Easy Ways To Stretch Your Dollar

If you’re feeling the pinch in this current economic climate, you’re not alone. Here’s how you can get the most value for money with your Minifarms shop!


As the cost-of-living crisis continues, we’re not here to pressure you to spend more or experiment with new out-of-budget products.


Instead, we want to help you get more bang for your buck!


There are a few easy ways you can keep your spending in check, while still feeding your family hearty, good quality meals.  


Firstly, consider what cuts of meat you choose to purchase. The less common cuts, like chuck steak, chicken thighs or wings, are inexpensive, great for slow cooking during winter, and happily feed a family.


Root veggies, like potatoes and carrots, are also cheap and in season. They work well roasted, mashed, or incorporated in a range of meals including stews, pies, and casseroles.


It’s also smart to opt for bigger veggies, like a whole cauliflower, which can extend beyond one meal and be used throughout the week.


Plus, don’t forget to take advantage of the affordable staples available in the Everyday Pantry section of your app.


Chickpeas and lentils, for example, are a great, inexpensive alternative to meat, and work well to bulk up your meals without breaking the bank.


If you consider these tips and tricks, you’ll find you can get more value for money on your weekly shop – every dollar counts!


At the end of the day, we’re all in this together. If you have any other budget-friendly shopping hacks, be sure to share them with your fellow Pod Members.
