With the Eurozone in crisis and the UK in the grip of a double dip recession, budgeting is more important to most households than ever before. Figures show that the majority of us spend in excess of £100 on our weekly family shop – but that amount can be slashed by following a few simple rules.
1. Shop online: When you’re in the supermarket, it’s hard to constantly assess the price of everything in your basket. When shopping online, you’ll have the total constantly to hand and you’ll be able to go over your shop before hitting the virtual check-out to make sure that you really need everything in your basket. Plus, most supermarkets will deliver for free, meaning you’ll save on the fuel bill as well.
