Re: family of 3 weekly supermarket cost QLD

I use cloth nappies, and wipes, which helps, but I still spend between $250 and $300 a week. That is for 2 adults and two kids, and a cat.

Re: Floods - and insurance

Re: What do you miss?

I have got HP sauce in a squeezy bottle in my fridge. I guess it is from Coles.
