How I save money is going Costco with my BF or mum. We share washing powder/toilet paper wipes etc. so then we split the bill. That's how I buy in bulk other wise I would never be able to afford it. Also Vegemite etc there works out cheaper for example 1kg is $12 I think.
We eat lots of leftovers (left over night) ha!! My worst thing is buying food/drink out!!

The cost of food is robbery. No matter how much I try and shop savvy I can't get it below $350 a fortnight without eating crap. That's for 2 adults and 2 kids (1 and 4). I try and do slow cook meals a few times a week and double the amounts...that will do 2 dinners and 1 lunch. But I've noticed even chuck steak is now $12kg :/

@monnie24 I'll hopefully get to experience Costco for myself next year.

We basically live off of canned fish and chicken thigh most of the time. Red meat is about once/week or fortnight, and usually in mince/sausages or slow cooker type cuts.

We are thinking about getting a calf and fattening it up. But even that will cost about $500? Then feed (before slaughter) a couple of hundred. Butchering is about $400-$600 (depending) so about $1300 for a whole beast, but then we don't have freezer space for it :/

My BIL owns a butcher shop and often after a meat challenge on Masterchef or MKR etc heaps of customers come in and ask for quail or lamb shanks or liver etc
butchers can be cheaper than the supermarkets ( depending what you buy) you just have to read the price labels - often supermarket pre packed meat will look cheap as its already packed with a dollar amount on it but read the per kilo price and check the same from your local butcher
