I shop at Aldi too. Did my weeks shopping yesterday, (2 adults 1 toddler) and it was about £37. It's rare I spend over £50, that's what I budget for.
My last 3 shops have been around the £40-£45.

3 people, $200/week in Canada (at least, probably more). It's getting more and more expensive!

Around £40 for me, DH and Ds (2). I am lucky in that my MiL is gardening obsessed and grows a ton of broad beans, tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, courgettes, potatoes, blueberries, apples, plums and the like which my freezer and pantry is stuffed with in various forms.

About £150 for 2 adults, 2 big kids and 2 little ones. I vary where I shop. Sometimes it's way more than that.

Around £85, 2 adults, 1 preschooler and 1 baby. Waitrose for basics including nappies, M&S for meat and local shops for fish, fruit & veg.

Up to £30 on food. We do a monthly shop for other items (bathroom stuff/ tinfoil etc). Plus will spend up to a tenner in week for extras.

Actual grocery shopping about £35 but add in school dinner, commuting coffee, lunches, school dinners, one takeaway night, one booze night out and evening wine and it's more like £130 a week - this is for 2 adults & 2 primary age dcs.

180$/week for three adults, east coast of Canada
Groceries here have gone up about 30% over the last ten years, but wages have not

About £65 per week. 2 adults and one toddler. We go to Tesco one week (spend about £80, and lidl the next week (only spend £50). We mostly eat veggie food, and because I batch cook we have a full freezer (which I really should use up). We all take packed lunches to work and dh and I take our own tea/coffee for the commute in a travel mug.

Juanbablo Mon 25-Sep-17 15:54:37

Around £80 in Aldi for 2 adults, 3dcs.

Lazybobcat Mon 25-Sep-17 15:57:44

Used to spend £120 a week for two adults and toddler ds, now we shop around and meal plan we spend £60 a week.

Justgivemesomepeace Mon 25-Sep-17 15:59:52

£100 2 adults a teen and a 4yr old. I go to Morrisons but need to try aldi but it's 20 mins away as opposed to 3!

hidinginthenightgarden Mon 25-Sep-17 16:03:25

£80, shop at Sainsburys (£18 off voucher) for most things but go to Aldi for snacks occasionally and B&M for tinned foods. We are 2 adults, 2 under 5.

rightnowimpissed Mon 25-Sep-17 16:08:05

Wow, we probably should try and cut our shopping bill, around £250 a week for 3 adults and five kids who take packed lunches to school. We don't have Aldi though and the Lidl is not great when we go so it's mostly, Tesco and Sainsbury's shopping.

Notso Mon 25-Sep-17 16:33:24

Between £100 and £140 a week for two adults, two teens and two primary DC, includes food, night nappy for one DC, cleaning products and toiletries. Doesn't really include alcohol (a bottle of wine twice a year maybe or a bottle of ale for a casserole) coffees out, lunch for DD and DH or school dinners for DC3.
Don't think I could get much cheaper without compromising on quality or having to buy stuff with nut traces for allergic DC.
Have tried switching down brands, buying cheaper meat and shopping at Aldi/Lidl but none of it worked for us. Buying in bulk from the butchers/Costco/Amazon does works well.

HolidayTimeAgain Mon 25-Sep-17 17:08:52

Family of 2 adults and 2 children (12 &10). We spend on avarage £70 a week, that includes all cleaning and laundry products as well as toiletries. DD and DH take a packed lunch everyday and I eat at home. We eat meat most meals but in small quantiies bulked out with veg. I tend to batch cook from scratch and rarely by ready meals or pre prepared veg etc and try to use things in season. The bulk of my shopping is from Lidl or Aldi (both are close so I tend to alternate) I only use the larger supermarkets for things I can't get or if I spot a good offer!

£45-£50, 2 adults, 2 kids, one of which is a fridge hoovering teenager.

Doesntfitthemould Mon 25-Sep-17 17:16:43

It was about £200 a week but I have now cut that in half mainly buy shopping online and not picking up a load of rubbish we don't need.
At least £30 a week on alcohol confused

squishysquirmy Mon 25-Sep-17 17:19:02

Two adults one toddler. Varies, but average about £40, and I try to keep it beneath £50 each week. Just spent almost £70 in LIDL today though! shock but I needed to stock up, I was tempted by a load of interesting veggies, and bought some non-food items (including some new wellies for dd which I am v, pleased with).

Moanyoldcow Mon 25-Sep-17 17:20:19

I am horrified by how much I'm spending blush

£150 - £170 a week - 2 adults and 1 Child (4yrs).

That includes cleaning products and other non food bits and bobs.

We shop at Sainsbury's - think I'll have to switch to Lidl for some of it...
