Split the allowance into 5 equal sums, one fifth for fruit and vegetables, one fifth for eggs, fish and meat; one fifth for bread and cereals; one fifth for milk and cheese; one fifth for bacon, fats, jams and other groceries.

How to shop cheaply

  1. Shop early when possible.
  2. If you are able to shop before closing time, you can often obtain great bargains in perishable goods.
  3. Don't make up your mind about what you want to have until you have looked around the shops. Sometimes there are cheap offers. Take advantage of them.
  4. When there are food sales, buy foods that store well.
  5. Pay cash and carry home your purchases.
  6. Examine what you purchase before paying for it.
