I have just started doing an aldi shop once a fortnight and have saved a heap so far. Used to spend 500 pen and I think I will get it down to 300. Let's seen how I go though! I agree that carbs are not a problem...we eat a very healthy Asian type diet mostly but the kids like spaghetti which we never used to eat before they came along. The high protein low carb diet does cost a lot more and our bills have gone down since I dug my heals in and stopped shopping that way...but I don't think that kind of diet is necessarily healthier anyway. My hubby and I argue over this...but that is another topic!
