The cost of food shopping has got a lot more expensive this year, and that's been hard to ignore. Cost of living food insights from the Office for National Statistics state: 

The price of food and non-alcoholic beverages rose by 17.4% in the year to June 2023. This was down from 18.4% in May and from a high of 19.2% in March, which was the highest annual inflation rate for over 45 years.”

Hi, I'm Emma! I've been working at MyVoucherCodes since January 2022. Before joining the MyVoucherCodes team, I had already been working in the savings industry for a good few years so I have a lot of knowledge on how to be a savvy shopper, and I love sharing my top money-saving tips. 

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and being out in the countryside, dancing my heart out at festivals, painting, gardening and running. I also adore animals and since 2021, I've been a Website Editor and Social Media volunteer for a cat charity, writing about cats that are ready for adoption, happy rehoming stories and fundraising events.
