We eat expensive bakery bread but it gets eaten which is more than I can say for the cheap supermarket bread.
I buy meat in bulk from aldi and separate into meal sizes then freeze. Kids have a fair bit of prepackaged food too.

Just worked out that we spend $95 a week. That's including $50 of fruit fruit and veg (we eat a lot of that lol) It does include all meat apart from beef which we eat 3 times a week because we have a beast done whenever we need beef. That's for 2 adults and 2 very very very hungry kids. That includes barely any pre-packaged food

Around $70 a week I think. 2 adults, one toddler and a part-time teenager. We're vegan though, which makes a big difference I think. We buy grains and legumes in bulk, all fruit and veg from a grocer or markets. We do a bit of dumpster diving too.
