My DS2's food obsessions are actually what cost us the most - his sensory issues make getting him to eat difficult so sometimes when blueberries are $8 a punnet my groceries do cost more because I need him to eat and he only eats a few select foods.

I tend to go to the fruit markets here every sat morning. Means I pay $1.50/kg for sweet potato as opposed to $4.98 at woolies. Also baby corn for $1 for the same amount I pay $4.95 at woolies for.

I'm new to this budgeting thing, have never had to do it before now. We like nice food & I cook most things from scratch.
We grocery/meat shop fortnightly, I like most fruit & veg to be eaten within a few days of purchasing, so I shop for those weekly.
This was my first fortnight budget & I spent $300 for 2 adults, 9 yo & 1 yo plus a dog & a cat. It doesn't include formula or nappies.
I menu planned every meal (breakfast, snacks & dinners), there is a list on the fridge of "dinners". I can tell by looking at the list what I've bought & what needs to be used (fresh veggies/salad) to minimize wastage. Instead of buying sliced ham, buy half a leg of ham, it lasts for a month & is loads cheaper than deli sliced ham.
Before buying cleaning products, make sure you really need them. I love cleaning products, but I can get by with bleach and spray&wipe. Buy laundry detergent that is on special.
Check out Aldi, particularly for things like glad wrap, alfoil, dishwasher tablets etc.
