I'm spending a year dead for tax reasons.

Just for yourself, not counting any dependants or relatives or anything, out of curiosity?

I recently find myself in a situation where I am trying to be very frugal, but I am able to get through the week fairly comfortably, albiet on cheap meals, cut-priced yogurts, and things like that, for around £12.

I could probably do it cheaper if I wanted to be a proper maniac, but I am surprised at just how much I have been wasting by getting more expensive ingredients rather than lower-cost ones, or cheaper brands over bigger name ones.

£20-30 for four of us, so £5-7.50. But there are efficiencies of scale at play there.

For one day I'd say about 3-4-5 euro's so for a whole week I'd think around 25+ euro's or so. Total supermarket bill perhaps 30 euro's per week. Hmmm that souds a bit high, might very well me less. A lower estimate would be 20 euro's a week. I may check my bankaccount tomorrow and do some calculations. 

Could be less if I ate less meat. I usually buy a packaged of meat which say 2 schnitzels. 400-500 grams of minced meat or 4-5 sausages and eat them all during one dinner.

I don't really know, don't keep track of it. I'd say a little more than 100 Euros per week for 3. So maybe 40 Euros for me. A big part of that is restaurant or delivery food.
