Woah almost everything on your lists is (way) more expensive here (NL). But apart from that, good on you. It’s inspirational in the way that I now I spend a bit too much on food (I am able to afford atm but still, should I? And I’m always aware things change, including finances) and for moths have been thinking “I should just make it a sport to cook some cheap(er) meals during the week, and maybe splurge during the weekend”. And seeing your plan I’m convincing myself once more: I really should. 🙂


This is great! Thank you for taking the time to break down the costs. It’s very helpful.


You’re forgetting: 1 McDonald’s mc chicken sandwich 1 additional McDonald’s mc chicken sandwich


The tuna looks fabulous never thought of putting pesto in it! Thank you for sharing.


I make a soup that I swear by! Basically, I clean out all the veggies from the fridge (carrots, celery, zucchini, etc.) Add whag I have in tins (beans and chickpeas especially). I pour in a tin or two of crushed tomatoes, some chicken bullion paste (optional, but very affordable at Costco) maybe add some leftover meat. The key to make it all come together is a big handful of Cajun seasoning. Then, if I have it, I grate cheese on top. Bake it in the oven at 350 for an hour and it’s amazing!
