Credit Crunch Munch June 2016

June already?! That came about quickly! There’s no better time for me to be hosting this months Credit Crunch Munch linky. The clue is in the title, it’s a linky all about frugal food recipes, and is a great way for bloggers to link up. It’s also really flexible and easy to join in too, which I love.

This month sees us taking my first ever week off with no plans or holiday booked! We’re at a crucial part in our home renovation project so all money and time is being sapped into that. This means no time or money to spend on holidays, and making sure I make lots of affordable recipes, so we can have that last push to try and get the house where we want it to be. It’s also the first month I drop some hours in work to try and restore some of that work-life balance and get the house finished, and also to afford me more time to spend on the blog. It’s for all these reasons, that I am really excited to be hosting June’s Credit Crunch Munch.

It really is one of the most flexible linkys/blog hops around so I’d encourage you to get involved. In case you’re uncertain how you’d want to link up there is a list of ideas to get you started below. You may want to take a look at these 50 easy ways to reduce food waste too, for some tips on storing, shopping and reusing your food.

Things you might like to consider could be:

Dishes using cheaper ingredients – cheap cuts of meat or vegetarian
Meals using leftovers
Meals using up the ends of packets
Substitutions of cheaper ingredients
Packed lunches
Meals that use less energy to cook
Pressure cooking
Slow cooking
Faster cooking – less oven time for example
Batch cooking for the freezer
Sustainable foods
Food you have grown yourself
Meals from reduced food in the supermarket

To take part, simply blog about any money saving idea or recipe that is vaguely food related. We do a full round up so I will be mentioning all the recipes that are submitted.
