    Usually $100-$150 a week for two adults, one child and two cats. But we're currently trying out Hello Fresh which will work out to be about $200 a week on groceries.

    Default Yet another grocery thread...

    I spend a bit (about $350 for 2 adults, 1 kid who eats a lot and a big dog) but we don’t do takeaway (we go out for dinner maybe once a fortnight and maybe 2 lunches a week ) but the bulk is $180 a week in fish/chicken/meat ($80 at the fish monger- $50 in organic chicken and $50 meat ) and about $80 at the fruit shop and the rest on basic groceries , cheese and bread
    We buy the huge bag of grain free dry dog food at Costco which is $60 that lasts about a month and I buy her no name sardines (.65cents a tin!) to add to the dry food for her dinner plus cheap brisket bones from the butcher
    I shop Monday’s and Thursdays and meal plan dinners and lunches so don’t usually waste anything

    For pet food, I buy chicken necks from the butcher and get other bones too. We only have one dog but she’s over 45kg so eats a lot. We give her dried dog food plus wet dog food occasionally snd many leftovers too. She’s nearly 6 and we always get comments about how good her teeth are.

    For groceries I get woollies delivered once a week which costs about $100 but then I shop for fresh fruit and veg from my local green grocer and I buy meat from my local butchers. Fresh fruit and veg can be about $70 and meat can be the same, depending what I’m cooking that week.

    I’m not good at saying exactly how much but for 2 adults, 1 kid, 1 dog probably around $160 a week.

    I spend the least when I meal plan, do one Coles order online and buy fruit and veg from the market....Sunday arvo, ridiculously cheap prices and better quality than my local Coles.

    Some weeks we’re better than others.

    $300ish a week....
    3 adults, 3 children (8y, 4y, 3m), 2 dogs (Pomeranian & jack russell), 1 cat.
    The 4yo wears night pull ups. The 3mo wears nappies, and is mix fed so also has formula.
    The animals eat a mix of dry foods, and tin food....but mostly human food. Anything from a cocktail Frank to scotch fillet steak. yes, they sometimes get scotch fillet. (I buy in bulk, cut it myself and give them the ends etc)

    our weekly budget is $220, that’s for 2 adults, a 3.5 year old and a baby. ds (3.5) is in pull ups at night only and dd is fully in nappies. some weeks we go a bit over but mostly we are sticking to the $220. i implemented this budget in jan and initially we really struggled to keep the weekly groceries at $220 but now we find there’s often money left over each week. dh is still usually the one that goes over but he’s getting better.

    My husband and I spend a lot on groceries for just two people. Probably $200 - $250 a week. But that's because everything is organic, my husband is fussy with meat products and vegetables as well. It's a lifestyle choice idk if we'll keep it like that once we have bub. Everything else is generic brands - cleaning product, bin liners. Is that too much? That includes my packed lunch too, we have takeaways 1-2x a week when I'm too tired to cook.

    I spend far too much, probably $300+ a week for 2 adults a toddler and 2 babies. I’m sure I could spend less but I’m impulsive and not very organised in my approach.

    I’m genuinely amazed by people who only spend $150, I don’t know how they do it.

    My budget is $300 a week for me, 4 kids and 2 cats. I shop at Coles and Woolworths only. That doesn’t include the cat litter because I don’t buy it from the supermarket.
    Sometimes I’m under and sometimes I’m over.
    None of us are big eaters and the kids have sensory issues and are extremely picky and mainly eat freezer food.
    Groceries have become more expensive lately. I’m in regional Queensland.
