Do your weekly shop with friends and benefit from bulk-buy bargains
Big organisations manage to bring down costs by using their buying power to demand lower prices.
And we can do this, too, by grouping together with friends, family and neighbours to bulk-buy everyday staples and beat down the price per unit.
