Is it my imagination or are food prices going up and up?
I had a few months where I though I was getting on top of the food bill, and in fact it was dropping, but this month I’ve just done my figures and we seem to be spending just as much as before. I’ve used up almost everything in the freezer and cupboard, I’ve batch cooked and we still seem to be spending more.
I’m beginning to think it might be worth driving to a cheaper supermarket, but I’ve got to factor in the cost of fuel and the car general running costs and my time, which is very limited.
One thing I am going to do this next month is to make a more comprehensive meal plan. The idea is that this will stop me from emergency trips to the shops. I also want to vary our diet a bit more, rather than just doing the same old things because they are easy.
Have you been able to keep your food costs down over recent months? Have you changed your food shopping habits?
Until next time, Tawney x
