    Default Yet another grocery thread...

    We spend about $150-$180 a week for two adults & DD who is 3yrs (night time nappies) I do majority of our shop in coles, a few things I get in woolies as coles don’t stock them & a few things in aldis. Lucky they are all in the same shopping complex

    400/ week for 2 adults, 3yo (No nappies) and 6w old (nappies, no formula). We're terrible. No meal planning, at the shops every flipping day, and a lot of food wastage.

    We are- the groceries are our major fail! I'm sick of arguing with DP about grocery costs and meal planning (I.e doing it myself, she says she's happy with whatever and then complains about what I planned), so I've just given up. 400 doesn't include wine, does include beers. We have a naked wine account that comes out of general account. That reminds me- I need to order some more red...

    yeah dh is crap at the shops. i’ll send him in for 3 things and he comes home with 5 bags and $90 later... 🤦🏼‍♀️

    we’ve set our budget at $220/week and it’s working ok. sometime we go over but mostly we stick to it. i try and ensure wine comes out of that amount too. i’m not drinking heaps currently as i’m bf, maybe 1-2 glasses a night tops. dh has basically stopped drinking, sometimes i can twist his arm to going bf for a wine but mostly he’s pretty boring these days.

    We spend $200 week. Family of 4- me, DH, DSS (15 and lives with us full-time) and DD (8 and lives with us) plus our 'special needs' cat.

    We buy fruit and vege at a farmer's market and meat/ pantry items at Aldi.
    Our cat is on a vet diet due to indigestion issues so I buy her $40/ month bag of cat food online for $26/month (pet circle for anyone interested) and also her biodegradable cat litter

    DP never checks how much anything costs. And she loves shopping at La Manna.
