Kathrine Lynch from Busy Happy Kids is a whizz at cooking up savey meal solutions for the household by shopping at PAK’nSAVE. You loved her 50 school lunches for under $100 challenge, so this time we asked Kathrine to put together some slow cooked meals that are savey on your wallet and your time!

Just defrost the night before you want to cook up the meal, then transfer from the fridge to your slow cooker. Remember to think about food safety with freezer times - we recommend you plan to cook the frozen meals within 1-2 months of freezing.
