Meal Plan With Me Start Of December 2021 - VIP ONLY VLOG

 

  

This fortnight is honestly just so topsy turvy after coming off the week before. Opening the Bella Joe has been amazing, but its taken a toll on on the house and how I run things, especially when it comes to dinners!!!! I have some ideas on how I can improve and balance things better and I'll be talking more about it over the coming weeks, but for this fortnight I've really tried to stick to simple meats and veggies where I could. Some things I already have and some things I need to purchase. Overall I'm hoping these choices will releave a little bit of pressure

 

 

My rule for setting a grocery budget is $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. I feel no matter where you are living in Australia -  city, country or coastal states - it's a fair $ goal for your budget. For us that is $240 for the main shop in the first week. I then have a flat $70 for the top up shop in the second week of the fortnight. I base that off what ever I set per adult. So in total that is NORMALLY $310 for the fortnight for my family of 4.  

So be sure to watch the matching grocery haul to see if I stay under budget !
