    I got most of the ideas from threads on here actually....i was skeptical initially but it can b done for sure and we still eat really well

    I think we buy too much convinience foods these days and stuff we just dont need!

    We spend between $200 and $240 usually. Includes good coffee, nappies, heaps of fruit and veg, almond milk, nuts, yoghurt. I have PCOS so tend to steer clear of an abundance of cheap hi-carbs that usually bring the price down. My husband also has a good appetite even though he is well within his BMI. 3 kids 1-5yrs old.

    I'm finiding we're spending about $200-$250 a week for the 3 of us at the moment. I need to figure out how to get that down given we're going to have to include nappies in that soon!

    I don't have PCOS, but yes I try to not buy the high carb foods. We don't use a lot of fillers as I'm dieting. We don't eat a lot of rice, pasta type foods.

    Hi Delirium! - it would make it cheaper wouldn't it?! I have a friend whose family are all very slim and can eat anything. They tend to eat a lot of high carbs and creamy type foods with very little veg and get away with it. We never eat out (well - perhaps 3 times a year), our 'convenience' foods are the leftovers we freeze - lol!

    Ours is around $120-150 a week for 2 adults, a 5yr old and an almost 3yr old (who is still in nappies)

    I meal plan, and shop at a bulk butcher. I also bake from scratch a lot so less packaged food. Most expensive is my youngest sons blueberry obsession... at $8 a punnet and he would eat a punnet a day if I let him, It can get expensive lol.

    carbs are not my friend lol I find I stack the weight on when I use these sorts of fillers in meals.
