Planning ahead what food you’re going to need and in what quantities will allow you to shop around for the best deals, and also stops you from purchasing too much food that you’re not going to use.

Buy in bulk

One of the absolute best ways to save money on your food budget is by buying all of the things you need in bulk, and this also fits in with planning ahead. If you buy small portions then they’re usually more expensive than if you buy large quantities of the food that you need. This is also made possible by planning to make larger batches of the food when you’re buying the ingredients in bulk. 

Look for wonky bargains 

‘Wonky bargains’ are a type of deal that can be great at saving you money when buying your ingredients. Wonky bargains consist of fruit and vegetables that still taste good, however they don’t fit with the appearance of what shops usually sell, so they sell them for cheaper. These make great ingredients for dishes as the shape won’t matter when it is put into a dish.
