I’d like to start saving money with meal planning. I don’t intend to go overboard with the meal prepping that has been so popular lately.

What I plan to do

Instead I want to simply cook larger portions and place them in containers. I can keep them in the fridge for up to about three days.

(If you are not reading this post at www.howisavemoney.net or in your feed reader, it may have been stolen from my site.)
This will ensure I have lunches for work for those days. Then on the third day I can prepare another batch of food for the next two days.

I really don’t like eating food that I know has been sitting around for a few days. I also don’t want to eat the same thing for an entire week. Usually you see this happening with most meal prep posts.

I think even if I simply eat leftovers the second day this meal planning will help me to save money. Knowing that I have a meal ready to go will prevent me from buying something at work.
