The $50 Weekly Shop Weekday Dinners
Rating: 4 / 5
How much do you spend on your average grocery shop?
Apparently an Australian family of four’s weekly food bill is $165.
Which is why Jody Allen’s new recipe book, The $50 Weekly Shop Weekday Dinners, attracted my attention. It follows her bestseller, The $50 Weekly Shop, which charted her journey of keeping her family fed for four years while unemployed.
This time around she’s focused on renovating the mid-week meal. It’s a book for anyone wanting to find clever, achievable, creative and enjoyable ways of reducing the cost of keeping the family fed—and enjoying the benefits of living more simply.
Allen doesn’t promise gourmet food, nor that a reduced grocery bill will happen without discipline and planning, but she does believe we can change our thinking and shop smarter.
