Having an organised life has become really important to my family in recent months. With me working on building up my online business and illness in our family we’ve got lots going on. By meal planning we are able to cut down on takeaways, eat healthier meals and take advantage of special offers at the supermarket to save money. Being able to look at a meal plan, and choose what we are going to eat, takes some of the stress away from our day.
Life can be stressful at times. Having a meal plan to hand just removes some of the effort and time wasted thinking about what to make for dinner and looking for ingredients. By meal planning before I 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 every night.
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.

This week I have planned 6 dinners. This leaves one day for using up leftovers or possibly eating out. We like to be a little loose with our meal planning, to try and avoid the possibility of food wastage. Also, we don’t eat our dinners on set days, as I just decide each evening which meal we will be eating the following day.
Fancy seeing the shop for this weeks meal plan?
