i think "most" people dont shop around and they tend to get all there groceries, meat veg and fruit etc all at the one place. Youll find that actually going to a fruit and veg market or butcher not only are the products much nicer but they have awesome awesome deals

Around $300-350 a fortnight, I try to get that down, I probably shouldn't be so hard on myself, that's with 2 adults, 1 child & 1 toddler. That's inclusive of nappies and household products etc

So I guess I have room for improvement based on what I've read. But I'm still taking comfort knowing that $180-$200 a week is common for two adults and one to two kids. DS is 12months but eats the same size meals as me! It's honestly like feeding two kids !! :/
I'm starting meal planning this week so hopefully I stick to that... Lol
And thanks for the meal ideas! Yum!

All up around $150-180 a fortnight. I meal plan, and we eat minimal meat. We eat meat most days but usually will eat less than 100g per portion. I bulk meals up with a lot of seasonal veggies, and legumes. Most fortnights i'll buy a whole chook and that will do us for at least 3 meals. Tonight we had a roast chicken, tomorrow we will have pasta with chicken mushrooms and sundried tomatoes, and I will make a chicken soup with that carcass and whatever else is left over, with some veggies, beans and pasta. And that will be my lunch for the rest of the week. We also barely use any prepackaged foods. And we use bicarb, vinegar and eucalyptus oil and make laundry liquid for cleaning so that makes shopping cheaper too.
It could be a lot cheaper but I try to buy the best quality meat I can- generally organic. I also get it delivered by Woolies because I don't have time to go to the markets at the moment, bit when we were shopping at the markets I could easily do a fortnightly shop for less than $100. That's with two huge grocery bags of fruit and veg. I have great Tupperware that keeps veg fresh for 10 million years. I do have to top up on fruit before the fortnight ends, though.
