When it comes to food shopping, we all want to save money.
One woman revealed how she managed to slash her monthly food bill without a hassle.
Jo Abi, a single mum from Australia, is someone who mindlessly adds items to her basket without thinking about it.
But now the parent has managed to shave £30 off her monthly shopping bill.
Speaking to 9Honey, Jo explained how she removed two items from her basket.
She says how she followed the advice of money-saving expert Cherie Lowe and author of Slaying the Debt Dragon.

She wrote: “I’ve often had to hand back items at the checkout simply because I went over budget.
“And by ‘I went over budget’ I mean I didn’t have enough money to cover my purchases.”
Jo said she struggled to keep count of what she was spending and the hack encourages her to “put back things” she doesn’t need.
The mum also has a way around resisting sweets and treats which are often placed by the checkout.
She added: “When it comes to feeding your family you need to do whatever it takes, and I’ve done everything.
“Make it the job of your kids to return the items while you are lining up waiting for your turn at the checkout.
“Then instead of them spending those last few minutes at the supermarket bugging you for some of the cheap sweet treats crammed at every check out point at supermarkets around the country, they can keep themselves busy trying to return the fancy Spanish olive oil you bought, when no-name will do.”
