I've just perfected my milk recipe so our milk now only costs us roughly 25c a litre. We still buy cows milk for DS and me but that lasts 2-3 days but saving $2.60 a litre on the oat milk helps big time considering DH can go through up to 1.5lt a day. I'll also be making bread when I dig the bread maker out of the garage. One of our biggest savings though is the no meat bit. I can feed the 3 of us at dinner for under $5 when I need to. It's certainly not for everyone though.
I agree with the washable cloths instead of the paper towel. That will save you quite a bit. Buying in bulk where you can will save you too. A yogurt maker is reasonable cheap and you can get recipes off the net that taste so much better than any store bought yogurt and is better for you. Those little kids tubs are fairly high in sugar, as are a lot of the ski and yoplet ones.
If you do a search on here for sausage and bacon casserole I've posted it one day. It's something we had a fair bit growing up because it was cheap but it's so yum. I've even adapted it to be vegetarian.

Shop around for better deals on your phone etc.
Keep your fuel tank full
Make your portions of meat slightly smaller so it lasts longer
If your hubby will only use viva parer towels, leave them for him to use and you use microfibre wipes?
Stop buying unnecessary household cleaners/products llike fabric softener etc.
So would a bread maker and yogurt maker be worth the money? We only use a loaf a week for ds1s school lunches.
