't even ask what I would spend on a girl's night out.
I spend about $40 a week on fruit and veg.
I really don't see the big deal? Some people buy alcohol. Some people get their hair done regularly. Some people go to the movies once a week. Some people buy their child a new toy every week. All of these things are probably more expensive than the weekly fruit and veg shop.

I'm a non drinker so never ever spend money on alcohol. DH drinks very rarely. I doubt he would spend more than about $30 on alcohol for a whole year. We buy a lot of fruit and vegetables each week.

Nope. I'll buy a bottle of wine maybe once a month.

Not usually. If we're having people over for dinner, then it's a lot more.
On a normal week we spend $50ish on fresh fruit and vege (including top ups). Add an extra $30 if we go to the markets and buy loads of finger limes and passionfruit. We eat and juice loads of vege. Also DD and I are addicted to pumpkin (at least 3 grey pumpkins a week). Some days we have pumpkin with every meal...
At most we spend $20 a week on alcohol (one bottle of wine or 3 ciders or a couple of drinks if we go out).
