30 Day Budget Boot Camp:  Planning Ahead Can Save Big!

30 Day Budget Boot Camp: Planning Ahead Can Save Big!

 

Take a look at your basic budget and find the categories for both groceries and gifts.  Today I’m going to show you how to save on both by planning ahead!

If you want to save money on groceries, then one thing you can try (other than using coupons – which will be discussed later during our bootcamp), is monthly menu planning!

Have you tried cooking make ahead freezer meals?  If you would like to spend less time in the kitchen or drive-thru, and save a boat load of money (even without using coupons!), then it’s time to start cooking ahead.  Here is one example Make Ahead Freezer Meals for a Month – specifically for Wegmans shoppers.  Even if you don’t shop at Wegmans, you can still make ahead these 20 recipes and use the shopping list at your own store.  

If you aren’t a fan of making ahead and freezing meals, you can still create a month long menu plan and shop just for those items.  Check out these Healthy Menu Plans where you can shop for 25 Meals at Aldi’s for less than $150!  There is a general meal plan, a slow cooker meal plan, and even a gluten free meal plan to choose from!

  1. I do the same thing, I love on-line shopping because I can find so many deals and then everyone gets super spoiled on their birthdays and Christmas. Not to mention, I can spread the Christmas gift costs out over the year instead of all at once when there is already so much going on!
