Over the last few weeks, it have become very apparent that we need a smaller food budget. This is the tightest we have ever been financially and food seems to be one of those areas where I should be able to save some money.
With our move from the USA to the UK, we are also dealing with the increased cost of goods because our money is tied to the conversion rate.
There are several people doing incredible challenges with really small spending. And others calculate the cost of each meal. I know some people are incredible with coupon shopping, too (I just have no idea if they even have coupons here -- haven't seen any yet).
Being new to this, I am looking for some advise. What do you do? How do you set your food budget? How much do you spend in a week, or month, or per meal? Any other advise?
Thanks for all your help!
