Being organised is really important to my family life. Being able to spend 1 hour a week working on a meal plan, grocery shopping and prepping fruit & vegetables saves us time and money. I love being able to be organised, have a healthy dinner and save money too. Meal planning helps us to reduce the amount of takeaways we eat, make healthier meal choices and also make the most of special offers at the supermarket. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #5.
Having a meal plan to hand removes some of the effort for me and avoids time wasting thinking about what to make for dinner and looking for ingredients. By meal planning before we go shopping I’m able to make a list of the ingredients that we require and ensure we have everything to hand to make dinner each evening.
By holding myself accountable, with a meal plan, I am making healthier choices for us. We are cutting out on the takeaways, preparing food from scratch and saving ourselves money too. I have switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and this has helped our grocery budget too.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #5
I will be planning 6 meals each week. This leaves 1 day per week for using up leftovers, dining out or visiting family for dinner. We don’t have set days for our meals, as I prefer to decide in the morning which of the meals we want and what fits in with our plans.
My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #5 are:
Salt & pepper chicken with rice
My triple slow cooker is really helpful when I want to make us a slow cooker dinner. I’m able to make us a main dish, a side dish and cook a separate meal for Daisy too. Most of this week’s dinners are Daisy friendly so I won’t have to do that much extra cooking for her. This is always a great week for me!
