Weekly menu planning, and then shopping online, has been the most effective way we've found to keep food costs down. Even if you end up spending up to a fiver on delivery (less if you can manage a fortnightly cycle), it saves the extra end of aisle promotion, till point confectionary temptations, general stress and strain of getting out there, parking etc. And if you're working to a menu, less waste. Aside from that I found getting rid of the children, and other pets, quite a money saver. Kept the chickens though as they do make a contribution to the enterprise, and are really funny. But then I go and blow it all on dry rot renovations, BSA parts, Land Rover gearboxes, so what do I know?
