I started a new job last week and with the now weekly pay packet (I'm contracting) I thought it would be a great time to put together a new household budget, plus we need to start some joint saving goals etc.
Most of our bills are fixed amounts but as you all probably know its the grocery spend that can throw things out. Some weeks we spend a hideous amount and some weeks we can hardly spend anything.
So here I am to pick your thoughts and see what you think is a reasonable amount for a DINKY (double income no kids yet) household to spend on groceries each week in suburban Australia.
This does not include eating out (that's a separate part of the budget)....and please bear in mind I'm not very good at the two minute noodle thing. I am thinking that $100 a week should see us through - our pantry is pretty well stocked!
Please share your thoughts...is $100 excessive or not enough? Also welcome are any penny saving ideas!!
