Starting a meal making co-op is an excellent way to save money each month as well as saving time preparing meals. What is better than saved money and time in a busy household? Happy, healthy kids – and because you are choosing the meals together – you can ensure your family is eating well.
To start a meal making co-op, you will need to find at least two or three other interested families. You will be very surprised that once people see what you are doing, how quickly they wish to join you. Don’t be surprised if eventually you have to turn people away.
You will also need to start thinking big. You will be preparing several meals at the same time. You will want to find things that are easily frozen and can be heated up in less than an hour with no preparation at the other end.
You will need to get organized, have a spare freezer at your disposal for extra storage space, and be prepared to enjoy delicious foods you didn’t have to make yourself.
Tomorrow I will discuss the exact logistics of how this whole co-op thing works so you can see exactly how something like this can save you time and money in the kitchen.
