MANY of us are trying to save money on our food shop as food prices increase.

One woman has found a simple way to do so with her savvy tip.

Julie, from the US, has been trying to cut down her families food costs and has shared the journey over on her TikTok account, You Need a budget.

Julie's simple tip, which has cut her monthly food shopping bills in half from £900 ($1200) to £480 ($600), is to simply use all left over food.

She said: "I hate to admit this, but I used to throw away leftover mac and cheese all the time because my kids don't like it.

"But lately I've been trying to be more mindful of how much money I spend on groceries which has naturally led me to cut out and eliminate food waste."
