Feeding yourself on £1 a day may seem like an impossible task, but Lesley (the author at Thrifty Lesley) shows her readers how to make it a reality.

Her aim is to be a comprehensive resource for anyone looking to feed themselves cheaply with meals suitable for any occasion. Whether it be for Valentines Day or a weekly meal plan, Lesley’s blog has recipes guaranteed with nutritional values included. Who knew chicken liver parfait could be made for a pound!
Lesley’s recipes provide a useful base for weekly meal plans which can then be combined with our blog post on saving money as a student, which explains how to avoid excess spending on grocery shops.
