Mum-of-16 shows off huge weekly shop including 6 3L bottles of milk, 5 large boxes of cereal & scores of choccie biccies


A MUM-of-16 has shown off her huge weekly grocery haul which includes 36 litres of milk, five large boxes of cereal & scores of choccie biccies.

Jeni Bonell is mum of one of Australia’s biggest families, and previously revealed she often spends the equivalent to £232 on groceries a week to feed her super-sized brood.

Jeni – whose kids are aged between 29 and four – has given her 25.6k  YouTube subscribers a peak inside her weekly shopping trolley.

And while the weekly shop often consists of similar items, the trip was different this time around has her husband Ray tagged along.

In the video, Jeni revealed that she often does the shopping alone as Ray implements the ‘$4 rule’ to keep the costs down.

In the 17 minute clip, Jeni said: “I’m taking hubby on a grocery haul. He doesn’t normally come on grocery shops with me because we used to have what we call the $4 rule and if the item was more that $4 we weren’t buying it.”

To avoid spending a fortune every week, Jeni said that she’ll always look for ticketed items, but compares the ‘per gram’ price to get the best deals.

And with good reason as the family often go through 36 litres of milk in any one week – but buys half that each time – as well as 72 eggs, and 30 chicken drumsticks on average.

The mum from Queensland said she doesn’t always buy so many snacks, but when she sees them on sale she’ll often stock up.

The clip revealed scores of of crisps, crackers, doughnuts, nuts, cakes and a range of chocolate biscuits, and said she thinks it’s ‘perfectly fine’ to rely on ‘convenient’ foods as she has so many mouths to feed.

Despite spending a whopping $692.99 (£380) stocking up on fridge and pantry items, Jeni revealed they saved a total of $71.30 (£39) just by choosing discounted products.

Jeni and Ray have 16 kids including Jesse, Brooke, Claire, Natalie, Karl, Samuel, Cameron, Sabrina, Tim, Brandon, Eve, Nate, Rachel, Eric, Damian and Katelyn.

We previously shared how the supermum-of-16 was forced to stick sign saying she’s ‘not hoarding’ on her supermarket trolley after people shame her.

And she also started Christmas shopping in July and gets gifts on credit to make sure she can afford them all.

Meanwhile, a mum feeds family-of-four for £1.50 each a day and shares her monthly meal plan so you can too.
