    My top tip is go for basic ranges and dont be afraid to shop around for cheep deals

  11. Fiona Maclean says:

    My top tip is to serve plenty of vegetables! Carb fillers like potatoes and rice are actually an essential part of our diet, but a lot of people have cut them right out

    Hi Katie,

    My tip would be to buy seasonal. Buy the fruit, veg and meats that are in abundance as they are much cheaper. It also is better for the environment – no eating imported strawberries in January!

  22. Zoe Allen says:

    My tip would be dont over look cheaper cuts of meat or even mince! Cooked the right way cheaper cuts can be just as delicious as say sirloin for example and there is so much you can do with mince it really is a staple in this house

  28. Jane Willis says:

    Plan ahead – but not too rigorously. If you see a really good bargain on an item that isn’t on your list, you need to be able to make a mental swap of your planned meals while you are shopping. And try to always know what you already have at home in your fridge and cupboards, so you don’t accidentally double up on things, and so that you know what ingredients you have at home that would work with your bargain buys.

  33. Emily M says:

    My top tip is to get the family eating the same thing!! Children actually enjoy eating the same meals of us and it saves money and also a lot of time! If you have to eat at different times which we often do due to the hours we work have lots of freezer pots at the ready so you can always put aside a portion for the kids for another time. Have tried out the Sainsburys meal planner myself and found it really helpful, reminded how useful it actually is to actually plan and make a shopping list!

    Thanks for running the competition, sounds like the carbonara was a hit – sneak those courgettes down!!

    My tips for feeding a family of six (four boys, one man and me) are buy fruit and vegetables at the market wherever possible, try and meal plan with an eye on the next couple of meals (how to use leftovers if any etc.) and make your kitchen a happy place as you’ll be spending a LOT of time in it cooking from scratch…

  42. Pamela Hamby says:

    my tip is to make sure you shop around, read all the flyers then decide and also sometimes shopping first thing in the morning means you get ‘whoopsies’ where food hasnt got a long life so is greatly reduced this way you can still freeze it all for a fraction of the price

  43. Pamela Hamby says:

    tweeting you and sainsburys both on twitter @dancer2712 and also commented individually on here as per your instructions

  44. Tony Anthony Micheal says:

    I have to cook on a very tight budget so when I go shopping I go straight to the reduced selection and always stock up with as much reduced food as possible and either cook it that night and freeze it down, or freeze it straight away. That way my family can eat very healthy for a fraction of the price.

    I’m follwing you on Twitter @handbag2000

  49. Clare Hargreaves says:

    My tips are to plan your meals, then cook from scratch. You can bulk up a meal by using more seasonal veg & less meat. If you cook one big batch, you can freeze the leftovers for a healthy & easy ready meal for when you may be tight on time.

  60. Lorraine Gaw says:

    Plan your meals for the week ahead and try to stick to fruit & veg that are in season. Also, try and visit your supermarket later in the evening if you can – mine usually have some good meat reductions around 8pm, saves me a fortune, especially on the ‘nicer’ cuts. If any of the meat is too large for what you need, split it into smaller portions, label and pop in the freezer.

  76. Daisybeebee says:

    Grow your own veg ( or get your dad to do so 🙂 ). Shop at local farmer’s markets and build up great relationships , it’s amazing the deals you can get.

  77. Samantha says:

    I look out for items that are reduced that we will eat, especially if it can be frozen. The other day, I found frozen sausages in Sainsburys reduced from £1.99 to 25p, and mini cheesecakes (again frozen) down to 50p. In Iceland, they often reduce their products, wine gum boxes, down to £1 (now put aside for Christmas as BBD is 2012) and frozen cornish pasties were 50p for 2.

    I try not to buy things that I know will go off too soon, and thus be thrown away as I really hate waste.

    I make many of my meals from scratch; something like spag bowl buy some of the basics ranges from the shops (tinned tomatoes are always good), add basics dried herbs, 1/4 of onion, bit of garlic along with the mince. Basic spaghetti and pasta with it and you have a cheap meal. Any that’s left over, can be frozen and served up on another night.

    top tip for feeding a family on a budget is to try and not be wasteful . invest in some plastic containers that will seal food properly for a couple of days so you can work out what to do with your leftovers while your storing it in the fridge

  85. My tip is to make food yourself and with any left overs don’t throw them away. Put them in plastic tubs and freeze so you can get them out at another date and use the food that’s left.

    When I cook for my family I tend to use left over roast on Monday or Tuesday. If we have roast chicken then I may make pealla on Monday or Tuesday. Roast beef – philly steak sandwiches, Pork – BBQ pork or stir fry. Can spread alot further and reduce meal costs

  105. Rachel Medhurst says:

    My top tip is to use fresh ingrediants to make freezable dishes. For instance have enough ingrediants to make lasagne, shepards pie, fish pies etc…make several of each and freeze. These last quite a while frozen, so you can vary your diet as well as save money.

    My tip is to take a picnic on outings. You can take your Sainsbury’s favourites, have lots to eat and drink without worrying that the family are turning their noses up at and leaving expensive cafe food. Picnics can be great fun even in inclement weather. The children’s 88 year old great gran has been known to enjoy a hectic food scramble in the car whilst looking out at the rain because we’ve been able to suit her food wishes!
    Even finding cafe food to suit wide tastes is often difficult without the problem of expense.

  119. Samantha Whistler says:

    my tip is to invest in a chest freezer- that way you have room to stock up on essentials when you see a really good offer, plus stops you having to go to the supermarket so often!

  120. catherine geraghty says:

    meal plan each day so you know exactly what you need and stick to the list, so you dont get unecessary ‘bargains’

  121. Paula Nixon says:

  128. Kieran Walsh says:

    combine, some of the above, supermarkets allways, have great bargins, on certain lines, which change week by week, it never works to plan too far in advance, but a knowledge of likes and dislikes help, home cooking is best, but sometimes, it is cheaper to buy ready made, for young children try and make food intresting, , one special treat a week,supermarkets these days are allways there to help

  129. Kieran Walsh says:

    have allready liked on facebook/ have twitted as above as @old walshy

  130. Jan Bailey says:

    Top tip – cook from scratch where possible – at least you know what’s in the meal ( no nasty additives). Slip in extra veg. to bulk it out – easy if there’s a tasty sauce holding it all together. Make a list and plan your meals but be flexible. Sometimes there are good offers or BOGOFs – but remember to use or freeze these extra goodies ( they’re not a bargain if they’re in the bin cos they’re past their use-by date)

  131. Emma Howard says:

    My top tip for feeding a family on a budget is to use a slow cooker. I bulk buy on meat and vegetables, cook it in the slow cooker then freeze what we don’t eat that night.

  158. Lindy Hine says:

    My tip is to use supermarkets own brand goods because they’re just as good as brand names. Also save time and money by cooking a huge batch of things such as spag bol and freezing. (and when you do try Quorn mince instead of steak mince as it’s cheaper and also less fatty!)

  182. Sarah Cooper says:

    Meal plan and use to make sure you are getting the cheapest prices.

  183. peter says:

    dont pay extra for ready prepared fruit and veg – buy it fresh and do all the cutting/chopping and washing yourself

  184. Sarah says:

    My tip for feeding a family on a budget is to do your grocery shopping on-line. It’s much easier to buy just what you need and the impulse purchases are kept to a minimum.

  185. Laura says:

    My top tip is to make a meal plan at the start of the week, check what you already have in, then make a list and shop accordingly and do not deviate from your list!

    my tip is to always plan ahead, a weeks list of menus is a good way, plus if you can try growing your own veg and salad as you would be surprised the cost of this on the weekly shopping bill!

  228. Rob Clayton says:

    Keep to fresh food. choosing the right ingredients (especially veg and salad) will do more than one meal, so choose carefully

  229. victoria rogers says:

    my top tip is to plan your menu for the week and shop accordingly, this saves loads of money and you never have to ask yourself.. “what am i gonna do for dinner tonight!” have also liked on facebook x

  230. Karin Hall says:

    Always go shopping at about 4-5pm, when perishable goods that are nearing their sell-by date are being reduced… You can always freeze anything you don’t need right away and use it later! And of course there’s always the Nectar points to collect from Sainsbury’s and other places!!

  231. Maya Russell says:

    Shop online – it’s not rushed and prices can be compared more easily. The small delivery fee is well worth it especially when you don’t have to spend petrol and so worth being hasslefree!

    Shop later in the day when you can pick up reduced foods. Make a big pot of soup, load of veg. Make casseroles and eek it out with lentils and veg.

  244. Linda Gray says:

    I use broken fillets of fish, which can be bought inexpensively from the fishmonger, to make a delicious fish pie. End-cuts of cheese which have been rejected by my family, enrich the flavour of the mashed potatoes, and give my pie a rich crunchy top

  245. Rebecca Holmes says:

    make pasta sauces yourself so have tinned tomatoes, herbs and garlic. Cheese eggs and milk and dried pasta cheap meals in minutes. Also buy a slow cooker then the cheaper cut’s of meat i.e lamb neck can be made in to a yummy curry forvery little money and with very little effort.

    My top tip is to make a large batch of a base mince in our case I use Quorn because my son is vegetarian.Then you can add different ingrediants to that according to what you whant to make that day.For example if you want bolognese you add herbs but if you want chilli you had red beans and chilli.The quorn mince in gravy is great with rice or mashed potatoes!

    my top tip has to be writing out a menu for the week and stick to it – it means that you not only save time in the evening when thinking of what’s for tea but it also helps prevent the dreaded impulse buys.

    If planning is not your thing, try to go when food is being reduced (normal around 7pm here) and grab some bargains (my mum and dad did a shop today paying £21 for goods that should have totalled over £70)

  259. Karen Dixon says:

    When you see an item that you use all the time and can be stored buy it there and then but only do this with items with a long expiry day –

  275. Donna Bailey says:

    My top tip is to mix cheaper products with brand names, you can’t tell the difference. For instance buy a Robinsons Squash and an own brand squash of the same flavour and mix them in a bigger bottle together and end up with an overall decent squash for a fraction of the price.

    Also buy in bulk when products you use are on special offer.

    My tip would be to make double and freeze the 2nd lot – use the following week when you are in a rush or need a eve off from cooking…cheaper than a take away and more healthier!! I have used some of the recipes from the meal plan for £50 – fab idea – more different recipes in future would be great!! (more to choose from!) fingers crossed I will win!!!

    My second tip is to involve the children and guaranteed they will eat the food when cooked – it really works!!! 🙂

  284. Kerry Black says:

    Get the kids involved. If they chop veg, they will try soup. If they stir and knead, they will balke. Go homemade and have fun together!

  285. Kerry Black says:

    Just liked Sainsbury’s on FB-they have some great money spinning ideas!

    Rt’d your posts

    My Top Tips would be

    Always make sure you are not hungry BEFORE you go shopping! Buying whilst you want to eat makes you buy more and snacky type rubbish which will not fill you up and costs ££££
    Invest in some good quality freezer tubs and portion up any leftovers and freeze, make double of say bolognese and freeze half!
    If your freezer is not full, buy cheap loaves of bread and stock it up, saves you £££ on Electric!
    PLAN your meals for the week/month etc Even if it sounds boring it saves loads!
    Make a LIST and stick to it (and remember to take it with you lol)
    Look at special offers on items you can put away i.e. Large tins of Roses if the use by is well over the nearest Xmas and you can hold out and not open them stock up!!
