The biggest saving I've ever made in my life is to switch from eating loads of convenience food to eating loads of staples and actually... cooking.
Has anyone else found this? You can get tonnes of dried beans and lentils for hardly anything and make yourself a massive casserole or even a nice curry.
My local greengrocers also does 10kg of washed potatoes for £2.50. Not something I'd find in tesco or on here.
A little bit of effort in cooking and remembering to take a packed lunch and a big bottle of water with you to work, means loads more money to spend on the deals on here.
People moan that it's too much effort but it really isn't. Infact I found it has made me more organised in other things in life.
What shocks me more though is I'm actually finding the organic beans cheaper... than the ones in tesco that aren't organic.
