Money Saving Hacks for the Kitchen

At EveryPlate, we're all about quality food on a budget. That's why our experts have researched the best tips the Australian public have already proven work.

We surveyed Australians to see which of our money saving food hacks they'd implemented in the last month. We then asked how much money they'd saved in a month to project how much money you could save each year by incorporating these changes into your day-to-day.

Five Food Hacks to Save Food & Money

Cut down on takeaways and eating out

Close to 50% of Australians have already reduced the amount they’ve eaten out in the last month which has saved them almost $300 on average. By opting for cooking at home and reducing your Friday takeaways, you could save over $3,000 a year.

Eat less meat

Eating more vegetarian meals can be good for the planet but, apparently, it can be good for the purse strings, too. 27% of Australians have eaten less meat in the last month and saved just over $100 a month.

Bulk cook your food

Of course, EveryPlate is a big fan of planning your meals out and being prepared with a batch cooking option on the EP menu allowing you to easily buy more servings. 23% of Australians have given it a go in the last month and at a saving of over $480 a month - this hack could save you almost $6,000 a year.

Grow your own vegetables

In the last month, just over 20% [21%] of Australians have become green-fingered, opting to grow their own food. They also saved $275 a month doing so! What’s better than a new hobby that saves money and has food involved?

Use a meal kit delivery service

Recent price comparison data from EveryPlate has revealed that Aussies nationwide can save up to 45% by choosing its meal delivery service instead of the supermarket!

In fact 54% of Aussies said their a major reason why they end up with bill-shock at the grocery checkout (source: PureProfile May 2021).

Every year on average, food waste costs the Aussie economy about $20 billion dollars (source: OzHarvest). To help reduce food waste, EveryPlate delivers the ingredients in the right quantities needed for each recipe.That means there’s virtually no leftover ingredients that end up sitting in the fridge for weeks, and of course - less money wasted.
