A great way to save money at the supermarket is to grow some food yourself and/or keep a few hens for fresh eggs.
Anyone can grow their own, you don't have to be an accomplished gardener to be successful at growing vegetables and the satisfaction that growing food for your table brings, is immense. You don't even need a big garden, you can grow veggies in pots & bags on balconies and Ive even seen herbs & veggies being grown in windows.
I gave up my allotment last year because I struggled to find the time to manage such a vast area so I decided to grow my veg this year in raised beds, pots, bags and hanging baskets in my back garden which has proved to be much more manageable.
Potato seeds can be picked up for a couple of quid for around 30 seeds and can easily be grown in bags. You can buy bags specifically designed for growing spuds but old compost bags work just as well.
Potato seeds were planted in the bag in March and by June we have lots of growth.
Hopefully in another few weeks I'll be harvesting delicious fresh spuds.
My Niece seeded my tomato's this year over the Easter holidays.
kids love to get involved with growing food too.
They are doing really well and soon we will be able to pick lots of yummy toms that are full of flavour just as we have in previous years.
So we save money at the supermarket by growing our own food and keeping a few hens.
Why not give a go too.
