ARE you bored of the same old staple meals – not to mention the extortionate cost of your food bill?
Well, it might be about time to take a left out of this savvy mum's book.
Mum-of-two Dominika Bien, 33, who is a business mentor from London, is a regular Too Good To Go shopper – an anti-food waste app which helps families feast on bags from local restaurants and shops, including delicious fresh sushi, for a fraction of their usual price.
Recently, Dominika tucked into bags of food worth £60 for just 19, including £20 of sushi for £6.78, £8 of Greggs produce for £2.59 and £10.45 of Krispy Kreme doughnuts for just £3.50.
"I live in London where, especially recently, the cost of living has significantly increased," explained Dominika, speaking to to LatestDeals.co.uk.
"I am a work from home business mentor. I teach people how to start their own online business to generate extra income that so many of us need these days, so I hear about money struggles that people have daily."

The savvy mum explained that once you've reserved and paid for the magic bags of choice, you'll be informed about the collection time.
“You go to the business within the stated time slot and swipe in the app collection of the bag," she continued.
“You are then handed a magic bag – it's that simple! You can't pick the contents of the bag, however in the time that I’ve been using the app I’ve never got anything that we didn’t like!"
She noted how she's recently reserved a few bags in four different stores close to where she lives
"I collected two magic bags from Starbucks, two magic bags from a local sushi place, Hunnu, one magic bag from Greggs and one bag from Co-op," she revealed.
"I paid £19 for over £60 worth of food!"
Along with amazing savings and helping to prevent food waste, Dominika added that they family get the perks of trying some new food that they might have not tried before.
"My time-saving tip would also be to check if there are any other places where you plan to go that offer magic bags, so you can collect bags from different places in one trip," she explained.
"Since learning about this app, I spread the word about it with other parents and neighbours. It is a great help for people who might have temporarily stricter budgets due to all the price rises.
"I truly recommend for anyone to give it a try, I’m sure you will love it!”
