Midweek meals on a budget can be such a task with a demanding toddler wanting my attention, being a taxi to the teenagers all with their own different tastes in food, It really is the busiest time of the day!
Shopping in advance and meal planning has become part of my daily routine. My new slow cooker is on daily its perfect to have a hot meal ready for when people come home at different times. This week I discovered Jack’s Supermarket and armed with my shopping list I came home with enough products to make five tasty midweek meals and some little extras too.
WHO ARE JACK’S?
Jack’s discount supermarket is part of the Tesco family, and have stores all across the UK. Most products in-store are branded Jack’s goods but they also stock some Tesco items and other large brands like Pampers and Persil.
Every two weeks there is a fab five fruit and vegetables at outstanding prices currently 6 Gala Apples for 79p and Aubergines at 59p. Jack’s are passionate about supporting and working with regional farmers, growers, and producers, with 100% of their fresh chicken, lamb, beef and milk from British farmers.
They don’t only sell food but I found some amazing Halloween and Christmas decorations and stocking filler gifts. At the moment they are stocked with some great branded toys for Christmas like Barbie, Little Tykes and Peppa Pig, so as you can imagine my trolley didn’t only contain food today!
Midweek Meals On A Budget
I managed to get everything bar one item from Jack’s which was pretty impressive as it’s a modest-sized supermarket. I found the meat Isle very impressive and I got my 5% lean minced beef for my bolognese nearly one pound cheaper than what I normally pay in my regular supermarket. I picked up a spatchcock chicken for a midweek roast for £3.99 and I normally pay £5.00 for a much smaller chicken.
For really lazy Midweek meals on a budget and my most impressive purchase was any 2 pizzas, a side which I chose a hot chocolate fudge cake and 3 small garlic dips all for £5.00, yes £5.00 and the kids loved it and it was half the price I pay for at my regular supermarket.
For packed lunches, I grabbed some handy sandwich meats, breadcakes, and salt your own crisps – 6 bags for 69p. Even at other budget supermarkets, I pay a lot more than this.
I managed to get my whole week’s shopping for £27 less than I would normally spend, that’s over £100 savings every month which is a mammoth saving and I’m not having to lose any of the quality.
I honestly was really impressed with just how much I was able to get for my money at Jack’s and so far have been super impressed with the quality. The kids are happy and my purse is happier which is a win, win for me. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
