Fortnightly Grocery Shop

For the next 2.5-3 weeks we are house sitting for my BIL and his wife while they are in Europe.
That means that our fortnightly grocery shop has to cover all meals for our little family (at home, with my in-laws, we only cater for 5 dinners a fortnight and all breakfasts and lunches for our little family).

We do all our grocery shopping at Pak 'n' Save with the occasional throw in of Mad Butcher or the local fruit and vegetable shop if they have good specials.

Below is our shop for this fortnight, I have included a price breakdown for you so you can see what the prices are like in this area.

NB: As we are on the North Shore house sitting, this shop we shopped at Pak 'n' Save Albany.

Our fortnightly budget is $200 for all grocery items, household items and toiletries. Anything left over at the end of the fortnight gets rolled into the next fortnight, if needed, otherwise is kept in our grocery account for future use. If I come under budget (most fortnights) I will pop $20 onto our Christmas Club card to use over the Christmas holidays.
