Welcome to my Hungry Savers Series, every single week I’m going to be bringing you another fantastic blogger, one whos as passionate about food and saving money in the kitchen as I am! I’ve asked them a series of questions that they’ve answered honestly. You can check out the 7 responses below and if you fancy checking them out click here! If you’re a blogger and want to take part in the Hungry Savers Series, then please get in touch. This weeks instalment is from www.householdmoneysaving.com.
These are the questions asked:
Tell us about your blog
My blog is about saving money on your bills and also looks at different ways of making money away from your main job.
What supermarket do you prefer and why?
Tesco is my favourite. They have a good choice of products and their delivery saver scheme is great value. Not the cheapest of shops but we don’t have any budget supermarkets close to us. And I use the Tesco Clubcard points to get good deals on days out.
3 money saving tips for the kitchen
- Shop late in the evening and you can find food that is close to its sell-by date that will have been reduced to pennies.
- You can find great deals on kitchen utensils during the Black Friday sales, so if you can, wait until then.
- Batch cook food.
- Buying bigger quantities usually saves you money and you can freeze most meals.
An expensive item you can’t live without in the kitchen and why?
My American style fridge freezer. It has a built-in ice maker which is essential over the summer, especially when we have BBQ’s. It’s one of those things that I always thought was pointless, but couldn’t live without now.
What is your favourite recipe?
Pork Biryani with mangetout and carrots. It’s quite a versatile dish, so you can add or take away ingredients depending on how you feel. I love the fact that if my family has been hard work that day, I can keep adding curry powder and extra chilli!
What is your favourite kitchen gadget?
An electric carving knife. It’s made my life so much easier and my meat no longer looks like it’s been attacked by a pair of blunt scissors.
Who or what inspired you to cook?
My children. Before having them, I could easily eat takeaway and freezer food every day. Now, it’s far important that we have a variety of food and we eat more healthily.
