It's not cheap feeding a family of five and those in charge of the weekly food budge will always be on the look out for ways to save a pound or two.

This busy mum-of-three has shared her shopping tips which has helped her knock her food bill down from £100 to £20 - a massive saving of £80 a week.

Kayleigh Hughes, from Grantham, told the Daily Record how her extreme money-saving tips are saving her a small fortune, feeding her family of five for just £20 - working out at just £4 a head.

According to MySupermarket figures, the average cost of a weekly food shop has rocketed to £86 per household - and that's before you factor in everyday essentials such as toiletries on top.

And in a climate where the cost of living is only rising further, it can pay to get creative on new ways to cut costs.

The mum-of-three shares her savvy shopping tips

So what is this mum's secret? Kayleigh says it's all down to stockpiling and coupon hunting - which she says can be extremely rewarding.

"I usually spend £40-£50 per week for a family of five, which includes two adults and three boys, aged five, three and eight months," the supersaver told Mirror Money.

But in her latest attempt to knock down her Asda bill, she says she went on a serious coupon hunt.

Three top tips to finding supermarket coupons:

  1. Pick up free in-store magazines and leaflets - these often have freebies and voucher codes for new products that you can redeem in store.
  2. Join supermarket loyalty schemes - Tesco, for instance, will often send out coupons for your next shop, often based on your spending habits.
  3. Use coupon websites such as www.extremecouponing.co.uk to see what discounts are available before you leave home or shop online.

"I don’t often buy branded products unless they are on offer or I have a coupon," she said.

“My latest shop using coupons from Supersavvyme, manufacturers and Asda price guarantee vouchers totalled £97.89, however, I paid just £19.76. I also had £2.59 in Asda Price Guarantee vouchers - so spent just £17.17 altogether for everything."

Super Savvy Me is a website owned by household manufacturer Procter and Gamble. Each week it's updated with dozens of new coupons across all brands owned - from Fairy washing-up liquid to Lenor and Head & Shoulders.

Kayleigh's tips to save on your supermarket bill

It's not just coupons Kayleigh's become an expert at. Here are more of her money-saving tips on everything from clothes to cleaning products, and of course food:

1. Building your stockpile

A big part of saving money is having a stockpile. You can stockpile anything that won’t go off. You can pay up to 70% less by checking clearance stands and only buying items that are less than half the original price.

2. Coupons

Slash the cost of your food shopping by learning how to coupon. Check out websites, magazines and food packaging. Write letters to manufacturers too telling them how much you love their products and you may get a money-off voucher in return.

3. Voucher codes

Know what stores are offering discount by checking websites like PromotionalCodes.org.uk, HotUKDeals and social media pages, to find all the current available deals, flash offers and even free delivery codes.

4. Cashback apps

After doing your weekly food shop and once you’re back home, check your cashback apps. These allow you to check if there’s cashback on any items that you have bought - allowing you to MAKE money from your purchases.

Try cashback websites TopCashback and Quidco .

5. Yellow-sticker items

Heading for the discount aisle at the supermarket is a great way to find bargains. You can find some great yellow-sticker items that you can freeze and re-use whenever.

7. Upcycling

By painting and adding a bit of wallpaper to an old chest of drawers or a desk that’s heading for the skip, you can make practical and stylish furniture for a lot less money.

8. Charity shops

Charity shops can be a great way to find top-brand items for pennies. Always keep an eye out for labels and recognisable brands.

9. Car boot sales

You can grab hundreds of bargains every year by buying and selling at car boot sales. If you’re going to buy, always arrive just after it opens or just before it closes in order to bag the best bargains. Be prepared to haggle.

If you’re selling, avoid labeling your items (as this can put people off), bring lots of change and carrier bags and be prepared for hagglers.

10. Meal prepping

By planning ahead you can cut out the impulse trips to the shops, which always turn into a trolley full.

Once you’ve done your meal plan, write a list of ingredients you need for the week and go online before you head to the supermarket, so you can check which store has the best prices.
