We have all noticed the rapidly rising cost of living over the past month or two. From energy bills rocketing, to NI rising by 1.25%, we are set to feel the squeeze in every aspect of our lives. Even the Netflix subscription fee is rising by £1 per month!
Several of these increased costs are sadly out of our control, and we will need to reshuffle our budgets to account for these changes.
Savvy grocery shopping however is one area where cuts and switches can make a noticeable difference to our budgets. Along with batch cooking, bulk buying and opting for own brand products, there are loads of deals we can take advantage of to reduce our monthly food bill.
I’ve compiled a list of the best offers and discounts going which could help to dramatically cut the price of your weekly food shop. Whether you want cheap weekday meals or would like to stock up on cupboard essentials, I hope there is at least one offer on this list that can help you save some cash!

Simply Cook – FREE box
This handy little box contains the sauces and spices to make four different meals of your choice. Simply Cook’s variety of recipes is almost overwhelming, there are so many delicious sounding options! The ingredients lists for each recipe tend to be very simple compared to recipes typically found in cookbooks, and usually only require total of 4-5 items on average. This helps to keep shopping lists short and meal prices very affordable, but still exciting.
The meals can also be adapted super easily to use up what you already have in. As a veggie household we often swap out ingredients for Quorn, which works really well with Simply Cook recipes. Boxes are delivered for free and can be posted straight through your letterbox.
