A smart Australian mother has revealed her shopping tricks because she has cut her shopping list in half, while still having enough food to make 10 dinners and lunches.
On Facebook the mother, who took & # 39; two in diapers and one on formula & # 39; indicates that the family of four had previously spent more than $ 250 a week on food.
The post from the mother contained a photograph showing how she had recently completed her family's shopping, with a total of $ 100.13.
& # 39; When we first moved to our own home, we spent up to $ 200-250 a week! So lowering your budget IS POSSIBLE! & # 39; She subtitled her post.
& # 39; This gives us 10 dinners and 10 lunches. & # 39;

What was the mom's meal plan for the week?
* Tuesday: Sausages and vegetables
* Wednesday: Lamb dish
* Thursday: Pumpkinsoup
* Friday: Tacos
* Saturday: minced meat with mash
* Sunday: Homemade pizza
* Monday: Sweet and sour chicken
* Tuesday: Baked rice
* Wednesday: Homemade burgers
The fracture she shared showed a variety of necessities, such as canned goods, brown rice, bacon, eggs, margarine, lettuce, pumpkin, tomatoes, cucumber, and juice.
& # 39; Not included in this photo are apples, bananas, strawberries, and grapes. In the cupboard, I still have plenty of snacks for the kids that I buy over time (granola bars, cookies, cheese, and cookies), & she said.
& # 39; And we make snacks such as muffy muffins, savory and sweet muffins, cookies. & # 39;
The mother said that when it comes to basic shopping, canned tomatoes, salsa, flavor, cream and the like, she always buys more than necessary, if her budget allows, so she is available extra.
(This means) I don't have to buy it for a while. We have endless amounts of things that don't need to be cooled. & # 39;
As part of her austerity exercise, the mother said that she intended to use all the meat she had stored in her freezer so that it could be emptied & ready to be refilled & # 39 ;.
& # 39; For meat, I stock from my butcher and we eat very simple meat – sausages, minced meat, occasional lamb fillets, which I always buy a kg pack. & # 39;
The mother also explained how careful meal planning, including enough cooking for the next day, made it possible to stretch what she had to offer.
& # 39; Everything we eat for dinner, we make enough that both adults also have lunch the next day. & # 39;

The mother's reported toiletries were missing in this week's shop, but said buying these items was something she only did when needed and she already had supplies of diapers at home.
& # 39; Diapers, I am fortunate that both guys agree with the Safeway brands, making it only $ 10 per package and each lasting around two weeks. & # 39;
Those who had seen the mother's $ 100 grocery store on a Facebook group dedicated to budgeting were quickly enthusiastic about her efforts.
& # 39; I wish I could do this. I have three sons (10, 17 and 19) and myself and I spend a minimum of $ 250 a week & # 39 ;, one person wrote.
& # 39; It's ridiculous and a struggle every week. 19 year old eats for three people & # 39 ;.
