Blog: Dean BestFive ways to cut your food bill

Dean Best | 8 May 2008

It’s not that long ago that I left university (although those six years have flown by) but today (8 May) I was reminded of life as a student.

No, not falling asleep in lectures on Machiavelli or pogo-ing around to the latest indie band in some Strongbow-soaked underground bar but the challenge of shopping on a budget.

Thankfully, that reminder didn’t come in the form of a salary cut from the bean counters at Aroq.

Instead, I was sent the latest advice on how to save a few pennies as food prices rise.

In the UK, a website called LoveFoodHateWaste.com has been set up to educate consumers on how to make the most of the food that they buy (if only they had things like this way back in 2001).

The site is dedicated to educating people about the need to reduce the amount of food they throw away.

A new article on the site shows how to reduce food waste and save some cash in the process. The site gives five quick tips from keeping your store cupboards well-stocked to better portion control.

“It’s amazing how many meals you can get from one chicken!” the website exclaims.

I haven’t a clue. Too busy spending my student days at the nearest KFC.
