How would you fancy an extra fifty quid in your pocket?

Well apparently that’s what us Brits are throwing away in food every single month. To put it in context the Asda Income Tracker shows us that the average family has just £144 disposable income each week at the moment so an extra £50 a month would be a welcome boost.

Government research tells us that we throw away over 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink every year. And yes that even includes wine! Well not in the Walker-Palin house…

Not only would eating all this food save us £50 every month but it would also remove the environmental pollution equivalent of 1 in 5 cars. So worth going after whether you care about the environment or just want to waste less cash.

So how do you save £50? The government research shows two main ways, preparing just the right amounts of food and making sure you eat it before it goes off. I’d recommend shopping with a list too – or why not try shopping online.

Did you see our Asda Magazine article this month or hear it on Asda FM?
