I would say 50 per person per week just for food would be more than enough, although probably best to avoid buying UK brands, if you buy the local brands and fresh produce you can't go far wrong. Meat and chicken is quite expensive but, again, if you do as the locals and eat more veg than meat then you should find 50 per person ok. I always go for the cheapest cleaning products, washing powders, etc etc, and stock up with the bog-ofs (buy one get one free) take advantage of special offers, and be prepared to try different brands.

Depends on how much you drink (alcohol) or if you smoke...these have a nasty way of creeping up on you. Otherwise 50quid a week per person should be plenty to live on.
