Eat well for less If you ever feel that you spend all of your time trying to juggle the demands of a tasty diet against the constraints of your budget, if you are torn between the need to save money and belief that reducing your grocery budget will result in repetitive and uninspiring meals - if you love food, yet hate debt - then this is the website for you.

Good food does not need to cost an arm and a leg, and frugality is not the same thing as deprivation. What we offer is a monthly menu planner for an average family - two adults, two teens - which covers everything a person will eat and drink in a month for an incredible 80p per day, whilst still offering an average familyís usual fare.

I'm no Delia!

Lower food bills And now you may be thinking - oh, itís okay for those who have the time to stay at home and cook all day, but Iím a busy person with a busy family, there is no way I would ever be able to do all this. Well, we beg to differ. The planner has been created by a working mum of two, and tested by a variety of real life families, all with their own busy and demanding lives, and there is advice on getting ahead with the cooking so you can fit all the work in when it suits you.

DEFRA figures show that an average UK family of four spend £5300 per year on food. Our planner will feed a family of four for £1168 per year. That's a saving of over £4000 a year on average - and the planner provides more than the recommended "five a day", as well as meeting your recommended daily amounts (RDAs) of vitamins and minerals.

So really - what are you waiting for ?
