    I think mine averages about $200/wk for 2 adults, 2 kids and a large dog, plus half the week an extra adult comes for dinner. Some weeks I only need milk, bread, fruit, veg and meat, so it's $120. Other weeks I need to do the chemicals/toiletries so it's closer to $300.

    I try to keep mine to $150/week, but sometimes it's closer to $200. This is for 2 adults & 3 children 1, 3, & 5yo. I have my own veggie garden, which helps.

    Mine varies - usually it's between $140-$180. This is one full weekly shop at Coles or Woolies and all meals are planned. 2 adults and 1 child.

    I'm considering doing part of my shop at Aldi in future to see how much I can save.

    Default Cost of a weekly shop

    2 adults here (plus 2 cats and a 7 month old baby so doesn't really add to the shopping bill yet - I've excluded nappies from my estimate!). We would spend around $120 a week (food and household items).
    ETA im in SA and I shop between woolies and foodland.

    Between $200-250 per week. Two adults (I am vegetarian) and a 3 year old. I shop at Coles, Aldi, farmers market and Costco.

    I'm looking at some of the amounts and number of family members here and once again am in awe of people's budgeting skills!

    Around $200 week for 2 adults, 2 children. Hopefully will reduce that considerably with Aldi opening up here next week!
