My shopping is kind of all over the place, mainly because I am trying to avoid what we call here "The Big Two" which are our two major supermarkets which are everywhere and are currently having "price wars" and dropping prices ridiculously low, which sounds wonderful, however farmers are going out to business because instead of dropping the prices by cutting their profit margin, they are cutting what they pay farmers, who are going bankrupt because of it. It is absolutely disgusting.

So, because I now refuse to support either one of the two:

I get Aussie Farmers Direct delivered twice a week, most of the cost of that goes to the farmers, and some to the "milkos" that deliver it of course. On Wednesday I get a fruit and veg delivery and on thursday I get "grocery" which is meat, dairy, bread, pasta, eggs, cereals, juices and nuts and seeds. All fresh and locally sourced.

I do a big "things that aren't food and longlife items" shop once every three months at an independent supermarket near us.

Every now and then I will do a bulk buy of meat from a bulk butcher about half hour drive from our house and freeze it.




I don't really have a set budget, I can't as I don't go on routine shopping trips, but as low as I can get it is what I like.

Dh or I go close to bi-weekly, sometimes every three weeks if we just can't find the time/energy but then we end up like tonight eating waffles for dinner. DH will do a short trip for produce usually once a week though.
