I don’t know about you, but I LIVE FOR THIS STUFF.
A mother in England has revealed to SWNS that she feeds her family of five (plus dog! Plus dog!) for just $63 AUD. Bonkers.
Danielle Ross is 30, has three young sons, lives in Colchester, UK, and is basically our new supermarket hero. She’s gained a loyal online following of 22,000+ fans who hang on her every receipt.

And don’t think Ross is peddling any old chip buttie – she manages to whip up healthy meals for her young family on a shoestring budget. From chicken Caesar salad to lasagne to lamb koftas, Ross is clearly practicing some kind of budget witchcraft…
What she’s actually doing is this: shopping at low-cost supermarkets, planning out a list before arriving, keeping a close eye on discount deals, and packing out meals with cheap fillers like pasta or bread.
She makes her husband bring a packed lunch every day, collects vouchers like a trooper, and blends her veggies to get maximum use out of them.
All up, Ross reckons she’s saving around $650 a month. GUYS. THAT’S ENOUGH TO BUY A WHOLE AISLE IN ALDI.
Ross says that involving her kids in the cooking process allows her to introduce new, low-cost items to their household menu.
“My eight-year-old Ollie is really fussy,” she says, “but when he cooks with me he can try new things more readily because he’s cooked it.”
