Cheap Meal Ideas and Tips to Save Big on Groceries

Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to have a good and healthy meal.

There are several cheap meal ideas you can make at home and get filled up while also ensuring to include essential nutrients.

Pancakes are usually the go-to most mornings. You can have breakfast ready for the whole family with just flour, eggs, sugar, milk (or water), butter, and maybe one or two fruits.


Whether it's the leftover casserole dinner or freshly made from scratch, a casserole is pretty much cheap and healthy. You can customize it by adding potatoes, cheese, ham, and veggies.


Burritos are pretty affordable to prepare, and you can eat them for lunch or dinner. Don't forget your beans, ground beef, and veggies.


You can make this meal easily with leftover veggies and chicken in your fridge. Boil some rice alongside, and you have a perfectly balanced dinner.

Chicken stir-fry.

Different types of noodles are available; while some might be expensive, you can easily find affordable noodles at the grocery store. You can also add some proteins and vegetables to make your noodles healthier.


Fun fact? You don't necessarily need meat in your lasagna. With the cheese, it is already a yummy meal and pretty affordable. You can make a cheese lasagna—cottage, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese.
