WITH rising energy bills and Christmas less than 100 days away, we're all trying to save money where we can.

One savvy mum is keen to help, taking to social media to share her entire week's meal plan for a family of four – and it costs just £25.


Mum-of-two Eilidh Wells recently took to Instagram to share how she feeds her kids' breakfast, lunch and dinner on a budget. 

Sharing five recipes with her 24,700 followers, the pro-money-saver said: “The October break can be a bit of a stress for families when you’re trying to stretch your budget to include breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks.

"I made the most of this shopping by meal planning ahead of time and buying some ingredients I could use across several meals. 

“Having last night's leftovers for lunch always helps too.”

Fans rushed to thank the mum-of-two for her ideas, with one writing: “Big Aldi shoppers here! Great savings always, but meal planning defo all the way.” 

Another said: “Just copying and pasting this onto my meal plan for next week.” 

In the video, Eilidh shared everything she got in her haul, coming to just £24.74.

This included fresh meat, microwavable rice, garlic bread, a range of vegetables and seasoning packs.
