Food Haul!

If you didn’t already know this month I am attempting to meal plan and keep my food costs as low as possible. So when I arrived back at uni, for the first time ever I went to the supermarket armed with a strict shopping list of everything that I would need! I am keeping a record of all my costings this month and I wanted to share my food shop with you.

I also recorded a food haul video on my new YouTube channel so go check it out and I would love it if you could subscribe!

This is not too bad seeing as I bought a lot of food that would last the whole month and also considering that some of the items will last longer than one month, such as weetabix and porridge.

I hope this is helpful, and please comment any tips you have for saving money, or any good recipes I could try out!

  1. proud of you. you’ve got this💙. and i save money by buying lots of things in bulk, such as almonds, granola, rice, dried fruits, and trail mix. bulk is much cheaper per pound!! ☺️☺️

  2. I never went to uni but part of me wishes I did because I love budgeting for stuff. There’s a really a good student cookbook though which I have used called Nosh for Students and its worth checking out! Great post 😊

  3. Love this post 👌🏻 I am so bad at shopping if I don’t take a list… everything just gets thrown in my trolley and ends up being twice as expensive as I wanted!
    Taking a list and sticking to it is definitely the way forward! X

    1. Haha I used to be exactly the same, and sometimes I’ll still go to the shops just to get some milk and still come out with an entire food shop and a cushion or something else random! But I have definitely found lists really helpful so I don’t just pick up everything!! x
