    For months you could buy Heinz soups 4 for £3 ( 75p each ) at Morrisons.
    They were on sale today all priced at £1.39.
    That’s inflation gone mad.

    Make your own.
    Pulses and a selection of veg must be far cheaper than paying £1.39 a tin.

    I made soup from the outer leaves of the Sunday dinner veg which would normally go to compost. Added a bit of garlic and put some black pepper onboard and wow! ****-on!

    Tip. Morrisons own Tomato soup. IMO. Better than Heinz.

    6 bag of Seabrookes crisps. £1 in all the right places. £1.69 in a cheap place in the market yesterday.
    Also on the Seabrookes, some still £1 but only 5 bags and no salt n vinegar. It's robbery man.

    If you like a chunky soup, chicken, veg, beef, then you cannot beat Aldi's version. It is really nice, tasty and thick. And it's about 70p.
    Far better than Heinz which costs nearly double.
    Try it, we love it.

    I’m liking these top household tips, here’s another, if you need to get shut of some rubbish, fill a purple bin liner and leave it at the side of the road, ;)

    I never buy tinned soups...
    I I buy a chicken I always save the cooked carcass after we have eaten the legs thighs wings breast and those 'oysters' (small pieces underneath)
    You can either freeze it in a large freezer bag (dont keep it too long though ) until you have a few leftover carcasses and/or some bones from beef joints/ducketc. . If it a big chicken you can use it immediately..
    Add to a large pan with an onion, stick of celery, a carrot (all roughly chopped) several black peppercorns and a little salt and cover with water and simmer on a low heat . I know gas and elctric are expensive now but we are talking low gas. ideal a pressure cooker speeds things up.

    It is it is what restaurants do they have a stock pot on the go pretty much constantly. After a few hours you have a great base for soup. You can let t it reduce or top it up from time to time. Just dont let it boil dry (sort of thing you can do on a weekend).
    This is the base for all sorts of soups... Strain it and skim off the fat using a baster. Add vegetables, or add sliced mushrooms with some UHT cooking cream and some cornflour mixed with water (if you dont know how/cant be ar*ed to make a roux) to make creamy mushroom soup but best to remove from heat if adding cream to stop it curdling 'splitting)'. Try adding some chicken pieces and sweetcorn, or some garlic, chilli and tomato paste with vegetables to make spicy soup. There are load of different soups that cost very little using leftovers from the fridge using the stock that costs very little (the gas being the biggest cost albiet minimal compared to tinned stuff.. Most will also freeze or keep for a few days in the fridge and you can microwave it when needed.

    Do you reckon this would go well with olives (asking for a friend)?

    And to save the time it takes to go to the doorstep, pick up the milk and carry it to the fridge, you could site your fridge in the garden, near the gate. The milkman can then deposit the milk straight into the fridge saving you time and hassle.
