THE CRUCIAL LAST STEP
TO STICKING TO BUDGET
AND SAVING MONEY!
.I say this all the time BUT meal prepping
is the last crucial step toward saving more money
on your groceries and sticking to budget!
Meal prepping takes time, organisation and dedication,
but if pays off big time once it's done! How ever much time
you put into your meal preps is to how much you'll benefit!
SAVES YOU TIME!
SAVES YOU MONEY!
SAVES ON WASTE!
and best of all..
IT KEEPS YOUR SANITY!
Things that were cooked this meal prep were spaghetti,
meat balls which were made for spaghetti,
then as leftovers we use it for:
Baked potatoes, Mexican eggs and
jaffles (it tastes great in them!)
Sausage rolls which I made even cheaper this fortnight!
Using normal sausages and skinning them,
then making them into sausage rolls.
I made 18 large sausage rolls.
Beef stroganoff on a budget,
it can be done! We think of our favourite meals
and then think of ways we can make them cheaper.
As I shop fortnightly, I will buy snacks in lots of two.
Two lots of tinned fruit, two packs of teddy biscuits, and so on.
I will divide them up for week one and then week two.
Week two snacks are then popped away high
out of sight so the kids don't see.
This is such a benefit, as I have found the snacks go further.
I find that if I divide snacks (especially ones that don't come
individually wrapped) they go so much further in my house.
As I have learnt, there are much more sustainable
ways than using ziplocks (which you can still wash out and reuse,
plus you can recycle soft plastics). They are called:
The BioBag reusable storage bags

I am so thankful I popped up my grocery post
and I had a few people comment on all the plastic,
which certainly is something that I can change. They are
not that expensive and something that will last me. Plus they
are compostable, the first ever apparently!
Thank you to that wonderful lady who gave me the link!
