Caitríona Redmond worked in the property industry until she was made redundant the day she returned from maternity leave in 2009. This heralded a personal transformation from 'high-flying' PA to reluctant stay-at-home mother. As the prospects of finding another suitable job dried up, Caitríona turned to using the skills she had used in her job and those she had learned at her grandmother's and mother's kitchen tables to run the household on a tight food budget of €70 per week for a family of five. In this book Caitríona shares her tips, tricks and recipes with the reader to help them save money and feed their family well on a budget. All the recipes have been extensively tested on her friends and family! The book includes budgeting tips and menu plans which enable families to pick & mix from favourite meals, keep variety in their diet and make the most of the food that they cook.
