I’ve just been taking stock of the week’s proceedings and I just thought I’d share the following with you;
Here is what I’ve spent on food since Sunday when I made the chicken;
£2 sage and onion stuffing (I used half)
So by focusing on reducing my food waste I spent £20.73 on a total of 15 meals – impressive hey?
I saved money by;
- Growing my own vegetables e.g. the carrot and parsnip soup
- Making more meals out of the last one I’d made
- Not buying any more food, even when my fridge started looking a bit sparse
- Being really mindful of portion size and what I’m going to make the next day
If you find the whole food wastage thing a frightful bore, then you’re probably motivated by finances at least – well my friend think of the money you can save!
As I mentioned in my newsletter today, I’ve done such a great job of saving my pennies, I’m off for a spa with my friend Jackie tomorrow – now that’s what I call a good incentive!
