Usually between $150-$200 a f/n. We usually go to Aldi for pantry/freezer/cleaning items, meat pack from butchers and woolies or coles for fruit/veg and some other things.

Re: How much do you spend on groceries?
I wouldn't mind paying so much if it was quality produce. But at my local woolies and Coles it's just a joke, the bananas lately are awful, strawberries are gross and nothing lasts. There is nothing worse than paying $9 a kg for tomatoes only to find they are yucky after a few days!

We will eat an apple each per day. So there's about two bulk packs of them from the supermarket. Approx $10 in apples alone
We very very rarely eat red meat but two nights a week we will have fish. And at least two nights it will be chicken. Some will be vego but something like a soup packed full of veg and lentils with toast and goats cheese with fresh chives. So not even a really cheap veg meal.
I do try all of the other money-saving things like vinegar for cleaning, cloth pads, etc but food is one I'd rather just admit defeat and pay for if it means we eat properly..... I feel awful for those who can't

2 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs. At least $1,200 per month.
We buy good quality though, lots of fruit and vegies, lots of snacks for lunchboxes etc, the butter we buy costs $7, lots of low fat and sugar products. We don't buy any home brand or imported products.

How much do you spend on groceries?
Yep our coles shop is $250-300 a fortnight. I spend an absolute fortune on fruit and veg, and we eat free range chicken a few nights a week, plus one mince meal. I must spend at least $50 a week on fruit and veg alone.

We have recently acquired chooks so we have an endless supply of eggs and we are in the process of planting fruit trees and making a veggie patch so that hopefully in the future we'll have lots of fresh fruit and veggies to pick from which will help to keep our costs low as our family expands.
Our meal plan usually looks like this:
Monday - meat & veggies
Tuesday - mince burritos
Wednesday - meat & veggies
Thursday - meat & veggies
Friday - fish & chips
Saturday - scrambled eggs on toast
Sunday - leftovers from the Sunday family lunch my parents hold every week
It isn't overly creative and most weeks we won't change the plan at all but as we both work 50+ hours the meals are quick and easy and allow us to spend more time with DD instead of in the kitchen.

What is the 1kg of chips? Does that mean frozen fries or crisps?
And we would starve on that diet!!! Seriously!! How do you do it? What do you do with the meat and veg?
Here is an example of our lunchboxes: an apple, salad sandwich, oat bar, bliss balls, strawberries or grapes, handful of nuts and a yoghurt (can differ but similar amount of food). I'm generally still hungry by 5 o'clock.
