Yes, babies do need a lot but that doesn't mean you have to go out and spend thousands on the latest baby gear as soon as you get a positive pregnancy test.

How I Cut My Food Bill In Half And Started Saving £150 A Month

Here's how I cut my food bill in half and started saving £150 a month...and how you can too with these tips!

Last year I decided to take action to start saving money and one of the things I realised I needed to do was cut down my spending starting with the food shop. At one point I used to spend on average £80-£100 a week on our food shop and this was for myself, a toddler and a baby who both didn't eat much at all. Fast forward a year and I found myself in the exact same position and sat down to see where all of my expenses were coming from. My weekly food shop would be around the £60 mark but I would also be popping to the shops 3-4 times a week for extra things and end up spending £30-50 a time! With one month spending over £600 on groceries which is just ridiculous, especially for 1 adult, a toddler and a baby!

I am pleased to say that I have managed to get the food shop back down to £40-50 a week which I am extremely happy with and am now saving on average around £150 a month which goes straight into my money savings tin or towards other things such as the breakdown cover or TV license renewal. 

I wanted to share with you how I managed to cut my food shop in half and how you can too by introducing a few changes to your lifestyle.
