I'm making a real effort to reduce my spending atm, last year I was easily spending £100 per week, now it's more like £70.

4 of us me/dh (ds age 5 dd age 2)

I shop online @ sainsburys, get free delivery. try to stick to a very strict list but still struggle to keep it under £120 pw .. that includes dd nappies (current attempts at potty training failing) all toiletries and cleaning stuff

Very occasionally i manage under £100 .. but usually i keep the freezer stocked up on BOGOF's and extra bread (i am a marketers dream....

I used to spend about £100 Now I menu plan and we all eat the same (ish) food together I've got it down to about £70... life is so much easier now...
Do you do a weekly menu and shopping list...

about £70 per week more if we feel rich and buy some treats

2 Adults and 3 Children...£60-65 a week
(Lidls is my saviour)
If I had more money I would shop at a supermarket which had proper child seats on their trolleys, and helped you pack your bags....but as it is I battle with a 19mnth who constantly stands up on the seat, and packing my bags in the rain by the car....but save quite a bit each week!

3 of us at about £70 per week. Does not include nappies or all of our milk supply - buy biodegradeable nappies at great cost in attempt to be worthy (used reusables until a few months ago cos DS (2) was leaking all over the place) and DS drinks about a gallon of milk a week.

although it varies cos this week I only spent about £30 but our cupboards are a bit old mother hubbardy

2 adults plus 3 kids = £120 ish shopping a week, but am bit of food snob (organic local meat and veg/fruit). the food i put into the kids esp is very important to me and makes a vast difference to their behaviour ( e numbers and additives= hyper nasty kids eugggh)

wow, what variations in costs! i spend at least £120.00 a week and still run out of milk, veg, and salad stuff

milkybarsrus Sun 25-Feb-07 22:18:32

where do you get most of your shopping from?

milkybarsrus Sun 25-Feb-07 22:20:04

o drumum, no guilty as charged!no shopping list or meal plans. i'm sure that would help.

Surfermum Sun 25-Feb-07 22:25:46
