Being a student we know life is hard, trying to spend as little on any food you may need. Well here are a couple of quick and easy ways for you to do a weekly shop that wont cost you an arm and leg.
Buy Stuff in BulkLots of Pasta.
May not seem like a great idea but sometimes you get some amazingly cheap stuff. Try only buying stuff in bulk if it will keep, like pasta or rice. Don’t try buying stuff that is just going to go in the bin after a week.
Buy Non-Brand or Supermarket Brand StuffThe French know hows its done…
To be honest, the big supermarkets have pretty much EVERYTHING you need to survive on. Check out Tesco Value or Morrison own brand items for stuff thats just super cheap.
Look out for in Store OffersDale knows how its done…
It may seem obvious but you don’t normally notice all the offers available. Just look around you. Supermarkets have some amazing offers (especially on new items). If you don’t want to buy the own brand stuff try just buying stuff that has a deal.
Check the Reduced SectionBARGINS
Always be sure to check out the reduced section in any supermarket, sometimes you get some amazing stuff and seriously amazing prices. The stuff here normally goes off pretty soon so its best to buy stuff that you are going to be eating the same day.
