Learn how to meal plan effectively so that you never throw food away and save money each week.
Do you find yourself getting to tea time and never knowing what to cook? Or at the end of the week throwing away pounds worth of food because it's gone off or not been used? Do you find yourself overwhelmed with choice at the supermarket and then get home to find you haven't really bought anything for meals for the week?
Reduce Your Food Spend is a step-by-step guide to how to effectively meal plan and create a stock pile so you never throw away food (and money) again. This course shows you exactly how I plan our weekly food shop and how I have built our stockpile. We currently spend between £30-£50 a week on food as a family of 3 and never have any food waste.
This course makes food shopping a breeze, with no stress needed when you're writing your list. It should see you save money from the first week, with consecutive savings over time.
The reason why I am such a big fan of meal planning and creating a stockpile that actually works, is that we are aiming to retire early. By saving money in all areas of life, including food spends, it means we can save more towards our dreams.
Perhaps you are saving for a holiday? A new car? Some decorating? Maybe you get to the end of the month and there isn't any money left. By making savings in just one area of your household finances, you can make a big impact on your savings. If you manage to half your food spend, just imagine where the money could actually be going!
This course is designed to help you do just that; get your food spending under control and have your money going on other, exciting things.
