Thread: How Much Do You Spend on Groceries?

  1. #31

    I usually spend up to $20-$30 per week on groceries for myself. My partner buys a lot of his own groceries as well and we share, so it's never really an exact figure. That said, we usually have one McDonald's night per week so that's an additional $5 for me and $9 for him.

    Warwick Road. It's in the shopping complex with woolies, the warehouse and the Yamanto Tavern (Otherwise known as the Y bar - awesome food there too )

    There's also d ick smith, priceline pharmacy and store, a little cafe (again great food, although avoid the sandwiches ) and I think a travel store plus a couple of other stores. There's also a great little clothing store called Lilee fashion, they sell some really stunning dresses and things

    Am I over spending?
    I think you are doing pretty good for a household of 4 & a 1/2.

    I mostly buy fresh stuff every few days from roadside stalls, quite cheap.

    The biggest expence I have for grocery type food is bread and milk, I cant believe how expensive milk has become! I once said if milk gets to a stupid price then I will either buy a milking cow or simply have to leave the country and move to the hills of Butan and buy me a Yak or two, or something like that. Could be sooner than I think!

    I'm only me and the dog, so I don't spend much at all, I hate wastage too.

    Mum used to say there are starving sparrows in ethiopia who could do with my leftovers, she never gave me an address to send it on though., so I had to make sure my eyeballs wern't bigger than my stomach at all times.

    I'm just wondering - how come all the ladies do the cooking, shopping, feeding while the men keep cutting off credit cards and complaining?
    Have we really not moved past the 'get back in the kitchen woman and make me a sandwich' days? I have to ask... why don't you ladies ask the men to cook, shop or feed?

    Masha, I think it really depends on how your raised or what suits you and your partner.

    He works outside, so I work inside.

    While the kids are young I look after them at home full time. When they are in school I will go back to work then the household things will be evened out more, I will still do the bulk of it because thats just the person I am.

    I am not chained to the kitchen barefoot and naked either, It is my choice to be a stay at home mum.
