Ours is $100-150 depending on cleaning stuff and toiletries for two adults and one 5yo.
We never eat crappy food as we just make everything from scratch (& DH is a chef, so that helps ). Even lunchbox food is made as it just makes things cheaper, healthier and tastier.

It probably averages out to about $160 a week that's for 2 adults and 3 children- 4, 2 and 5 months

Tacos - with mince lettuce tomato cheese and avocado. Leftover mince made lunch the next day (toasties) and froze the rest for tacos another night
Rissoles with potato bake and veg
Sundried tom creamy pasta with bacon and home made garlic toast.
Baked potatoes with ham, cheese, sour cream and pineapple
pumpkin soup - I got butternut pumpkin for 69c a kilo from local fruit market!
Homemade hamburgers with salad- ( i make the patties its a yummy mkr recipe)
Slow cooked chicken casserole with rice
Honey Meatloaf with mash and veg
Chicken enchiladas with guacamole
Baked Spuds again ( we have these once a week)
Went out for dinner one night
Breakfasts are weetbix, porridge or toast with spread or with eggs
Lunches for dh are leftovers from dinner the night before. Dd and i usually have sandwiches, crackers, cheese, fruit.
Bulk up meat dinners with veg / lentils etc. Pasta and rice dishes are nice and filling and can use less meat and make meat last 2 dinners instead of 1.
Cakes / slices / biscuits made from scratch
Any snacks i do buy are only if they are on special.
Buy specials / bulk. I try not to pay full price for anything. Home brand is cheap for whatever u can get away with!!
Gives u the general idea

I spend $60 a week on delivered fruit and veggies, then around $100 - $150 on supermarket supplies. I buy meat separately in bulk not really sure how much I spend there.
That is for 2 adults and 4 kids.

$200 a week roughly, 2 adults, 1 toddler, 1 cat and 1 very large dog. I feel we spent way too much. I just suck at getting the cost down and not sure how to fix it.

We spend $500 a fortnight for 2 adults and 3 kids (8,2 and 10 months). I meal plan and buy meat in bulk but my husband is a food snob too so won't eat meat and veg, sausages etc. my kids also eat what feels like about 10 tonnes of fruit lol.

We meal plan as well, and have similar recipes to those listed at least half the week yet we can't it anywhere near $100 a week. Does that include stuff like fruit vegs, milk, bread, yoghurt, snacks, toilet paper etc? I buy home brand, I buy the meat on special. Just don't know how people get it so low....
