Andy’s £1,000 money makeover part 8: Your food

This week I’m looking at ways to cut your food spend.

My money makeover continues! Here are more ways you can get clever with your spending to boost your savings by at least £1,000.

We probably don’t prioritise our food spending as it feels smaller than many of our bills – but add together the spend at the supermarket, takeaways and eating out and it’ll be one of your biggest expenses.

But that also means it can be one of the biggest ways to save money.

Here’s how you can save at the supermarket, why cutting just one takeaway can make a huge difference, and just how much money a packed lunch is worth to you over a year.

Watch the rest in my money makeover series here.
