I have to plan my food shop- not to the last penny- but i do plan for a week at a time and try and use up what is sitting in the cupboard.
This week my shopping bill came to £18- and that included my husbands lunches / snacks.
Thing is soon i will have to be even stricter on our bill- i don’t know how, as already my trolley is full of Tesco’s ‘everyday value’ items.
However I do follow a fantastic blog .agirlcalledjack.com where is has had it rough (selling everything and moving into a shared house), and shares her recipes with those on a budget. The blog has helped me get over my fear of chickpeas and lentils and is a helping hand in this struggling time.
