How much do you spend on shopping per week?

  2. No idea, as I don't actually do a weekly shop. Just get stuff when I need stuff. And I have no desire whatsoever to know.

    It's like any own brand stuff, bit hit & miss.
    Their bog roll is woeful for example. Stuff they sell in Farmfoods/Home Bargains is far better, and same price

    Have them stick a notepad on the bin and add up how much money they are throwing out in food

    Would love to see a breakdown from those that spend less than £50 a week and especially the person who quoted £50 a month! For that I struggle to see your 3 meals a day unless you survive on root veg

    Feel like a right pauper reading this thread; I can get by on £20 a week.
  13. easy do under £50 a week and that is doing Tesco.. not your discounters.

    wouldn't be extravagant living but certainly sustainable.

    When I lived on me own, I was only spending about £80 p/m on food. It's now about £200, mainly cos owa lass buys loads of ice cream & crisps
    But you'd be surprised how little you can live on, if you eat very basic. Bowl of Porridge is only about 10p. Pasta & rice are also dirt cheap

    Well last week I spent 30 quid in tesco, I spent another 10 in Morrison's but only because I had vouchers to use up so I wouldn't have normally needed to. I've spent £53 in tesco today, just because I got a £6 off when you spend £40 I could have just bought fresh stuff but I've bought extra and filled the cupboards purely because I've got £6 of stuff "for free", part of that included mothers day cards and a box of chocs for me mam

    I got a meat delivery from muscle food last pay day (3 March) and I've still got a fair bit left, plus all the meals that have been frozen. So next week I'll probably only need to spend £10-15 on bread, milk, fresh fruit and veg.

    There is only me and the bairn, but he's 12 and eats as much as an adult! So it is quite a lot still, but that includes both our baits so that's saving 20 a week.

    Toiletries and household I get from work so get a canny discount on them. I'm bad for getting stuff as I need it so I'm going to start once a promo doing a shop on what's on offer.

    Also have a purse full of loyalty cards and use the vouchers most are rubbish but sometimes are useful

    £30-40 for the two of us, not including beer/takeaways/some toiletries but including scran for work. Just burnt tomorrow's bait though while distracted on here... :rolleyes:

    How? Honestly I grow most of my own fruit and veg and still get through about 70 Euro..mind there is a bottle of wine every night.
    But what would your meals be exactly? Be really interested to know.

    I used to flat share with a mate, he organised meals in advance and cooked etc, one monthly shop of about £90 got the gear we needed between us. It's doable if you're savvy.

    When I was on the Dole did a big shop 80 quid once a month, and about £10 a week on milk bread and fruit and salad things. I seriously don't get how people afford to smoke, drink, have iPhones and sky cos I was on the bones of life
