Also I find if I have to go to the supermarket if I forget something it always ends up being an expensive week.
I plan all our meals in advance, so usually just buy what we need, also we take lunches everyday, usually frozen homemade meals or leftovers.
I think we eat pretty well, and at the moment I am trying to make a couple of new dishes a week.

For our dogs and cat we spend about $50 a fortnight - thats for food, kitty litter and treats, but they also get lots of our leftovers from us as well.

I know we could cut down, but we like eating nice food.

I doubt we could cut back if we tried - we eat almost only fresh food (fresh fruit & veg, meat - nothing packaged)... We probably only eat rice or pasta once a week, otherwise meals are mainly veg with some meat, chicken or fish.
For those who spend less, may I ask what kind of meals you cook? Fresh ingredients, or more frozen/packaged stuff? (Not that that's a bad thing, I heard frozen veg are just as good.)

I think im fairly sensible and always shop from a list and will by no frills where i can, but i just cant get it down. I spend about $30-40 at the fruit and veg and then the rest at woolies. Only by toiletries and cleaning products about once every three weeks or a month.
If anyone can give me some tips id greatly appreciate it!!

Just ask Rhiannon, I am the worst supermarket shopper. I throw everything into the trolley

Ours has come down since Michael hasn't been coming with us.
Imogen has become quite the helper on a Thursday night - reaching for the fresh fruit & vegies from the stands and putting them into bags is her favourite

My cousin swears to me that she spends $160 / fortnight for 2 people. I don't know how anyone could possibly do that!!!!!!
