Menus at low prices: plan better to save time and money

In order to help our readers deal with the repercussions of rising food prices, among other things, our new collaborator Myriam Gendron, creator of the Simply Food site, offers a menu each week at low prices from the best grocery discounts in the week.

Grocery discounts from January 5 to 11, 2023

It's the return of the routine... and the menus of the week! To quietly pick up the pace, I wanted to find you a menu combining comfort and a little touch of color.

The holidays are expensive, but they also often come with lots of leftovers! To complete your menu (or improve it) in an economical way, I encourage you to empty your fridge a little and reinvent your bottoms of pots, bags and dishes in January!

This exercise can not only lighten the weight of your grocery bill in the weeks to come, but above all will allow you to start 2023 on a good footing. Take the opportunity to clean out the freezer and the pantry... you'll probably make some great finds there!

We greatly underestimate what we have on hand at home, but we often have a great playground. And reducing food waste is my number one weapon to limit the impact of inflation. We do not necessarily pay less, but we buy – and we throw away, above all – less while maximizing the money invested.

Good poop!
