Let the savings begin
My philosophy is that unless you are financially independent with no debts and enough to retire in the bank, they you need to look for ways to save money until you reach that goal.
Saving doesn’t have to be hard, it can be as simple as using these 3 section food containers. So how can you use them?
- Pack lunches in them rather than buying lunch every day.
- If you don’t have enough leftovers from a family meal to make a second dinner for the family but have enough for one meal, fill up a container and use it as a quick dinner or snack for someone, or even to bring for lunch on another day.
- If you have a bit of extra time, make double the amount you need for dinner and fill up these containers so you have enough to feed your whole family on a busy night rather than ordering take-out.
Since these Bento style containers are freezer safe, microwave safe (take the top off first) and dishwasher safe they make saving easy and convenient.
What I often do is batch cook meals when meat goes on sale. For example when ground beef goes on sale I will do meatloaves, meatballs and hamburger patties for the freezer. Sometimes I will then cook 2 meatloaves for dinner and then divide up the rest into containers for instant meals for the freezer. Other times when chicken goes on sale I will make Chicken Pot Pies and big batches of Chicken Fried Rice for the freezer. I will cook a turkey and make turkey pies and and frozen turkey dinners for the freezer. At the end of the day you have good food, at significantly less cost and you don’t waste food.
