Meal Planning Monday: Winter Menu, Week 4

2 Feb

So this is the last week in my Winter Menu Meal Plan Rotation.

Week 4:

As I’ve explained we will work on this 4 Weekly Meal Rotation from November 2014 – March 2015 and then switch to a Spring Menu.

It really has helped keep us on budget and made the shopping so much easier as I have all the ingredients on the back of my laminated menu cards ready to go.

I stopped going into the supermarket and now use the online delivery this stops me impulse buying, enables me to check the cost of my shopping as I go, as well as the added bonus of saving time and energy on top of money.
To save further; Tesco also have £1 delivery slots on orders over £25 so I always use these slots.

I’ve been looking into ‘couponning’ and an app called ‘Shopitize’ but I am as yet to find these helpful in anyway… Do any of you use them or have any tips?
My problem with them all is we do not eat the things they have coupons for. We are gluten free so that cuts out all the regular breads and biscuits, we have a milkman (which works out cheaper) so never use the milk coupon and the rest are brands and products we would not use due to even with a small discount they aren’t cheaper than the alternatives.

On the topic of Gluten Free/Coeliac Disease.
All my Menu plans are based on being gluten free; so are more expensive anyway than the average persons would be.

An example:

Tesco Penne Pasta

Admittedly Pasta you can get on Prescription but most people still have to pay for their Prescription (£8.05 each item in England, although Doctors tend to do multiples of one item for food allergies). This was just an example of a common food used as a cheap option in lots of thrifty recipes.

Obviously making homemade is cheaper but do any allergy sufferers have any tips for money saving?
