Ways to save on grocery bills

It’s always a good idea to look for ways to save on your weekly grocery shopping wherever you go.

For example, there are cheap food clubs run by local community groups or charities.

These clubs partner with local supermarkets that donate groceries that are approaching their sell-by dates. They are usually operated from public places such as church halls.

For example, the Too Good To Go app connects you with local grocery stores who have leftover groceries at the end of the day to sell for less.

You’ll pay between £1 and £7 for a ‘magic’ bag or box from a local store containing a surprising mix of products.
