A money-saving mum and son from Bolton are sharing how they saved £30 on their weekly shop by ditching supermarket meats for cheaper alternatives.

Tyler Foulds and his mum Diane have revealed how they have saved on food costs by changing their shopping habits.

The pair put this down to choosing a 100-piece hamper from healthy retailer MuscleFood instead to cut back on meat costs.

Tyler, 23, from Westhoughton, says he learned his cooking skills from his mum who loves to cook homemade, hearty meals for them both.

However, since food prices have been on the rise in the last year, the pair have struggled to put food on the table without it taking a massive chunk out of their household budget.

The Bolton News:

While inflation has started to dip, food prices still remain high causing the mum and son to shop around for their ingredients.

Tyler said: “I used to spend over £50 at the supermarkets purely on meats, £75 in general when including veggies, rice and the rest.

“Now I spend £60 on MuscleFood every two weeks and then nip in the shop for the side dishes, which I spend around £15 on.

“Since swapping where I'm buying them from, I'm enjoying meat a lot more in my meals and there’s so much you can do with them.

“Having enough protein is important for me, as I go to the gym six times a week and need the energy for when I’m working long shifts.”

Since ditching the supermarket meats, he’s saved almost half of his weekly food budget and has made him enjoy his meals even more.

Ashleigh Tosh from MuscleFood.com said: “It’s fantastic to hear how Tyler and his mum have cut their food budget massively.

“We love hearing stories of how people have saved money by ordering with us as our mission is to help provide people with delicious food for a lower price.”
