My Tip for a Frugal New Year!

I have recently been lucky enough to win £100 of Argos vouchers in a competition by submitting a tip that would help you cope with the onslaught of January's bills. I am quite proud of my idea, so I thought I'd share it on my blog....


"To tighten my belt in January, I have my annual "food audit"! My family laugh...but I go through the cupboards and freezer and plan menus around what we've got lurking there! It means nothing gets wasted, we only have to buy perishables for a few weeks which cuts our shopping costs and the kitchen gets a good sort out!! We also discover a few new ideas for dinners as we have to get creative and google new recipes to use up all the rogue tins and packets bought then ignored over the previous year!!!"



Time to get creative in the kitchen!

  1. That's a great idea. There's so many stray tins in our cupboard that we have bought for one reason or another and not used.
    We have been quite good of late though - each week, we plan our meals and buy what we need for them meals. Then we don't end up spending on stuff we won't use.
    Congrats on winning the vouchers! They'll come in handy, I'm sure! x

  3. That's a fab idea, I'm all for using up what you've already got. It's greener and also loads more economic xxx
