Euphemia is known on TikTok for her eye-pleasing videos of cash stuffing and says you don't need to do this for all of your outgoings, but groceries are a good one to pay in cash.
"Transfer paying for your groceries in cash, even if you don’t cash stuff, when you see how much you’re spending in cash it's harder to give away £120 in cash rather than tapping it on your card," she reveals.
Before even starting a meal plan for the week, the budgeting pro recommends writing a list of everything you have in your cupboards, fridge, and freezer.
She then suggests building a meal plan from this and making a list of any ingredients you need to buy.
Euphemia is a vegetarian already but recommends trying to go for one or two dinners a week that are vegetarian to keep the cost down.
