5 family meals on a budget.

How much do you spend a week on groceries? It may surprise you but as a family of 6 my average weekly shopping bill is £60-£70. And that includes loo roll and nappies! I have found that feeding your family (good meals) does not have to cost the earth. I thought I’d share my top 5 with you as they may help you at least one week to cut your bill down.

  • Pasta tuna (tuna mixed with pasta and mayo)
  • Meat and potato pie, peas, carrots (cook meat and potato, put in pie dish, cover with pasty and cook)
  • Chicken thighs, chips, peas
