10 ways to save money on food without compromising your principles

10 ways to save money on food without compromising your principles

Three-for-two deals, buy-one-get-one-free, multisavers and more of that ilk need to be treated with deep scepticism. Their whole purpose is to get you to buy more food than you might otherwise do. With non-perishable foods, they might possibly represent a chance to stock up on products that you'll get through in the fullness of time, although, if you're controlling your weekly budget carefully, it might be better to buy only what you need, as and when you need it, rather than stockpiling potentially useful foods. But apparently good deals on fresh food rarely save you money. They not only coax more money than you had intended out of your pocket, they also encourage you to overbuy. Chances are than some of what you pick up will be wasted because it was more than you really needed. A promotional deal isn't a bargain if it ends up in the bin.
