Sorry, full of random questions but it's nice to see what other people do

How much do you spend on your food shopping? And do you often eat takeaways etc?
Prices just seem to rise and rise!

We spend about 80 or 90 pound a week on food shopping including all the baby things etc etc.....
I seem to eat takeaways quite a lot I love dominos pizza and fish and chips which we have every friday this makes me sound so fat but I actually suffer from an eating disorder and need to gain weight so won't do me any harm lol Smile xx

Blimey I really wish I could spend a lot less, we spend about £100-120 a week on the food shop, and that does not include anything special, very very few named brands, no wine or spirts,and no extras, that is literally just the standard food shop plus a pack of nappies

We spend on average £50-£55 a week (asda) , thats for 2 adults and a 12 yr old. I normally pop to tesco inbetween just to stock up on some little bits like bread and I do toiletry shopping completely seperate as I find wilkos is cheaper for that stuff.

We used to spend up to £140 a week Shocked but i managed to cut it down to about £80 or £90 on average. Ido online shopping now which makes it so much easier to see what you're spending.
As for takeaways, we usually have 2 a week, one chinese, one indian but we only spend about £15 on each of those (i dont buy the boys takeaway food) so i dont think thats too bad.

I do an online shop once a month of around £120 then we top up each week with food / takeaways which prob come to £50 a week, but that includes all things for the kids (nappies, milk, clothes etc).
I am a lazy shopper and I as I don't so the cooking I have to take OH with me who hates busy dwaddling shoppers so we grab what we can quickly and leg it out. Now I am on maternity I will be able to spend time being a dwaddling shopper myself! lol!

I usually do an online shop at asda or go to aldi each week as dh gets paid weekly. Usually around the £50/60 week mark. This includes everything all deodrants, shower gel etc etc and about once a month a couple of plug in refills and washing powder/softer. This also includes the 2/3 jars a week of chocolate spread my step son goes through lol.

Occasionally i have to grab an extra milk or bread a week another £2/£3 & we very rarely have take aways. If we do its down fish and chips !
