So after seeing my bank statement for December i really needed to have a cheap month - i know the stuff ive listed wont be the most exciting of meals but its very low budget
Porridge oats - 75p for 1kg (60p for me i bought on double discount ) The value range is also gluten free , I just add water or if im at home some oat milk. A spoonful of jam (28p for jar or cinnamon 95p) also helps sweeten it up .
Oatmilk 3 for 3 , (2.70) i will probabily use all 3 in a week.
Gluten free pasta 60p (48p) for 1kg
value rice 45p for 1kg
value chopped tomatoes 28p x4 1.14
1kg red kidney beans - 2 for 3 quid
sweetcorn x2 70p
Recipes are quite plain pasta with a tin of chopped tomatoes , Rice dishes with a mix of chickpeas,kidney beans and sweetcorn . Pasta with the chopped tomatoes ,chickpeas and beans .
I already had some cooking oil in the house plus other spices so havent included them in my cost for the week
This list comes to just under 10 or for me less than 9 quid which was fine for a weeks food. I also have quite a bit of rice , iam, chickpeas and kidney beans left
what are other peoples go to cheap meals , im pretty boring with what i like and need to try new things !!
