    Good Evening,

    How much do you spend on food per person in your household?

    Grocery Budget
    HI All

    do you have a set weekly/monthly food budget or just try to keep as low as possible? i see myself as a good shopper, shop around try brands buy reduced etc but do feel there is room for improvement (wanting to save for mortgage deposit)

    we are family of 2 adults, 1 15month old and an 11 year old every weekend.

    Think i shall start by adding up my recent spends and see what i am actually spending - anyone care to share their family size/weekly spends?

    I budget 80 a month, which is for myself & sometimes my daughter, though she tends to sort her n her boyfriend their own stuff, though I buy the cleaning stuff, etc. Tend to come in something under that though, 60 sometimes and this month I am at 32(ish) - its on my signature. I am part of the grocery challenge most months, its here for anyone interested in taking part, you just say your amount and report back spends (if you want to). They have a massive recipe list also at beginning of challenge.

    Anywhere between 20 & 30 in total per week for 22 & 23 y/o adults, depending on how many top-up shops we fall prey to and how much wine we fancy ...
