WEEKLY MEAL PLAN

27 February 2017

Meal planning is a guaranteed way to save you money when doing your weekly shop, which is why I am adamant we need to start doing more of it. Week after week I have a vague idea but my opportunity to get to the supermarket is usually quite spontaneous so lists haven't always been remembered, thus resulting in of course over buying and under using. Each week I am ashamed at how much we throw away that's unused, past it's sell by date, it really is a disgrace. So starting today I'm planning our weekly meals, ordering our online shop accordingly and I'm determined to cut out the over spending and wastage. Wish me luck.

Monday - Cauliflower curry 
Tuesday - Chicken rarebits with new potatoes and brocolli
Wednesday - Spaghetti bolognese
Thursday - Fajitas 
Friday - Sweet and sour pork.
Saturday - Chicken and spinach pasta

So that's my weekly meal plan, I've left Sunday blank just so we have a day to play with as quite often we'll visit my Nan or parents for tea, or maybe even eat out. As you can see, all the ingredients we actually have already in the cupboards I have crossed through, not doing this before hand was leading to me umming and ahhing at Tesco and picking up items we already had 3 of at home. I was unorganised and silly. I'll definitely report back and let you know how it went, if we popped to the shop to pick up anything and whether I have reduced my food shop bill this month.

  3. I do meal plan yet still end up with so much wastage. Weekly shops are costing a fortune and I really can't understand why!

  5. Well done! I've been doing a weekly meal plan for a few years and it's saved us time, money and the constant 'what shall we have for dinner' question, then realising we haven't taken anything out of the freezer to defrost in time. We now only buy what we need for the week ahead, unless store items are on offer, but I make sure they are included in the next weekly meal plan...nothing stays in the cupboard for more than two weeks!

  6. Meal planning is a great way to save money on your grocery shop and also time since you aren't constantly trying to figure out what you are making for dinner. It can be a bit of work to stay on top of it, especially until you get in the habit, but it is worth it in the end.
