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.
Morrisons peri peri rub
Probs about 100 quid for 2 of us on food and drink.
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
About 120 quid for 2 of us. We shop at Waitrose, no scratters allowed.
£170 .....£30 on a good malt whisky
How much are Pot Noodles ?
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
Aye your right I only pick up groceries from there plus there own gin is toppa
Don't buy the gravy so can't comment
Feel like a right pauper reading this thread; I can get by on £20 a week.
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...
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.
Bottle of wine every night man.
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
