    I spent about $350 today for the week, and maybe then some. E.g. I got a month of laundry detergent.

    That's for 3 adults, 3 kids (10, 6 - nappies overnight NDIS won't fund them, VERY Fussy eater, 2 -fulltime nappies, 2 dogs and 1 cat.)

    There wasn't a lot of meat as I'm going to the wholesale Butcher tomorrow and will likely spend upwards of $300. BUT. I'm buying in bulk which I'll save on future shops. By topping up with other things I get elsewhere it'll last a while!

    Between 300-350 a week for 2 A and 5 kids.
    This includes toiletries, one in nappies-toilet training atm so less nappies used. .
    Usually, ILs will do dinner once a week with leftovers for next day lunch and they give us homegrown lettuce, silverbeet when in season..
    I buy fruit and veg in season, cook all meals, bake a lot (I enjoy it), we eat meat but enjoy vegetarian meals too.

    Usually $200-$230 per week for 2 adults 1 child.

    We rarely have takeaway because almost no one delivers to our estate , so I do tend to keep our food supplies well stocked. No supermarkets/corner stores close by either.

    It averages out to about $180 a week, two adults, three kids, one cat and one dog. One in full-time nappies.

    We are vegetarian, have chickens and ducks for eggs and grow a fair bit of our veg.

    Ours has gone up a bit during lockdown as I’ve gone back to mostly organic fruit and veggies, grass fed /free range meat and non farmed seafood (salmon approx $80 a kilo🤪) we don’t do takeaway (we would normally go out to eat but obviously can’t now!) This week I spent $167 on seafood, $150 on chicken and lamb , $100 on fruit snd veg and an online woolies order for basic grocery $125 then maybe $20 a week at the local bakery on bread - that gives us breakfast, lunch and dinner and snacks for a week so approx $550 for 3 of us (DS eats like an adult!) I’m lucky avocados are only $2 each now as we go through 2 a day!

    Around $250 a week on groceries for one adult, two kids, two cats and three bunnies. I do a big shop once a fortnight for meat, pantry/cleaning/toiletries/kitty essentials. Then I do too ups every couple of days for additional fruit/veg/fresh greens for the fussy buns. I suspect without the furry friends my bill would be almost half.. but the kitties don't do cheap stuff so it's a good $8-12 a day just in tins/sachets and that's before biscuits, litter and treats
