Slimming World Money Saving Ideas
If you are new to Aldi or even to budget food shopping then our top five tips are:
1. Set a meal plan
Let everyone pick a meal to fill up your meal plan. Use our Slimming World posts from above to help and takes the thinking time out of it. You can use our free meal plan templates from our Resource Vault here, which is free to join.
2. Go through your cupboards
This takes into account your kitchen staples. A full list of kitchen staples can be found here but normally food like chopped tomatoes, passata, tomato puree, wholemeal bread mix, noodles, Frylight, eggs, dried mixed herbs, garlic, vegetable stock and pasta all count as staples.
If your family like to try something different then have a look at Spicentice*. They offer quick meal ideas through spice packs. They are vegan and slimming friendly and serve a family of four. If you are a beginner cook then these are perfect as they have the exact ingredients on the back and really detailed instructions on how to the meal.
We tried them for a week and loved them. If you would like to give Spicentice* a go then remember to use my code LASAVE20 for 20% off at the checkout.
3. Use Your Slow Cooker
Having a slow cooker to hand means that you can cook loads of meals while you are out. You can also make bulk out slow cooker meals easily with cans of kidney beans or baked beans.
Have a look at our 31 Aldi Slow Cooker Recipes For The Whole Family that has loads of ideas. (These aren’t all Slimming World friendly)
If you don’t own a slow cooker then we use this one, which is a Morphy Richards Slow Cooker Sear and Stew 460012 3.5L Black Slowcooker*.
4. Eating More Veg
Meat and fish are currently pretty pricey. Try grating vegetables into everything to try and bulk it out then freeze any leftovers for the next day. Also, frozen vegetables are great as you only need to use what you need.
5. Waste Nothing
Easier said than done with kids, but by being really strict, you can reduce what goes into the bin.
Anything that goes on your shopping list needs to have a meal allocated to it.
If your kids don’t eat much, then try serving everything all together and getting the kids to pick how much they want.
They can always come back for seconds, but it means you can freeze whatever isn’t eaten for another time.
