DESPITE our best efforts to only go to the supermarket once a week, our families always get through multipacks of crisps and biscuits at lightning speed.
Sound familiar? Well spare a thought for pregnant mum-of-eight Jamerrill Stewart, 40, who has to keep the cupboards stocked with HUNDREDS of treats every month.
Sharing her family's epic food shop on her YouTube channel, the soon-to-be mum-of-10 revealed that the grocery haul cost $261 [£190] in total.
Talking her 275,000 subscribers through the haul, Jamerril explained how she spent $38 [£27] on 29 tins of canned pumpkin as she's making triple batches of a cake recipe every week.
In order to keep costs as low as possible, the mum pre-orders a shop from Walmart and then supplements this with bargain buys from Smart Shopper.
This week, Jamerill was thrilled that Smart Shopper still had offers on Naked smoothies and she picked up four boxes of 12.

Urging fans to stock up while they can, the mum said: "I know it's not always going to be there.
"There was a time when they always, every week, had tons of boxes of Go-GURTS every week.
"They get in these seasons when they have different deals and I'm telling you, at any moment, it could end."
Each box was reduced to just $2.50 [£1.80] – meaning Jamerill bagged 48 smoothies for the bargain price of $10 [£7.25].
On top of this, she also bought 6lbs of strawberry yoghurt as it was also reduced 99c [70p] in Walmart.
Chatting about the 2lbs tubs, she continued: "I'm going to do smoothies the next few days and the kids are really excited about it.
"And I thought perfect, we'll just use this Greek yoghurt!"
And to keep the family going in between meals, Jamerill bought a whopping EIGHT packs of Nature Valley granola bars – containing 120 bars – for $24 [£18].
Summarising the shop, she said: "The shop behind me came in at $261.
"This is for the next four weeks or so. I do plan to so more gentle freezer cooking here on YouTube but it could all fall apart!"
In December, Jamerril prepared 40 huge freezer meals for her family before her baby is born arrives.
In an 80 minute YouTube video, Jamerill started by cracking a whopping 132 eggs into an enormous metal bowl to bulk-freeze some scrambles eggs.
