A few supermarkets are offering pre-prepared boxes to make shopping easier and faster during social distancing – if you can get a delivery slot.
Morrisons Food Box
There’s a meat-eaters box and a vegetarian box. The actual contents will vary on each order – it’s all down to what’s in store. However you will get a mix of food and household essentials such as loo roll, bread and milk. A box costs £35.
Morrisons says both boxes will typically have
- Canned baked beans, soup and pasta sauce
- Dairy products such as butter and cheese
- Rice and pasta
- Vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots and onions
- Essential household items
In addition, the meat box will have meat products, such as sausage, bacon and cooked meat, and fresh meat such as chicken or beef.
While the vegetarian box will also have “Vegetarian proteins”.

Free Ben & Jerry’s tub for new Shopmium users
You can often save a little extra on your groceries using supermarket cashback apps (read my review). One – Shopmium – offers a freebie to get you started. Right now you can get a free tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
It’s been a snack jar of Nutella for a while and it used to be a bar of Lindt chocolate, and has at times been a box of cornettos. It should say when you download the app.
Use the code KHMYEEFW to activate the offer. Once you have signed up you’ll need to buy the item and then scan your receipt to get the money paid back.
There are always lots of other discounts and freebies on the app, so it’s worth browsing to see what else you can buy.
Deals to save at M&S food
I’ve written a separate article on all the ways you can cut the cost of food at Marks & Spencer.
Cheap out of date / close to expiry bargains from Approved Food
It’s worth checking out Approved Food’s website to see if there’s anything that takes your fancy. It sells safe to eat food that’s either just out of date or part of a warehouse clearance. When I tried it I managed to buy things that had years left before they expired.
