I don't think that sounds expensive. Think I need some tips from you because I struggle to get it under 70 per week!

We spend 60 a week so that seems really good. We tend to buy so much fresh stuff each week that I don't see how we can get it any cheaper.

Wish my food shop was that cheap!

We spend over 250 a month on food, although there is 3 of us and hubby has to have Gluten free stuff so that bumps up r food shop

Oh my goodness can I please come shopping with you to learn some tips..... can't get my shopping bill below 60/70 per week, every week!!

Granted though I'm on Slimming World so buy alot of fruit/veg/fresh meat etc which makes me annoyed seeings how I could buy [*@!#%*] for an awful lot cheaper!!

That money I spend doesnt even include 'treats', if I want to treat us to some wine or goodies etc your looking at another 15 quid on top Shocked

God I feel ashamed I spend about 100 a week, but that is for three meals a day for three of us with loads of fruit, think that bumps it up a lot.
I did go aldi for a few months and saved loads but couldnt get everything I needed so had to go asda or morrisons anyway. Xx

We're the same. We try to use Aldi but when doing recipes from books there is always something we can't get.
