Weekly Meal Plan

Planning our meals and snacks in advance is a great way we can save money when food shopping. We can decide exactly what we need and avoid buying spontaneously in the supermarket. Planning for meals that involve cooking from scratch and in bulk with loads of fresh produce compared to ready made meals makes a huge difference!

Reducing Meat Consumption

Reducing our meat consumption and bulking our meals with legumes and veggies is another great way to save the money.

There is a range of delicious vegetarian meals - even some mimicking meals that usually feature meat like spaghetti and lasagne!
