    You could get some veggies, carrots, swede, parsnip, onions etc and some chicken oxo cubes and make yourself a big batch of veggie soup - it shouldn't be too expensive and it will be filling and free food, and warming in this weather.

    You can loads of things with potatoes and a few bit and bobs... potato soup, tortilla, potato curry, chips, potato bake, gnocchi, pizza base. For the sausages you could stew them with onion in gravy, chop them up and put them in a pasta or sausage curry.

    Umm it doesnt really matter tbh because they taste the same regardless of what colour they are.. If you like you could fry them in frylight and some garlic.. But I personally chuck them in with the tomatoes, garlic, onion mix as they cook in that xx Obviously cook the pasta seperatly then plonk it all together at the end :p xxx

    Was going to suggest morrisons as yesterday when I was there they had onions, carrot and apples for 30p a pack, also some green beans for 50p and a big bag of potatoes is £1.50 ish. Get some cheapy tinned tomatoes, cheapy baked beans, pasta and such. When I was just feeding me I used to do my entire weeks grocery shop for about £10. Get inventive with what you have available!

    Hope this week goes well for you.

    Nothing like being skint to bring out the creative side of cooking is there. Its amazing what you can cook from what seems like nothing and make a good tasty filling meal. Curried anything is brilliant for this.

    It can be done! I have got my grocery bill down to about £180 a month for 2 adults & 1.5 children (one only visits and doesn't live with us!) One a month I tend to do a big shop at iceland and a big shop at morrisons or tesco, then top up shop once a week for bits n bobs n fresh fruit.

    There is also a fruit n veg stall up our high street that I get to if I get chance as that is usually better value for money. Have not been to the market in years but my dad swears by it.

    Ooh also to add that when you have a bit of spare cash invest in some seasonings, curry, chilli, coriander, cajun, paprika and so on - really can liven up and alter the taste of something otherwise quite bland.

    And I've found that herbs and spices are really cheap and good quality at Lidl. Even buying one a week means you could easily build up a good selection on a budget :)
