Save money with meal planning

Saving money to cover your next home project or a down payment for a future home purchase can be daunting. Planning your meals is a simple way to get started saving.

Meal planning can save the average family of four $50-$200 a week on groceries and eating out. Here are some tips to get started:

  • Plan your meals for the coming week each Sunday and aim to visit the grocery store just once each week. This saves you money and time.

  • When planning, reuse ingredients so nothing goes to waste. For example, if one recipe calls for just half a bunch of carrots, plan another recipe later in the week that will use the other half.

  • Check your pantry and refrigerator before making your plan for the week, aiming to use all of your current ingredients before buying new ones.

  • Plan your meals so that you make enough for leftovers, useful for packing lunches so you can avoid eating out at the office.
