£40 weekly meal planner

With food prices up a whopping 12% this year, you may find that there’s a lot less in your shopping basket for the same money.

To help you make the most of your food shopping, we’ve put together 4 weeks worth of cheap family recipes that will feed a family of four for just £40 a week.

Some websites offer meals for under a fiver, but you soon realise you can’t buy single eggs and tablespoons of milk – and suddenly your meal isn’t looking so cheap. Here, we’ve done the sums for you and added what you’ll need for the week without cheating on the quantities you need to buy products in.

Take a look at our monthly meal planner and download the shopping list to take with you – you can even print out the meal planner to stick on your fridge!
