Here’s our top 3 tips to staying on budget when you’re trying to do the family shop with the kids:

1. There’s no need to go crazy. Stick to your meal plan and shopping list. It’s easy to get distracted when everything is cheap. Shopping weekly means you are in control.

2. Use your phone to do a quick check to see if you can find the product you want cheaper. Is what you’re buying really good value for money?

3. Downshifting can still work even if your family are vegan. Start by buying the supermarkets own brand and go up the brand by brand depending on taste.

We have our favourite vegan breakfast go-tos. (We aren’t vegan but we love them!) These can all be made on a budget and brought from discounters.

1. Rolled oats – Whatever nut you like join it with your milk substitute and add maple. We add whatever fruit is close to going off for the extra sweetness or frozen fruit.

2. Breakfast fried rice is fab and can be made into leftovers. We cook ours with coconut oil and add onions, nuts and honey. We make ours sweet but I’m sure it would work as a savoury dish too.

3. Quinoa is perfect for days that you’re in a rush. We batch cook ours so we can grab it quickly. We add soya milk (but any alternative milk works) and then go crazy with the cinnamon tub or lemon bottle.

Using those kitchen staples can really help bring down the cost of your weekly shop. Spices, grains and coconut oil last a long time and are very inexpensive.

Vegan Breakfast Ideas on a Budget

If you’re struggling to keep your bill down then here’s our top tips to help you keep more money in your bucket.

What the * means

If a link has an * by it, then this means it is an affiliate link and helps S4SM stay free for all. If you use the link, it may mean that we receive a very small payment. It will not cost you anymore that it would normally.

You shouldn’t notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. The items we write about are NEVER dictated by these links. We aim to look at all products on the market. If it isn’t possible to get an affiliate link, then the link, or product is still included in the same way, just with a non-paying link.
