Wealthy woman hacks are all about working smarter, not harder.

Today’s cooking tips save money, but they also save time. Because you’re a busy woman and you have other things to do.

1. Double the Recipe and Freeze for Later

Your freezer is your friend.

Casseroles, meat, and soups are GREAT for adding to your freezer. Then, you can enjoy a home-cooked meal another night without the extra effort.

1. Cook once, but double what you need. Set the extra aside to cool while you eat dinner.

2. Freeze the extra.

3. Pull the food out another day!

2. Make Taco Tuesday a Weekly Thing

A rotating weekly meal plan was the best thing I’ve done to simplify my cooking. (And my life with kids). It saves us hundreds if not thousands a year.

Bonus: A rotating meal plan allows for a rotating grocery list too – which means you take the guesswork out of what you need to buy each week.

3. Utilize Your Appliances

The Instant Pot, Crockpot, and Air Fryer all save you time (no more slaving over the stove). But they also allow you to save money with cheaper cuts of meat. Chicken thighs and pork shoulder turn out amazing in these appliances for much cheaper.

4. Get Your Family Involved

If you live with other people, you should NOT be doing everything. If you are, have a conversation with your family or friends.

My husband does half the cooking, cleaning, and grocery shopping. (Thankfully, there’s no meal planning because of the rotating meal plan). And my kids help clean up too. It has not always been this way, but is the result of mom setting clear boundaries.

5. Cook the Same Thing for Multiple Meals

The moment I opened the Cookbook “Cook Once, Eat All Week.” My mindset was forever changed.

The premise is to cook or chop a large amount of a few foods on Sunday. Then, mix and match for your meals during the week.

For example, let’s say you cook a big pan of ground turkey and chop a lot of peppers and onions. This base can be used for tacos, chili, soups, pasta, and just about anything – without feeling like you’re eating the same thing!
