I’m a frugal mum-of-four – how to live off 70p a day & have tasty meals, you don’t want to miss my 20p muffin breakie | The Sun

A FRUGAL mum-of-four has revealed how she manages to make meals for just 70p a day when money is tight.

Christine shared her tips for keeping her food shop down, including her favourite 20p breakfast.

In a clip which has racked up 20,000 likes, the mum said: “I think it is getting crazy sauce here in the grocery store.

“Can you eat for $1 (70p) a day, it’s not looking good?

“What I am going to do today is give you some low budget options.”

Her first money-saving tip was to stock up on oatmeal calling it the “best bang for her buck”.

Alternatively you could try buying the cheapest loaf of bread and 12 eggs, which worked out at around 35p a day.

Christine said on her Frugal Fit Mom account: “That is a week of two pieces of toast and two scrambled eggs.”

But her favourite breakfast choice is using corn muffin mix and a banana to make a tasty baked breakfast for 20p.

She said: “Would you believe me if I told you you could make breakfast with that?”

Christine advised one skill “everyone should learn” to save money is making bread.

She said all you need is flour, yeast and salt.

The mum: “With no special tools and no special skills you can make my no-knead, hands-off artisan bread.

“How many loaves can we make for $4.84 (£3.82) [for the ingredients] compared to $1.82 (£1.44) for a loaf at Walmart?”

In the clip, she showed how she made 13 loaves of bread out of her ingredients, which worked out at 37 cents (29p) each.

She also advised that you should always have rice and pinto beans as “pantry staples” for tasty and affordable meals.

One of her favourite cheap meals is her “chicken tortilla soup”.

She adds chicken to a tray and sprinkles taco seasoning on top – before cooking on the grill or oven.

Then she adds to stock, seasoning, onions and makes her soup.

To finish, she adds tortilla chips on top for a cheap and tasty meal.
