Starting right here, right now let’s bust the myth that meal prep is all about weight loss. If you are looking for ways to recycle those leftovers, pay off credit cards, build up your savings account, or simply learn how to budget you can start with preparing your meals in advance.  Meal prep involves preparing a bunch a meal at once on a single day.  I know, I know but “variety the spice of life”, right?  Planning your meals in advance doesn’t have to be boring, bland, or void of variety.  You can always spice things up and save money in the process. 

Let’s look at the numbers for a moment.  In 2015 VISA conducted a lunch survey which included 2,033 Americans and found that the average spent on lunch in the U.S. is $53 a week or $2,746 a year, and for some, more than $9,000 a year!  Do I have your attention now? 

Check out some simple ways to save money on your meals after the holidays:

  •      Consider planning meals using leftovers while freezing the rest
  •      Create soup and sandwich meals
  •      Use leftovers for a casserole
  •      Use leftovers for stews
