I spend between 20 - 40 pounds per week for two of us. However I don't normally buy ready made food, just lots of veg, meat, eggs, cheese etc, and make my own stuff. If I had more money I prolly would spend more though.

On the other hand you might not spend more because neither you nor cheebus is a massive fatty.

I'd buy better quality stuffs and spend a small fortune in the deli if I had more disposable cash. I would also do more posh cooking as I would be able to afford the ingredients.

Talking abount the price of shopping, costs have gone right up here. I nearly fell over at the price of eggs earlier. Normally 94p and are now 1.40. Big pile of shite. :(

Jesus snowultra either you have a large family or that must include the cook.

It's about 50 a week for two for us, and I tend to buy what I want. I write a list of meals and then write down the ingredients and just buy those. Apart from the basic stock which I top up as it gets low (rice, tins, pasta etc). I don't buy snacks or processed stuff so that keeps the cost down.

As little as possible, I always go at a time when they are downpricing the nearly out-of-date goods, can cut my bills in half that can.

Probably loads of dough, like. I can't tell.

She does the shopping. We're all fed, so I don't care.

She's pretty nifty when it comes to the shopping. So she says.

I'm not dead yet so that's a good sign.

We have tried to budget but still end up with a weekly bill of around 70-80.

However this does include nappies and toddler-fare :ermm:

I wish I could get it down to 50, but so far no luck :(

We seem to do better if I go shopping rather than Mrs B. though :eyebrows:

:unsure: I have no idea - probably more than I would like to spend. The tally in Tesco always gives me a fright.

I tend to avoid shopping with the sprog as she lobs all sorts of essentials into the trolley like "iced diamonds" and fancy ice creams :fear:
