When I add everything up including pet food, washing powder, paper towels, cleaning products etc its $300 a week. Thats for 2 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs and a cat. And in order for me to keep it at that I have to be really careful. I have no idea how people keep their groceries so low... Wish I could.

Average of about $120 a week (including toiletries, cleaning products etc.) for 2 adults, 3 year old, 8 month old and a dog. We don't eat much meat and often buy fruit and veg from very cheap grocers. Could do it for less (opt for cheaper meals), but we like our food too much :P

I don't know. Mine seems to be all over the place at the moment.
I spent close to $450 last week, but I hadn't done a big shop since before Christmas and needed to stock up on a lot of stuff.
The fridge and cupboards are still reasonably full, so I'll probably only spend around the $50 mark this week.
At a guess I would say we average around the $250 mark per week. I'm trying to cut down though. This year I'm on a mission to bake more and eat more vegetarian dishes. The baking won't necessarily save money though as I'm doing it for health reasons, so am cooking things with ingredients that can get expensive eg lots of wholemeal flour, oats, seeds and nuts.
I do like buying good quality meat and fish and prefer a fruit shop that while not cheap has top quality produce that lasts longer and tastes nicer than most of the fruit and veg I can get from Coles or Woolies.

Cost of a weekly shop
Usually around $350-$400 for 2 adults , 1 school kid and a big dog - majority spent on seafood and organic meat and veggies ( we eat an Avocado a day easily and they are $5 each at the moment at our local fruit shop!)

Around 200 a week, family of 4. I always try and aim for $300 a fortnight but it's extremely hard. Easily go up to and usually over 400 a fortnight. I usually do a huge shop once a fortnight that totals around 300 but often find myself going back for bits and pieces and that's how I always end up over budget.

Around $150 - $200. For two adults, 1 2yo and nappies + formula for 9 week old. I then get bread two to three times a week and take away once a week so maybe add another $20 - $50 for this and other bits and pieces.
