SHOPPERS are sharing snaps of foods they’ve chosen from Asda’s new Just Essentials range on social media.
But it can be hard to think what to do with the yellow budget goodies.
Savvy Hollie Hutchinson, 37, who writes the blog thriftymum.com, has come up with a meal plan to help you make the most of supermarket bargains.
Check out his five midweek dinner ideas that will feed a family of four for a total of £10.32 over five days.
Prices are based on the quantities you will need to use rather than the cost of a full pack.
Anything left over can be used for lunches or saved to prepare dinners for the following week.
