This mum has prepped a weeks worth of meals for her family of 4 all for under $150

This 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is all about budget-friendly meals for the whole family so we asked our Meal Prep Queen Kaitie Pursell to do what she does best and get prepping.

Kaitie set herself the goal of getting her week 1 shop under $150 and she did just that with all her groceries costing just $139.91 and the meals will feed her family of four for a week with extra ingredients to use for week 2 or beyond.

She says, “I set myself a challenge for the week 1 meal plan. I wanted to keep everything under $150 and I am happy with my $139 shop. I have more than enough to feed my family of 4 for the week with extras leftover!”
