Challenge For This Weeks Food for the Family

It’s been a while I know.

Life happens, keeps us busy, and you even forget you have a blog let alone write in it.

So here it is...a CHALLENGE.

I would love to save more money and I think one of the best ways to do it is by taking a good look at your eating habits. We spend a lot of money here on food. I mean, after all, we are feeding 9 adults every week. Every day. Well most days. Sometimes they eat their own food, or sometimes they go out. But generally, 9 adults.

Even if I buy nothing for the rest of this week except milk and bread, I will be happy.

I have already ordered a Marley spoon box and every Friday I pickup 3 boxes of fruit and vegetables from a company called box divvy. It’s low waste and local farms produce. I spend about $100 to $140 on these boxes. I am sure I could make that less.

I only bought the Marley spoon box because we got it for almost half price with the credit they owed us and the discount code.

I am about to take stock of the cupboard and fridge and work out what I am able to cook for the week. I will allow about $50 for the rest of the week for small top ups.

I need to get rid of a lot of food in the cupboards. That is my goal.
I need to cater for vegetarians as well as meat eaters.

I am excited to have food cupboards a little roomier.

Next week I will post some recipes and how it went.....so, are you with me?

Comment below if you are wanting to join along with this challenge.

Here are links to a few recipes I have found that I will be using.

All soups. They look easy and quick to cook.

Breakfasts will be toast, oats or wet bix.

That’s about if for today

Until next time.
Lots of it
