live below the poverty line

Saw this on facebook, and thought id give it a go, our main meal costs less than £2.00 usually for 2 adults and 3 children, so im hoping that it wont be that hard a deal to do, and if it raises awareness of how hard it is to eat on so little then doubly good! More info here..shall be posting once a day with dinner ideas and fruagal tips

I have a pantry :D

Anyone who has a larger family knows..more mouths to feed means more food storage required. I have been sooo jealous of peoples pantrys but i have no space to put one..or so i thought. I have an old chimney breast in my kitchen i cant remove it as its a supporting wall, as i was short of space i used it as storage and it was just full of i decluttered it ..went out spent £10 on wood ..also used some recycled wood batten  and heres the so pleased not preety but functional and now means i can get more food from approved food (allways been put off getting too much due to no where to put it!) ..Then of course afterwards the children had great fun taking it back out and stacking it again lol.
