Save Money On Food

Hey folks, happy Monday!

I know we’re right in the middle of the Eat Out To Help Out scheme, but apart from this, what are your favourite ways to save money on food (groceries & eating out)?

Do you have any unusual/ quirky tips that help save you money?

And no, just eating less is not an option hahah

Me: “Oh hey, shall we grab a low key drink at say 7pm?”

Them: “You’re welcome to come over mine. Have you eaten?”

Me: “No, that would be great! See you soon!”

The above and finally getting over my fear of use by dates. Growing up I hated best before, my family joked about how at midnight I wouldn’t eat the food as the day is over. I try now to put it on Olio but there are some things I will still eat a day or three later… less waste!

Tip #1 - eat someone else’s food :wink:

I’m with you on this one! It depends on what the food is, but things like veg I don’t mind eating past their best date as long as they look ok!

I find that planning your meals and doing smaller shops helps with food waste too - I try not to buy any new food until I’ve eaten what I’ve got at home!

Also I’ve heard of this, but never used it. How is it? Easy to use?

It’s brilliant, I love it. I rarely use it for food, I haven’t taken any food but have given away. I’ve taken a couple of non-food items too.

I invested in Gively which is similar but nowhere near the scale. Give it a try :slight_smile:

Oooo downloading the app now!
