Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. If you follow me on Instagram you may already know that we have finally been offered a house. We’ve had a viewing, and accepted it. We’ll be moving in maybe 5-6 weeks, once the house has had some work done and is ready to go. The next few weeks I’m going to be using up what we have in, buying a few fancy ready meals to avoid the takeaway and just doing what I can to keep our spends low and avoid food waste. Meal planning helps us to stay organised and save money too. Every week I share with you my meal plan and provide an area for other bloggers to link up (see below). I love seeing what everyone is linking up meal plan wise, cooking each week and also getting inspiration for my own meal plan. I hope that this will help people to find lots of inspiration, delicious recipes and maybe read some helpful blog posts about meal planning and money saving. Don’t forget to check out my post to help you avoid overspending on your groceries.
I sit down once per week & see what groceries we have leftover from the previous week. Then I think about the different meals that we haven’t had recently, or look online for some inspiration. I then place my Tesco shop online. In the past, I switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and saved over 30%! Lately, I have been using Tesco to shop online. It’s so convenient to click & collect the shopping and the slot I’ve been choosing is only 50p. A great way to get the shopping done, at a bargain price, and not have to spend 1 hour on it myself!

My favourite meal plan from last week was: Our weekly meal plan from Cups of Charlotte – I loved that it is lots of homely dinners and using up items already in! This is a great way to save money.
The Meal Planning Linky Week #88
This week I have planned 7 dinners. We’re going to try not to have a takeaway this week. Last week we got lazy and ate some unhealthy food. This week I’ve bought some healthier alternatives of our favourite meals, to avoid weight gain but also to keep us away fom the takeaway when we’ve got easy meals at home.
The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #88 are:
Fish pie with veggies
Sausage, mash & broccoli cheese – I may serve this with my ultimate onion gravy
Lasagne with homemade garlic bread (so easy!)
Sweet & sour chicken Peking style with egg fried rice, spring rolls & prawn crackers (our fakeaway!)
Pizza night with homemade pizza dough from a breadmaker
Sausages in a bun with air fryer wedges (A healthier, less processed version of hot dogs!)
Dessert: If there is time I’d love to make a Gluten-free cornflake tart!
I absolutely love my *triple slow cooker. It helps me to batch cook, make a separate meal for Daisy and I can even make side dishes too!
