And if you’ve got food going out of date soon which you know you won’t be demolishing in time, read the label to see if you can freeze it 🧊
#3 MAKE A MEAL OUT OF ‘NOTHING’
If you regularly have leftover food you absolutely no idea what to do with, there’s a free nifty ‘zero waste recipe generator’ tool called SuperCook you can use.
Literally all you need to do is select the ingredients you have, and it’ll chuck out a load of recipes 🍲
Smart, eh? And it even tells you the nutritional value 👏
#4 PLAN YOUR MEALS
By planning your meals, you’re less likely to go over your food budget, and because you’ll already have a list of what to get, you’ll no longer be spending money on stuff you don’t need.
Typical meal planning can be pretty time consuming but we’ve got a hack which is not only more time efficient, but it also helps keep the costs down.
If you follow us on TikTok (if you don’t, hello… what are you doing? Definitely check us out), you'll see we've got a video on how you can use meal subscription services without paying a single dime 🤩
🍗 Check out the recipes on that page and find some you like. When you click on them you’ll see all the ingredients you need listed. You’ll even see a lot of the same recipes have similar ingredients
🥟 Grab a pen and paper and write down the ingredients you need. Then write down each day of the week and the meals you’re gonna make on those days
🍕That’s literally it – now you’ve got a FREE meal plan for the week
#5 SET A GROCERY BUDGET
Lastly, but most importantly, set a grocery budget you can actually stick to.
And if you’re looking for a super simple way to do this, you can download our free budget app, Cleo.
The best money app in the world.
💙 Because it’s ridiculously easy to set up (takes 2 minutes) 💙 Your spending is broken down into categories 💙 You’ll get monthly targets based on your spending 💙 The app makes it easier to manage your bills 💙 There’s an AI assistant to help you stay on track
Once you’ve downloaded the app, select the ‘Budget’ tab and you’ll find the ‘Spend Limit’ section. You’ll then be able to set a spending limit for different categories like shopping, groceries, eating out… basically all the super important things 💅
If you’re struggling to make it to payday and you need help paying for groceries or bills, Cleo can spot you up to $100(eligibility requirements apply) – but it’s best to keep this for when you really need it.

Probably not the words you want to read at the moment. That’s because the big old system your credit currently falls under is pretty important, and pretty unfair. Either that or you have no clue why you should even care about your credit score so this seemed boring. Let’s tackle both.
