Many Brits will be looking for ways to save money on grocery shopping, which is one of the biggest household expenses along with energy bills. The average British family spends over £470 a year on trashed food – money that could be put to better use elsewhere.
Natalia suggested, “Make a meal plan at the start of the week and stick to it.
“A lot of people buy whatever they want from the supermarket and inevitably end up wasting a lot of food because they haven’t thought about how they will use the ingredients they bought.
“If you stick to a plan, you’ll only buy what you need and spend less.”
Plus, people can search for a dining club near them and save up to £65 a month.
A woman from Bristol also told Express.co.uk how she is saving big by taking savvy savings advice.
Elaine Wishart said: ‘I joined a food club – it’s not a food bank.
“It’s open to all and you pay £3.50 a week and that’s what the supermarkets are about to throw away.
“They bring it to a food club and you can choose what you want from different stations.
“I think every week I get around £20-25 worth of stuff for £3.50 and you never know what you’re getting.”
