How much do you spend on food?

I get all my cleaning stuff, dry goods, tins, frozen etc from the supermarket, not really sure where else I could get them from. So might as well get fruit and veg from there too - I don't think there's such a thing as a greengrocers round here. Get meat from there too if its any good, butchers or the freezing works own butchers shop occasionally.
Mrs KP works for a processor so the freezer is often full of cheap chips and veg that got clipped by a forky(y)

And you have never once on here whinged about the cartel, so entirely consistent.

It is those who moan about the impact of consolidation in the food chain, yet support that consolidation daily with how they spend their money, I can't get my head round.

Folks keep saying "what about cleaning products ?". I will be calling at our local farm shop in a bit, dishwasher tablets will be in my basket.

Is it a farm shop, or a shop on a farm? How can a genuine farm shop sell dishwasher tablets?
 
I know a middle aged bachelor farmers who eats out 21 times a week as apparently if you count in the depreciation of plates, pans, the kitchen and associated running costs with gas, electric and fairy liquid, he is better of just eating out all the time.

In some ways he is right as a local pizza place does Monday night madness were you get a BOGOF 12" pizza with three toppings for £9.99. He eats one on Monday night and the other on Tuesday so effectively it's £4.995 per evening meal, he couldn't cook it for that there.

He eats breakfast and lunch at the marts or at the local cafe and is known to go to couple steak nights at restaurants and takes the other portion home in a doggie bag.

I remember asking him why he didn't stick a lame bullock in the freezer as was told that by the time he bought 2 chest freezers and the running costs of £100 each per year and include all associated cooking costs that any potential gain was already gone.

He does enjoy the social aspect of the cafes as he wouldn't chat to many people during the day.

Is is right in that it's probably the same money to cook for 2 than it is to cook for a single person.
I think his diet would be very unhealthy

Shop for 5: £70 - £100/week split between Morrisons and Sainsbury, with another £30+ at the local butcher, and typically another £20 spent on a midweek shop at local Co-op for veg etc. Usually 18 pints from the milkman, but 19yo is away for a bit so down to 12.
Trip to Costco twice a year for long storage basics and cleaning products.
Take away once a week, eat out maybe once a month.

Haven't shopped in Tesco for 3 years since the "Daddy, I don't want to eat meat" advert (money grubbing gits) and don't have any intention of heading back to ASDA for a while.
