A few great ideas for picnicking on a budget!

Hello PicnicShoppers!

Enjoying a traditional picnic in the countryside doesn't always have to be a top end affair involving Champagne and foie gras. It's very easy to have exactly the same fun without breaking the bank. After all, the main appeal of eating al fresco is to get together with friends and family and enjoy the great outdoors!

A leftovers picnic is a brilliant way of picnicking on a budget. Take the meat left from the family roast and add a little mustard or mayonnaise and you're on your way already! The high tea staple, cucumber sandwiches, are another great yet cost efficient addition to a traditional picnic. Ripe end of season tomatoes are also a real picnic enhancement, 'eaten in a juicy sandwich with a little black pepper. Pack together with a few chocolate fingers or tea cakes and you're ready to get out and enjoy the great outdoors!

You'll relish the virtuous sense of not creating food waste, the kids can join in and the ambience will be relaxed. Wash it all down with some tea from the thermos or even with lashings of ginger beer. Cost-wise your family picnic will be bargain basement, taste-wise it should be ritzy!
