I’m needing to cut back to save money. I’m looking for any tips to do with food to help save/cut back our food shopping.

Ask your question

  • Great ideas. Thanks ladies.



  • Buy in bulk & freeze!



  • Meal plan and only buy what you really need, not that 1 peace extra just for “maybe i’ll need it”



  • Mince meat is cheap, high in protein and really versatile. Try bolognaise with zucchini noodles, chicken meatball butter chicken with brown rice, chilli con carne quesadillas, Bun Cha (Vietnamese meatballs) with vermicelli salad, or a classic burger.



  • Make sure you put your extra cash into a savings account the minute you get paid to avoid over spending!



  • I do a food plan each week, write out my shopping list and then go on the woolies website to see how much it comes to before I actually go shopping. That keeps me accountable and less likely to purchase extra items. Oh and don’t go up every aisle, skip the ones you know you don’t need anything from.



  • Growing home produce is also a good saving and making preserves.



  • Buying in bulk and menu planning saves our family money.
    Cooking in batches and freezing meals is a good saver too.
