Tips on reducing your grocery bill

It was great to read all of your comments on Facebook on how you reduce your grocery bill.

I thought it would be a great idea to put the tips altogether in one place and share with you all.

And here are all the fantastic tips.

Always shop in your own pantry and freezer first

I plan my menu based on what is on special at the supermarkets

I bake once a week and try to make most things for the kids lunch boxes as healthy and frugal as possible

Only eat fruit and veg when they are in season.

Stock pile items that will keep and that I know I will use, buy them when they are on special which ultimately saves money.

Shop at Aldi

Make everything fom scratch

Buy meat in bulk when on sale and meal plan from your freezer

When I sat down to do the meal plan for last week I implemented one of the above ideas

Always shop in your own pantry and freezer first

If you would like to download my menu planner you can do that here.

If you have any other tips please I would love you to share them below in the comments. I will keep updating the tips from the comments so all the tips are in the one section.

You can share these, but please link to this post and not to the direct download file.

Please do not alter these and share them as your own. These are © 2012 - organising to make life easier

Tupperware Drawer Organisation

Our 2 year old thinks the tupperware drawers are wonderful to play with, and when its not summer here we don't use as many tupperware containers. During summer we cut up lots of fruit. So we have extra containers in the drawers which means some reorganisation is needed.

So here are the before photos



And here are the after photos



I know these drawers will only look like this for a couple of days but I will enjoy them while it lasts.
