I am guessing around 250 for 2 adults and 2 young children. we spend a lot on fruit as the kids love it and dont eat much veg so i try and give them a good variety of fruit. This doesn't include eating out and when dh goes and buys junk food etc.

I'm very impressed by the budgets closer to $100 per week, that's impressive!!
We used to spend $250pw on 2 adults 1 kid including all nappies, toiletries etc.
Since using a market based home delivery company for all fresh produce incl meat and only doing a woolies shop for the rest sporadically we're down to $200 per week max.

Budgeting, how much do you spend on groceries per week.
Around $300 per week for 2 adults, 1 baby and a 30kg dog.
We don't have a fruit and vege shop so we can only buy from Woolies and our produce market is only on once month so we can stock up then.
We aren't in town water so we spend about $20 a week on that until our filtration system is up and running.
That includes formula, nappies and wipes.
I buy bulk washing powder and napisan so that isn't included.
Joys of living rural I guess.

Max would be $300 a fortnight including top ups. I freeze bread and a 3 little milk lasts us 2 weeks plus. I stocked up on toilet paper when it was on special and haven't had to but ant for months. Same for toiletries and cleaning products. We are 2 adults and 1 child here.

I don't budget for groceries but I do often meal plan. I do my main grocery shopping on a Sunday as I work Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and it usually costs around $200 or more but then I need to go to stock up again on Thursdays as well which can be $150. Sometimes we go more than this if all fruit is eaten.
If we need something, we go and get it.
We are 2 adults and 3 children aged 6, 4 and almost 2.
