"I am now on a single disability pension and have no money left after his cremation etc. After I pay my bills I'm left with approximately $100 per fortnight for food. I do the majority of my shopping at Aldi, but I'm finding it hard to work out a meal plan to get me through. I don't have a computer and really don't know where to begin. I was hoping for your help.

Sometimes just start the old fashioned way with a piece of paper and write down all the meals you enjoy, then decide if meals are using similar ingredients like mince can make spaghetti bolognese cottage pie, meatballs , then you can buy bulk sizes which is always cheaper then you divide and freeze or have a cook up and make into small meal sizes and then freeze in portions for easy meals. This also means you are not having mince day after day but can put it in once or twice a week in a different way so all meals are not the same. Also never waste any veggies by making up a soup with whats left at the end of week or fortnight and change it up by using different stock chicken or beef adding beans or cheep cuts of meat. once you have some of these ideas you can make 2 fortnight lists and rotate them adding and changing things as you go.
