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!

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


These are the questions asked:

Tell us about your blog is a lifestyle and finance hybrid which I created to give people tips and advice for living a life full of luxury, experiences and quality – whilst on a budget.

What supermarket do you prefer and why? 

When I was a poor student I shopped at Asda however now I’m an adult it’s shifted to Sainsbury’s. I travel a lot for work so I collect Nectar points when I buy my trains so if I combine that with shopping I can earn around £200 a year in Nectar points which pays for some Christmas presents! I am interested in checking out Aldi soon to price match because if I can save £200 a year shopping at Aldi then it’s worth the switch.

3 money saving tips for the kitchen

  1. Plan your meals so you only buy what you need for your week. This will help with reducing food and money waste.
  2. Meal prep in advance. If you’ve never meal prepped, start off by ‘double cooking’ where you cook a double portion on Monday so Tuesday you just have to reheat. Then you repeat with Wednesday and Thursday etc. It saves time and on the washing up!
  3. Keep your fridge stocked low and your cupboards and freezer full. This will reduce your waste of food and money.

An expensive item you can’t live without in the kitchen and why?

Can I have two? A good set of knives and a good set of pans will be worth their cost for many years to come. Being cheap is buying the lowest priced set possible but being frugal is buying a set that will last you 10 years.

What is your favourite recipe?

I’m a northern girl at heart so I love stodgy food. My favourite meal to cook for guests or loved ones is a classic shepherds pie inside a plate-sized yorkshire pudding. It always goes down a treat but isn’t something you could handle every night!

What is your favourite kitchen gadget? 

I use a julienne peeler that can turn almost anything from carrots to courgettes into a healthy replacement for the carbs in my meals – without the hassle or expense of a spiralizer. Is it perfect? No. But it does the job just fine.

Who or what inspired you to cook?

I’ve recently become a healthy person in the last 3 years (besides the occasional plate-sized shepherds pie) and I’ve become passionate about what’s in my food and how that provides nutrients and calories to my body. I find that taking responsibility for the food on my plate rather than just ordering takeaways like I used to changed my enjoyment of cooking. Nowadays, I’ll insist on cooking even after the longest or hardest day at work as it’s my time to get creative and de-stress.
