Fairy’s top kitchen savings

3 simple tricks to help you save on your grocery bill


Did you know that shopping and storing food smartly can help it stay fresh for longer and help you save money on your weekly shop?

Fairy knows all about making great savings. That’s why our Fairy Original washing up liquid lasts up to 2X longer than the next best-selling brand. That’s a great kitchen tip straight off the bat!

Find out 3 of our top saving tips and tricks here, to help you keep on saving week in, week out.

Tip 1: Use by/Best before

There’s a difference between ‘use by’ and ‘best before’ dates on food packaging.

‘Use by’ means it may be harmful if you eat it after this date; ‘best before’ means that the quality won’t be as good if consumed after this date. 

People often make the mistake of throwing food away once it has passed its ‘best before’ date, thereby getting rid of perfectly good food!

If you’re happy with the quality of your food and it’s only just passed its best before date, think again.

      Remember: Most food once opened needs to be stored in the fridge. The ideal cool temperature is 0-5ºC.    

 Tip 2: Leftovers

A great way to create savings when cooking is to make a little extra and then freeze it for a later date.

Soups, pasta and Bolognese sauce are all perfect for freezing in bags and if you allow them to freeze whilst flat you will be able to layer them up and utilise your freezer space to the max.

They make for a handy meal when you’re in a hurry and it’s more cost effective to cook a little bit extra than start from scratch.

       Remember: Always label up food bags before you freeze a meal – frozen food can be really hard to decipher! Include what it is, the date it goes into the freezer and how many it will feed (i.e. 1 x adult or 2 x kids). Many a quick kids’ meal can be organised that way!

Tip 3: ‘Offer’ shopping

Admit it, we’ve all been tempted at one time or another by the mountain of promotions and offers in supermarkets, or the coupons we pull out of magazines - but is this really helping us to save?

In the majority of times the answer will be ‘no’ - but why?

Well, you’re only making savings with these offers if they are products you would usually buy.

When you’re walking around the supermarket and you see a tempting offer, ask yourself the following question: “Would I buy this if it wasn’t on offer?” If the answer is no, move on to your usual product. You’ll be amazed how much less your shopping bill comes to each week if you follow this principle.

I'm an offer buyer I shop in 3 of the top 4 shops every week. I write a list and I vary rarely get something not on the list. I go to Asda first as its on the way to Morrisons and then followed by Tescos as I have to drive by t on the way home. Last week I saved over £25 by doing this and getting the items on my list in the various different stores where they are on offer.

Sometimes a product on offer is cheaper than your usual product. I like to buy these products to give them a try. If it works out that I like them better than my usual product (even if it's more expensive) I'm more likely to change.

I cannot believe how long it lasts! Compared to other air fresheners I've used in the past - this by far outdoes them all. The scent is strong enough to notice but not overpowering. Very happy and will definitely continue to use! 5* without a doubt.
