One savvy mum has shown that is possible to eat on a budget – by feeding her family for just £20 a week!

Anneliese Giggins worked out a way to stick to the minute amount by checking out every single deal, bargain and multi-buy out there.

The wise woman used part of her £80 to stock up on life-long foods in one bulk shop, then replenished fresh fruit, meat, fish and veggies over the rest of the month to feed her husband, Neil, and their two boys.

Pricy items like crisps, pizza and biscuits were ditched and for treats, the mum-of-two would make chocolate cornflake cakes and ice lollies from banana and milk!

Anneliese, from Banbury, Oxon, even took a trip to the countryside where she picked blueberries and 99p stores and farm shops became her saviours.

She was quoted in the Daily Star explaining: "Food prices are sky high these days and it's a massive strain on family finances. So for 30 days, I scrutinised every single price label."

Her family feasted on simple meals such as spicy bean tortillas, spaghetti bolognese and tuna fishcakes.

But she admits that it was sometimes tough jazzing up dinners, saying: "The most challenging thing was avoiding boredom and the meals did become repetitive."

We wish she'd come and help us save some pennies!
