  1. Two thousand pounds for the whole year?
    That’s £38 a week.
    How many of you is that to feed? And does it include non-food stuff?

    1. Hi Penny! Yep lol. It’s for 2/2.5 of us – my son is home from uni in the holidays. It also includes non food stuff. I use a very limited amount of other stuff – clean with vinegar, soda crystals etc, don’t buy paper products apart from loo rolls

  2. Soup for a solo dinner is where it’s at! :-) I had my lentil soup & banana bread combination for a week when M was traveling. He’s gone again in a week or so, & I have a batch of chili in the freezer. I’m also thinking of making a potato soup. My favorite. :-)

  3. You are doing so well Laura I am also on the same budget for 2 adults and when DS comes over for food at least once a week.
