At the beginning of our financial month, and the freezer is pretty run down, I have a few luxury items, but need basic ‘building blocks’ for the months meals. The pictures are from earlier this year – I buy like this approx every 3 months.
We have a card for our local Wholesaler, Bookers, I don’t shop there nearly as much as I used to do when the kids were younger, but I do still buy some things in bulk – Chicken Thighs are one of those.
For just under £18 I buy 5k of Chicken Thighs- these are split into packs of 4 and frozen.
I have mentioned it before, but a few years ago I bought a heat sealer from Lidl, it was about £20 and is really useful. I use Lidls freezer bags too, they are really thick and can be clearly marked, which helps in a few weeks time when you are looking for specific items 😉
Each pack will used for various meals throughout the month. Curries, stirfrys, roasts, casseroles etc – Building blocks 😇
