Q. What's happened to your spending since Covid hit?

I have had to shop faster and not smarter-as you never know when things are going to be out of stock. Just like other low income households, you cannot shop around for deals more, so you focus more on if the certain weight or volume of a product is better value to get in a bigger size, in order for it to go further in your meal plan for the kids. With a Baby on formula, the Healthy Start Vouchers only go so far, the money too, and at the end of the month before the Universal Credit comes, it is the Food bank that saves my household from going under.
