A mum has shared the simple trick she uses to keep grocery bills down and help keep the fridge organised for her family-of-six. 

Catherine, from Victoria, creates her own DIY snacks in bulk to save money and time, rather than purchasing pre-made store bought snacks – her number one budget rule.  

The mum stores all of her homemade snacks inside Verrine glass jars in a variety of sizes that preserve and store food in a sustainable manner.

The mum-of-four spends her Monday morning prepping snacks while two of her kids are at home, one is at school and one is at kinder. 

Catherine creates her own grab-and-go fruit cups with grapes, apricots and berries that are each stored neatly on the fridge shelf for her kids. 

Next to the fruit cups is space that’s left for homemade egg and vegetable cups that are another ideal snack for her kids when they’re on the go.

To make the cups she whisks together grated carrot, zucchini, egg, salt, pepper, ricotta and nutritional yeast, then pours the mixtures into jars and cooks them in the oven on 80 degrees for an hour.  

She stores the jars in the fridge along side perfectly aligned milk bottles, Greek yoghurt containers, cream cheese, egg cartons and other meal prepped goods.

The bottom right corner of Catherine’s fridge is always left empty because that is where the kids’ lunchboxes are stacked ready for the next day.

‘Honestly this fridge is a thing of beauty,’ a fellow mum wrote. 

‘I have fridge envy! [Your fridge] is so neat,’ another wrote.
