Probably $200-$220. I could go cheaper but I have a big focus on health and cooking from scratch (my hobby) so I tend to buy good quality ingredients, fresh fruit & veg etc. And sometimes things like cereal with less sugar cost more than the home brand with more sugar, although often they are much the same. You have to check the label and if they are the same I would buy the homebrand.
My big tip is to get a freezer if you dont have one, its an upfront cost of about $500 but we have saved so much money by buying up when things are on special, or buying in bulk and breaking up into portions to freeze.
I used to focus on budget and had the groceries at $120-$150 one week, and $100 the following week.
We're now more concerned about healthy eating and have come to realise we have to let the budget go a bit for this and it's now up to $250 a week. Although that's tight. It really needs to be around $300.
2 adults, kids - 6, 3 & 10 months.
Our dinners for the week would include along the lines of bolognese, sausages and veg, steak and veg, chicken tonight, chicken Schnitz and veg, tuna pasta bake, ravioli, chicken tonight & rice...
Lunches for kids were typically a sandwich, fruit and veg, and egg and yoghurt. For me I just had a sandwich.
Breakfast was just toast or weetbix.
We were reasonably healthy. Still had a FAIRLY balanced diet. We just knew we could be healthier. Now choosing the healthiEST options we're the same as you, it's pretty impossible to keep it under $250.
Between $300-$350 a week, depending on what we’ve run out of. I cook nearly every meal and I fix a lot of different recipes. My kids eat quite a bit of fruit. My youngest has some dietary needs that adds to the cost as well. We have Aldi here but I truly not fond of it.
Between $200 and $300 for two adults, two teens, two large dogs, two cats and two guinea pigs. Husband takes an esky of sandwiches and snacks every day, kids are always eating and pets are partly raw fed. I cook 7 nights a week and we eat a lot of meat which adds up.
We spend $80 a week on groceries, including meat, veg, fruit etc. 2 adults 2 kids (no nappies or formula) we eat well, roasts, shanks etc. I'm just a major tight a*s haha
$300+ each week 2 adults and 2 kids (1 childcare with food supplied, 1 prep). It's something I want to get better control over.
2 adults + 3 kids - 2 school aged and one daycare and in nappies... $250 / fortnight plus up to $50 for top ups (bread, milk, more fresh fruit/veges).
2 adults and 5 kids aged ( 3,4,6,7,10,11) we spend $400 a week
Baby brain cause I am pregant with twins and due in 12 weeks
2 adults, 3 kids and a big dog, we spend about $200 on our weekly grocery shop, then another $50 or so on top ups of bread/ milk/ things we run out of throughout the week
Ours is around $160 a week for 2 adults, a 3 year old and a 6 month old. That covers everything including nappies/wipes and household things. We don't have an Aldi either, only Woolworths, Coles or IGA.
