Prompted by another thread in which people are horrified by the fact op has spent £200 on food for 4 adults and kids for Xmas day. Made me think honestly how much I've spent.
£40 on a goose and beef
£80 on alcohol
£177 on Asda shop
£100 on m and s 'bits' and flowers.
This is for 4 adults and 2 older children for Xmas day and Boxing Day, hoping to last a few days afterwards on leftovers as well.
That's nearly £400!! That's mad isn't it.
AIBU to ask how much you have spent?

About 200 pounds but that doesn't include the meat as DH is going to get the meat from the butcher tomorrow.

Lilaclily Fri 23-Dec-16 21:07:05

About £80 for a family of four, no alcohol

bigredtractor Fri 23-Dec-16 21:08:59

£120 for everything except meat which is an extra £40 on top so £160. That'll feed 7 (5 adults, 2 kids) for Christmas Eve, Day & Boxing Day

Probably also about £200 for 2 adults and a baby 🙈
TBF there's a lot of non-perishables purchased for a gathering we're having on New years eve, it's not just for 1 day.

£120 for 2 of us and our dogs, including a nice butcher's turkey.

£185 in Aldi

Not much booze bought because I'm pregnant and he doesn't drink much. We're 2 adults and 5 children under 10.

£115 in aldi and £60 in sainsburys, haven't done the booze shop yet, will probably spend another £60-80 on that. It's just the 2 of us for the duration of the festive period.

hoopdeloop Fri 23-Dec-16 21:15:07

We did our 'Christmas shop' and weekly shop at Aldi today and it came to £55 for 2 adults and a toddler

Jaimx86 Fri 23-Dec-16 21:15:13

We spend £££ on an average week for 2 anyway, so think £200 for 4 as mentioned in OP is fine. We're out for lunch on Christmas Day, so haven't done a Christmas Day shop.

lapsedorienteerer Fri 23-Dec-16 21:15:30

ChicRock - £80 for a turkey (oversized chicken) shock

Pomegranatepompom Fri 23-Dec-16 21:15:59

I've done several shops.
Probably around £200 additional to normal weekly shop which is aroundn£150. We like to eat well [fsmile}

Have an extra 5 adults and child for lunch and dinner. Normally 4 of us.
Extras mainly: 2 bottles of Baileys, Amaretto, didn't need to buy champagne as we have loads from previous years, party food for evening & cheese and extra desserts (red velvet cake, chocolate cupcakes, christmas pud, stollen, chocolate fudge cake and trifle!).

Waitrose & M&S

dreamingofLombok Fri 23-Dec-16 21:18:45

About £600 for 8 people to last 5 days. Big bird and alcohol, tons of lunch stuff and all cooked meals fresh from scratch. Does my head in every year!

lokivonpoki Fri 23-Dec-16 21:19:02

£200 yesterday.

For meat and all the trimmings and a shed load of booze- spirits x2
2 cider crates 1 larger crate 4 red wines 2 prosecco and much more blush and I still need to go back tomorrow for more food

LBOCS2 Fri 23-Dec-16 21:21:31

About £350, feeding 6 adults and 3 children for three days. Includes all booze except for a crate of prosecco which my MIL is bringing. Also includes a ham, a goose and a turkey crown.

SharkBastard Fri 23-Dec-16 21:21:39

£70 on farm fresh turkey (got it from the farm)
£160 sainsburys
£83 Waitrose
No alcohol as I'm pregnant and that's for 4 adults and 2 kids

That's for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

We are feeding bil and sil and bil had the fucking audacity to moan that we asked him to pick up 6 foil trays that cost him £12.

Will rip him a new one if he mentions anything else cause we've not asked them for anything other than fucking foil trays

It's gotta be about a grand by now

HemanOrSheRa Fri 23-Dec-16 21:26:12

About the same here OP. I think confused. I spent £180 in Tesco last night. £110 Booths delivery. Ummmm. £80 in Morrisons earlier this week. And other odds and sods over the last couple of weeks. That includes cat and dog food. Meals for in between days and New Year, cleaning stuff, loo roll etc. I won't have to shop for anything other than milk and bread until after New Year.

helensburgh Fri 23-Dec-16 21:27:31

80 tesco delivery and 90 ish morrisons fir fresh stuff.
That's from Tuesday to feed us through till at least next Tues. 2 adults 3 children with an extra 2 adults Xmas day.

MissWillaCather Fri 23-Dec-16 21:29:08

158 Euro on food, for at least three days,just for four though.

Extra on alcohol, maybe 30 Euro on wine as it's cheap here,

I didn't think the £200 was excessive at all for festivities.

Lizzylou Fri 23-Dec-16 21:30:15

We are going to SIL's Christmas day (but hosting a few family members Boxing day) and I have spent way more than £300 already and forgotten loads.
My DB and his family are coming NYE, not catered for that yet.
We can afford it and are pushed for time so can't shop around etc.
