Walks for every Auckland landscape

Communications Team from Auckland Council

Auckland – it’s hard to imagine a more geographically diverse region. Whether it’s rugged black-sand surf beaches, dense native forest, rolling green pastures or urban city centres, there’s something different to see and do.

Can you feed a family of five on $60 a week?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Are you in need of some tips for cutting down your grocery bill? Auckland blogger Stacey Sampson might be able to help.

After a financial emergency drained her and her husband of all their savings, they were left with just $60 in their bank account to feed their three kids.

Now every month she does a "cheap week" that helps cut costs and minimise food wastage. To read about Stacey and her food tips, click here.

"This month we've done it twice to save some extra for Christmas," she says.

Is this something that you do in your family? Or is it something you'd like to try? Share your thoughts, or your own grocery tips to help your neighbours, in the replies below.
