Doesn’t it seem like the price of groceries just keep going up and up while wages…well, not so much?

It can be hard to feed your family healthy meals on a tight budget.

Every. Single. Day.

Meals that the whole family will like.

That don’t cost a fortune.

And that don’t take ages to prepare.

So how do you balance all of this: your budget, your family’s tastes, and your time – and stay one step ahead of the hungry hoard?

As a busy mum of two kids, I know how hard it is to balance eating well with time and money.

I know what it’s like to look into an empty fridge and then peer into an empty purse and wonder what we’re going to eat for the rest of the week.

Over the years, I’ve always returned to the one strategy that never fails to work. That allows me to feed my family healthy meals and stick to our grocery budget.

And that strategy is meal planning.

After nearly 20 years of meal planning (gosh, that just made me feel old), I’ve tried all the meal planning strategies out there. I’ve taken the best strategies I’ve learned, streamlined them to make them easier, and I’m sharing these strategies in my book: Plan Cook Save.

In this book I share:

  • How to work out the right grocery budget for your circumstances
  • How to significantly cut your grocery spending while still eating well
  • How to get organised so you spend less time shopping and cooking while still eating healthy, whole foods
  • How to create a meal plan without spending ages staring at a blank page, wondering what to write on it.

This eBook is short and to the point with actionable steps.

Each chapter clearly outlines what you need to do for successful meal planning.

And as a bonus, there are FREE printable worksheets to help you create your grocery budget and meal plans without fuss – making the whole process even easier.

I need to tell you though… this isn’t a recipe book.

It’s also different from other meal planning books because it’s not a bunch of set meal plans that you have to follow.


Because you may not like what I eat. Or you may have special dietary needs. Or the ingredients might not be in season where you live. Or your local supermarket may have awesome specials that you’re better off making the most of.

You can see why a set meal plan that someone else gives you isn’t going to work.

Instead, this eBook is a complete meal planning strategy. You implement it based on your tastes, your needs and your budget.

The book takes you step-by-step through the meal planning process so that you can tailor make your meal plans so they are 100% perfect for you and your family.

The Plan Cook Save strategy is for the tiny price of $8.
