I get bored of eating the same food regularly. I plan my frugal food spend around my main meals, and lunches are usually left overs, soups, sandwiches, something on toast or, in summer, salads. There isn’t much spare money for breakfasts and, except oats, which I buy once a month, I don’t buy anything special for breakfast. We eat what we have. Often it is things that need eating up eg we will have toast with something if the bread is going stale, or we will use up the veg on the turn or use left overs. We still have lovely breakfasts and a lot of variety.
Here are some of things that we have eaten this past year, and it shows that you can have enough variety to have something different every day of the month, even without much money.
