The Meal Planning Linky Week #161 Meal Plan

Affiliate links in this post will be clearly marked with a *. Clicking one of these links means I earn a discount or receive payment.

Good morning, Happy Friday and I hope you’re keeping well! This week I’m sharing a pretty easy meal plan as we have half a Hello Fresh delivery covering half of the weeks meals!

I’m also going to be using up some items from the freezer, to ensure that we’re using everything up before it passes it’s best, and to save a little money on the final few days of my grocery budget for January too.

This month I’ve set a budget of £250 for groceries. Recently we have used Hello Fresh a lot, which has been great, but they can be a little expensive, so I’m just going to have ONE box this month, using some credit I have. If you’ve never used them you can *Grab £46 off your first 3 boxes as a new customer.

This week I’m really looking forward to cooking a few new, fresh recipes, that we’ve never had before. I am hoping that my husband will get involved with some of the cooking too!

Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. It also helps us to save money and avoiding overspending on groceries.

I’ve been meal planning for several years now pretty much weekly. It is a great way for us to save money and I really enjoy having a nice variety of meals to choose from each week.

Each week other lovely bloggers link up their meal plans, to try and share recipes around with one another, inspire each other and hopefully drive a little bit of extra traffic too! I really enjoy running this linky and seeing what meals everyone is cooking that week.
