Meal planning and price increases

October 28th, 2012 at 01:07 pm

I got a letter from my power company, Scottish Power, informing me that their prices will be increasing from the start of December. Great.

As for my menu, I think this is what I will make this week:

Monday: macaroni with garlic ciabatta bread
Tuesday: herb and garlic chicken with potatoes and veg
Wednesday: sausage casserole
Thursday: tuna and sweetcorn pasta
Friday: leftovers for me (hubby at work)

    Oh, that stinks about the power rates going up! It seems they never lead their happy little way downward, do they? I hope that you have some insurance of appliances that are easy on the energy usage. Good luck! (Menu sounds great, by the way...)

    Those meals sound good AND pretty low-cost! Do you have a weekly food budget? Could you put whatever is left over from that budget in a jar or something each week? I find that motivates me to meal plan and try to keep grocery costs down. (Plus I waste less food because it helps me remember to check the fridge for perishables that should be used up each week)

    Jane it's usually about 40 per week we budget.
