Looking at your grocery budget could be a good place to start cutting your monthly expenses significantly.

While some families are turning to coupons or generic brands, one mom listening to Becky Guiles has found another way to save money and reduce food waste.

On TikTok she is known as “Freebielady”.

Becky spent $1,400 a month to support her family of four, but she reduced that to just $400 by simplifying her weekly menu.

Thanks to a set plan, she’s almost eliminated the question of what she’s going to make for dinner each night.

She and her family developed a simple meal plan they follow to reuse ingredients and limit impulse grocery shopping.

Every night of the week has a specific type of food that they prepare for dinner.

For example, there is always a Mexican dish on Monday evenings and there is a casserole every Tuesday.

But that doesn’t mean they eat the same meal every week.

How she shops

For many Mexican and casserole dishes, Becky uses the same spices and basic ingredients.

This way Becky doesn’t have to buy new ingredients every week.

Importantly, this reduces food waste as she doesn’t buy ingredients she’ll never use again.

Becky said when she goes grocery shopping, she usually has the same items in her cart.

She takes stock of what she needs before she leaves the house and replenishes her usual staples as needed.

In another video, Becky said she opted for a spending cap of $100 per month for each person in her family, which gave her the $400 total budget.

More budget tips

Another TikTok fan shared how she halved her grocery bill by shopping at Aldi.

Grocery Girl Bee describes herself as someone who loves to save money on groceries and offers ideas for clean, healthy eating.

There are seven things she always picks up on at Aldi:

  • bread
  • yogurt
  • eggs
  • fruit
  • italian sausage
  • meat
  • snacks

She has found that these items are much cheaper at Aldi than at other grocery stores.

She also began planning grocery lists before saving even more.
