A constant debate in my house on how much food should cost a week for 2 adults and a toddler....
Usually I work on $50 fruit/veg and $50 meat/groceries and $25 coffee adventure.
what does everyone else budget on?

Wow. We spend heaps more than this. Thaysv2 adults 2 kid's and breastfed DS. About $300 but often more. I'm a really bad impulse buyer. Ive started shopping online and it's almost cut it in half.

Total shop for 2 adults; $160 - $200 per week. Actual food (so no cleaning products, loo paper etc) probably $120 - $150 of that.

$200 per week 2 adults 2 small children - all inclusive of personal items, cleaning, meat, all food and lunches. Meal planned, but we do eat a lot of meat, I would like to spend less but I am extremely time poor so sometimes spending to make life easier is worth it. I buy a lot from the health food aisle too which is expensive but necessary due to allergies.

$200-$250 usually, can be up to $300 if hubby is home and we have something planned with friends and we need to buy nappies. I don't buy cleaning products though. Today I spent $186 for a 7 day meal plan for the 3 kids and myself but I will have to buy more fruit, milk and bread midweek.

About $300 fortnight but that includes incidental visits to woolies for whatever is needed. Will be going up this week as now have an extra person to feed.
Its now 2 adults and 1 6yr old
