I'm just wondering if anyone can give me any tips to meal planning. I'd really like to be able to get organised as well as save money, so I'm looking into budget meal planning I guess
I'm thinking of starting by writing down all the meals I usually cook, and grouping them according to their main ingredient, e.g. mince, chicken...
I'm thinking that this way I can make sure that I can buy things in bulk and cook a few things a week from the same ingredients, e.g. Cottage Pie and Spag Bol.
Does anyone have any tips for me?

Definitely write out a whole list of meals you make/enjoy eating. I recently got the woolies app (if you shop at woolies). When I scan my everyday rewards card, the app tells me when stuff I purchase regularly is on sale. I then base my meal plan around this and other catalogue items.

I use the meal builder pro app, you add your own recipes ( it gives you the nutritional break down too) it is categorized into meat, fish, vegetarian, snacks etc and you can then add whatever recipes to your weekly plan plus it creates a shopping list!

I have heard that you should also try to include one new recipe each week/fortnight from a recipe book or magazine (or friend).
If it is successful then include it again next month to increase your recipes.
