Menu Plan

We still eating homemade things from the freezer hence there being two items on the menu on some nights as there are only one portion of each in the freezer.

HM pizza and salad (didn’t have the energy or feel hungry enough to make them so we had baguettes from the freezer with ham/cheese)

Roast lamb/Beef stew, mash potato, HM Yorkshire puddings and veg

Spaghetti Bolognese and garlic bread

Roast chicken/chicken pie, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and veg

Salmon and cous-cous

HM Chicken curry and naan bread

HM shepherds pie, baked beans and veg

Garlic bread

SFT - Thanks for the much needed hugs :) You do fantastic to manage a budget of £60 each month, it would be great if we could but it would be such a struggle but I’m defiantly going to be more planned with the shopping. Does your budget include cleaning products/toiletries? We haven’t decided where to go yet, but will keep you posted xx

Christine – Thank you for your encouragement.

Saving £’s – It was so nice seeing the smile on mums face, I guess you are never to old (they are both in their 80’s) to be told off by your big sister!

Mum – Thank you for your support xx

RC-Hope today went ok. Did you pop in to see your mum?

Menu planning is such a good idea-it saves time and money. You are doing brilliantly! Such an inspiration to me. Our budget includes just food and household. Although I haven't needed any toiletries for ages, I will need to buy some shampoo this week, I've been really good and nearly used up all my shampoo...even the little sample bottles. So I'm treating myself to Treseme..for a budget shop of course!

If you need any help deciding where to go on holiday, I know someone who could help! LOL!

Think your doing fantastic on your budget, am really impressed, especially as i've just spent £30 on food!

Also, wanted to comment on yesterday's post, am really sorry to hear bout your mum but am glad that she got to chat to her sister and its made her happier. I know it must be tough, but think you are doing such a great job being there for her and making the most of the time you guys have got.

Take care of yourself.xx

Hi there, I also menu plan and it's been a massive help to me, not even so much for the keeping costs low aspect but for the organisation side of things. I much prefer having a list of meals to choose from and getting what I need out of the freezer the night before. It's a new feeling for me, being in control!!!
