Meal Plan With Me | End Of July 2020 - VIP ONLY VLOG


It’s time to do another fortnight’s meal plan. Not much has changed where lockdown restrictions are concerned for us, however we have herd on the news the possibility of a stage 4 lockdown could occur at some point. It may, or it may not, who knows! The thing is it’s something to consider with everything going on, so it’s making me very conscience of keeping my freezer stocked whilst also smartly using some of it for for this fortnight’s meal plan. I’m also wanting to mix things up a bit, so some different food choices to what we’ve been having lately is on the cards!


My general budget rule is now $70 per adult (persons aged 14yrs+ because we all know that teenagers eat as much as adults at this point!) and $50 per child (under 14yrs) in the household is the main grocery shop budget for a fortnight. With then a flat $70 for the top up shop in the second week of the fortnight. So in total that is $310 for the fortnight for my family of 4.  

Keeping all this mind my budget for my main shop is $240. I’m currently estimating that I will spend around $213, so be sure to watch the matching grocery haul to see if I stay under budget !




Some tools I used to do my meal planning were:
