    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.

    Eekkkkk - blueberries are currently $3.49/pun where I live (and that's not even cheap market prices!!)

    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.

    They're about $5 a punnet where I live at the moment but I have paid up to $10 a punnet before. The things you do to get food into fussy kids lol

    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.
