Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one. I’m at that point of the year where I’m not quite sure where all the time is going! I’m already writing the final meal plan before having a break for a family holiday, and the 8 months since our last one has just flown by. I meal plan to save money, where possible, make the most of bargains and use up everything we have in. I’m loving getting back to meal planning and really excited about normality returning to our life after a busy month. This week I want to try and ensure that we’re having zero food waste and keep avoid expensive takeaways too. Meal planning helps us to stay organised and saves us money too. Every week I share with you my meal plan for the coming week and provide a post 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 too. 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%! For the past week or two I have been shopping at Sainsburys. They’ve sent me some great offers, for extra points and money off too. I’m probably still overspending a little but we are getting great quality food and it is delivered at a convenient time for me.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #96
This week I have planned 7 dinners. I have a new slow cooker to use next week and I’m looking forward to that!
The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #96 are:
Pizza night (homemade pizza dough in the breadmaker)
Chicken in black bean sauce with egg fried rice
Slow cooker chicken and prawn paella with crusty bread
Sausage, mash & onion gravy
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!
