SHOPPERS are sharing snaps on social media of food they have picked up from Asda’s new Just Essentials range.

But it can be tricky to think what to make with the budget yellow-packet goodies.

Blogger Hollie Hutchinson has come up with a meal plan to help you make the most of the supermarket’s bargains

Savvy Hollie Hutchinson, 37, who writes blog thriftymum.com blog, has come up with a meal plan to help you make the most of the supermarket’s bargains.
