      How much do you spend on food shopping every week? I have 3 kids 6, 4 and 3. I’m just doing my budget and I’m interested to know what others spend. Most are still in nappies at night or day. Some weeks, especially over Christmas I spend $300 because I like yummy food too. I’ll probably need to cut down now though so just curious. Thanks

      I also like yummy food! My grocery bill averages out to $160 a week with two young teens.

      I never spend more than $100 per week with two kids. Since is since shopping online as I can see what I’m spending and remove items of the cart if the price goes over. Its actually saved me so much money.

      1 adult, 2 kids, 1 dog, 1 cat. Around $130-$160. The bulk of that being fresh fruit and veg.

      Wow I’ve been way overspending then. Fruit and veg and nappies and wipes are expensive but I love chocolate so I buy way too much of this. The kids devour strawberries so they can be expensive at some times of the year. Thanks.

      There are a couple of articles here that help with lowering the price of grocery shopping, one is for online shopping, which I agree can be significantly cheaper. Hope they help.

      My friend recommended this book (Parenting Toddlers: How You Can Use Positive Discipline to Raise Kids Who Will Have High Self-Esteem, Including Tips for Sleep Training, Handing Tantrums and a Guide to Potty Training) and it’s honestly been a huge game changer for me, it’s been so helpful in so many different aspects of parenting!
