Meal Plan With Me | Middle Of June 2020 - VIP ONLY VLOG

 

Schools going back, things are changing and prices have gone up! My mind is going a million miles an hour trying to get myself into a new motion. On top of that I’m also trying to start to build up my emergency stockpiling again …. but I’ll talk about that in another video :)

 

 

So anyway ... this fortnight I'm shopping a couple of days early because Joseph finally starts school in two days!!!! I have realised I need a few things right now to prepare lunch box’s this week and cannot wait into the week. Going through my freezer I have plenty of frozen meals and meats so I don’t feel the need to purchase any meat this week which is awesome as I know that will save me a ton of money! With the saved $$$ I’ll put it towards purchases for my stockpiling (***eeekkkk shreaks with excitement !)

If you saw last fortnight my budget update, you would know that I increased my budget due to the changes happening in our country (the world) right now. This fortnight after sitting down and calculating the general grocery costs across the country I have made a more firm change in the method I use to calculate my grocery budget.  So my general 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 $163, so be sure to watch the matching grocery haul to see if I stay under budget !

So that is where I'm at this week. Be sure to check out the matching grocery haul vlog if you want to see what I got and how I went with staying within my budget.
