We all know how our financial health can impact our mental and physical health, which is why we asked psychologist Dr Bec Jackson for her practical tips and advice for regaining control and caring for your mental health. From acknowledging your emotions to seeking help, Dr Jackson goes through it all and even offers tips on how to talk to your kids and reassure them during times when finances are tight.

Dr Jackson advises that you should take simple steps to reduce unnecessary spending to help you feel more in control of your finances, including:

  1. Monitor what you are currently spending
  2. Check out any direct debits you have
  3. Set a realistic budget for family living costs
  4. You still need to have fun, so investigate free entertainment in your local area.
  5. Get creative.

Beat your grocery budget with our supermarket comparison, 30 day Budget Meal Plan and meal prepping tips

We know how much mums stress over the family’s grocery budget, and trying to juggle healthy food choices with fussy eaters or family allergies can be difficult. This is why we took on the challenge of comparing how each of the major supermarkets in Australia stacked up when it came to some of our family-friendly favourite recipes to help mums like you. We cooked up our Mexican Lasagne, Pumpkin and Feta Tart, Peanut Butter Chicken, Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies and Snickers Mouse with ingredients bought from Coles, Woolies and Aldi to see which one did it cheaper and help you decide where to shop.

We’ve also got top tips to help you get the most out of your food and avoid food waste, including buying veggies frozen, watching your portion sizes and meal planning to manage the budget better. And when it comes to meal planning, we asked a couple of mums how they plan and prep their meals for their family and how it has helped save them over $100 a week in their weekly grocery budget.

To help you get started shaking up your family’s meals we’ve got a 30 Day Budget Meal Plan with recipes that would suit all family’s tastes and all cost under $2.50 per serve. Now we know not all families will be able to follow this to a tee which is why we’re offering you all the recipes so you can mix and match in a way that suits your family’s taste and needs. With summer around the corner, we’ve also got some amazing recipes to help you entertain and healthy frozen treats that will cost less than $1 per serving to help keep the kids cool.
