Why do I spend so much money on groceries? Watch

I end up going to Morrison’s about every 3-5 days and spending £15... it’s draining my bank account.

I am just buying for me and my parent. When I spend £4 on chicken it only lasts me for one day....

It’s annoying and depressing now I don’t even want to look at my bank account.

I’m completely cutting out cereal and not buying that and instead buying oats as that’s way cheaper.

I am pretty lost...

That's not that much, I thought you would be spending upwards of £30 every few days.

Get frozen chicken if you want to make it cheaper.

Is the veg proper or already prepared?

It's not that much tbh what you are spending.
If you want to cut down then budget and meal plan and only buy what you need?

Why don't you navigate to other shops like Tesco, Sainsbury's, Aldi etc and set yourself a budget.

Plan a schedule when you need to go shopping, like setting yourself a firm date. For example, on Monday's you go to ______ supermarket and spend £30-£40 pounds on_____ (when you plan your shopping list etc).

Yesterday I brought 15 eggs and I think that will last me about a week.

Milk lasts me 1 week (the biggest one) blue)

Ah frozen meat? I have to get halal so I go butchers. I find that the halal at Morrison’s is more expensive

I m sure I ve seen frozen halal meat in Asda but it might be a local thing. Is that the value brand of eggs?
