It seems to me that your first strategy should be staying out of the supermarket at the weekends. It's so annoying to pop in for a pint of milk and find yourself £20 lighter with a bag full of "treats" that you don't really need. I used to do that all the time but now I really can't afford to so I only step into a supermarket about once every ten days.

this is exactly what I have just been mulling over myself. thinking of once a month stocking up on the 3 for £10 meats from the co-op, basics such as beans,coffee ,flour etc from tesco and cleaning stuff from home bargains,
leaving in theory just the fridge stuff yoghurts,milk,ham etc to get once a week.
I am in my first month of the grocery challenge and just logging all the money we spend just to see how much...what an eye opener!
