Fulfil your fish and chips craving in lockdown with our cash-saving tips


I LOVE a fish and chip Friday – and they are even more precious during lockdown.

And you don’t need to cast your net too wide to catch a good deal.

Fulfil your fish and chips craving in lockdown with our cash-saving tips

  • Switch and save: Ditch popular cod or haddock for a different fish, such as pollock, and save money.
    I also waste a lot of my chips, so splitting a large portion saves waste and money. Or you could make like a savvy Saver and reheat cold chips for tea the next day.
  • All the extras: At Asda, Mushy Peas are only 29p — almost half the price of Batchelors, 50p. You could raid your freezer and make your own. Defrost frozen peas, mash them and add butter, salt and pepper to taste.
    SAVING: Around £1 on chip shop mushy peas
  • Go fish: If you want to prep your own fish supper indoors, buy two packs of four large Young’s cod fillets for £6 at Iceland, usually £3.50 each.
    Or, grab a four-pack of Iceland battered whitefish fillets for just £1.75.
    SAVING: £1 on cod
  • Chips ahoy! Making your own chips? Get Morrisons’ 2.5kg of “wonky” potatoes for just £1, compared to £2 for a bag of normal potatoes weighing slightly less.
    SAVING: at least £1
  • Order cash-in: When you are getting a takeaway of any kind through Uber Eats or Deliveroo, my No1 top tip is to remember to go via a cashback site. While the rates aren’t amazing, every little percentage back is money in your pocket.
    SAVING: Around 1-2 per cent back of your order
