A savvy shopper has shared her shopping list online to help families cut down on costs.
The Tesco customer spent just £15 on 23 items which she will use to feed herself and her kids three meals a day – that works out at just £2 per day.
Posting on Facebook, the mum said: “I have created a shopping list as well as meal ideas to help people out there ensure their child/children are getting 3 meals a day for £14.94.”
The mum's shop is able to feed her and her children breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for less than £15.
She added: “It may be quite repetitive (especially breakfast), but any meal is better than no meal.”
