I’m always trying to shop for food as cheaply as I can. I am a great believer in cooking from scratch whenever I can and this saves a lot of money. There are some things I won’t compromise on such as tea bags 🙂
The supermarkets have led us to believe that all fruit and veg must be of the same size and perfectly formed. This isn’t the case – fruit and veg can be in all shapes and sizes and still taste just as good.
If I’m not able to get to the market, I will always rummage around the basics ranges to find what I want. I love having a few bits of fresh fruit on my breakfast. Here are some grapes and blueberries I bought the other day:
There is no difference in taste at all between them and the ‘perfect’ product. The only differences I could see were that:
a) the fruits are different sizes
b) they cost around half the price of the ‘perfect’ fruit.
What are your best finds among the basics ranges or in the market?
Until next time, Tawney x
