We've got it down to around £60 a week, and that includes nappies and toiletries too. Geoff cooks everything from scratch, so it all works out much cheaper and lasts a lot longer. :D

We have managed to get our budget to 35 pounds a week for two adults and two children.Its a lot of smart price and value but we cant really tell the difference. I bulk buy nappies and wipes whenever they are on offer and erin is now on full fat milk.Fresh fruit and veg from the farmers market and only have meat or chicken two or three times a week.It surprised me how much we wasted but i have a meal plan and i stick to it.
