When my husband and I first began our debt payoff journey, we had to find ways to cut our expenses so we would have more money to put toward our debt.
One of the ways we did that was by slashing our grocery expenses. I started meal planning each week, began cooking the majority of our meals at home, and used coupons.
All of those things made a big dent in our grocery bill, freeing up money to put toward our goals.
Once we started having kids, we still needed to keep our grocery budget low, but it was a little harder for me to make as much food as before, simply because of other responsibilities.
I didn’t realistically have time to clip coupons and go to multiple stores every week anymore, and I couldn’t make every loaf of bread from scratch.
As our family has grown, it has become even more important to be able to make quick and easy meals during the week, so that we can have dinner on the table without going through the drive-thru or ordering pizza all the time.
We still have a relatively low grocery budget, thanks to the power of meal planning and having simple meals we can prepare!
A couple of years ago, I invested in an Instant Pot, and I’ve been loving it ever since!
Many of our favorite slow cooker meals have been converted to be made in the pressure cooker, which is a fabulous way to save time! And with so many frugal meal options, it’s easy to save money with an Instant Pot, too!
