Can't remember the last time I bought a single pint of milk. I buy a larger bottle, tip half into a washed out bottle and freeze it.
I've found the cereal to be the biggest increases, Tesco Sultana bran had been £1.80 earlier this year now £2.45, I tend to buy 2 boxes a time as I know the price will have gone up again before long.
We are trying to cook more meat free dishes, sweet potato curry is the favourite and surprisingly cheap per portion.
By overall food bill has probably increased by £20 a week from the start of the year, but trying to get smarter and dishing up extra portions before the OH helps himself to seconds and thirds
The eggs I buy are currently priced at £2.30/doz (large) and £2.00/doz (med) but I buy the same amount as before as I still find them good value for money for their versatility. Chickens, on the other hand, are a different kettle of fish - much more expensive. The thighs and drumsticks I normally buy have also gone up but at least they're still within budget - for now.
Fresh turkeys are starting to appear on the shelves, prices from £24 for a large one up to £32 for an extra large. There won't be one on our Xmas menu - but there never has been as it's not our "go to" Xmas meat.
