Looking for more apps to slash your costs? Here are some of our favourites.

No Waste

The free No Waste app lets you scan your food and organise it by expiry date, name or category.

This makes it easier to do the next shop as you can easily see what you are running out of.

Lists can be shared with family so you can give away unwanted food plus you can track how much you are wasting by deleting items you have eaten or that have expired.

The app will tell you how much of your food you have eaten each month and how much money you have saved or wasted.


Are you going on a diet or did you over order items in your latest shop? You can share unwanted food for free among your neighbours using Olio.

Food shared could be nearing its sell-by date, spare home-grown vegetables or the groceries in your fridge when you go away, move home or are on a diet.

You can also share non-food items such as furniture, clothes, toys, household and beauty products.

Users take a picture of the item, post it to the app and then agree where and how it should be picked up with anyone interested.

The app is free for households but businesses have to pay for a service that will take unsold food and distribute it to them.

Almost 10 million portions of food have been shared through the app, which has 2.6 million users worldwide.


Similar to Too Good To Go, Karma lets hungry households rescue unsold meals from businesses at a discount.
