Firstly, this post is VERY VERY late! I had it drafted but it turns out I forgot about it completely for more than a month. I’m going to reiterate, once again, that we didn’t run this challenge in October because we can’t afford food. We are fortunate that money isn’t tight these days. However, despite this I think that it is good to have an overhaul from time to time. Having a month where I really had to think about saving money, and cutting back, sees us in good stead for the months ahead. Anyway, here are =my £100 grocery challenge results!
I was gifted a voucher by Approved Food to allow me to place my order and create this post. If you’re a regular reader of mine you probably like to make money and maybe even save money too. Just because you’re earning a nice amount of money online, thanks to my favourite websites, doesn’t mean that you need to overspend when it comes to groceries. I’ve wrote a post before on ways to avoid overspending on groceries and Approved Food is a fantastic way to make savings – *up to 70% on selected items!
Did you know that it is possible to receive cash back on your in-store grocery shop? There are shopping apps that will reimburse you in full when you buy selected groceries. Best of all these shopping apps are completely free to use! Shopmium is one such shopping app and it is a fantastic way for you to earn some extra cash just for completing your food shopping. I have personally written about ways to earn money on your food shopping before. I have written about CheckOutSmart before.
There are a vast array of ways that you can save money on your food shopping. Today I am going to share some of my favourite tips with you.
Keep a well stocked store cupboard
This has to be one of my favourite ways to save money on your food shopping. I have a number of staple items that I try to always keep in stock. I keep items for cake making, bread baking and cooking fast meals. For example I always have pasta, or pasta flour, in stock so I can make a quick pasta meal. I have a *pasta maker which allows me to make fresh pasta almost as fast as it takes to cook dry pasta.
