I’ve already blogged about our experience doing our weekly shop at Morrison’s since they have made a series of store wide price cuts (read about it HERE) but now its time to get down to the nitty gritty and tell you about what we have cooked and eaten and the actual cost per person for each of the meals. Please note I am not a food blogger or photographer and it really shows in my pictures, all I can say is I did my best : )
Fish = Morrisons own breaded Haddock £4 for 4 = 50p each
New potato’s = 79p/bag = used two thirds = 26p each
Mushy peas = Morrison’s savers 16p = 8p each
Total cost per person = 84p each !!
I actually can not believe how cheap this meal was!!
Mince = Morrison’s lean mince beef £2.75 = used a third = 46p each
Chilli spice mix = Schwartz 84p = 42p each
Rice = Morrison’s small bag 90p = used 1 cup = 23p each
Kidney beans = from my store cupboard 30p = 15p each
onion = 1 white onion 15p = 8p each
Total cost per person = £1.49 each
Wraps = 1 pack of 8 £1 = 13p each
Cheese = 1 large block £2 = 20p each
lettuce = 49p = 5p each
cucumber = half 25p = 3p each
Total cost per person = 41p each
Banana = 43p for 5 = 9p each
eggs = £2.75 for 15 = 2 used = 37p
Yogurt = Morrison’s savers 45p = 10p
Total cost per person = 56p each
In summary I’m really impressed with the costs per person that these meals work out to be, especially the fish meal as this isn’t something we usually cook. But at this price I’ll be doing it much more often. I found the whole exercise really insightful and am actually thinking I should calculate the cost per person of all the meals I cook so I can work out which are the most economical and plan our meals around these findings – this might be an ongoing process, so I’ll keep you updated as to how I get on!
