Ever logged into your online banking and you’re displayed with a food receipt? You then sit there going through each and every transaction HOPING that some sort of fraud activity had taken place, but nope it was all you. All of it.
On average, I spend £6 on weekdays on food, that is £30 a week, £120 a month! Friday’s I reward myself to a hot dish for lunch which may easily come up to £10. This is just during weekdays at work btw. Let me not even go there regarding weekends. It’s devastating.
For someone who is saving up to buy a property, this behaviour is not on.
I had somewhat a reality check in August and started taking packed lunch to work. Groceries for the week had cost me around £15 (thanks to Lidl and Asda). I was able to prep two dishes a day ( for myself and my boyfriend).
Now we both spend no more than £60 on food for lunch. BINGO!
Take packed lunch guys, you save so much money. I literally saved half.
Thursday’s dish - Honey, garlic glazed salmon with crispy kale/veg and rice.
