Most of us give ourselves a nice pat on the back when we make a menu for the whole month or have our food shopping for the week done.

But one Australian mum has put us all to shame by chopping a YEAR'S worth of vegetables for her family to save herself time every evening.

Her freezer is now stuffed full of zip-lock bags containing an incredible 65kg worth of veg.

Her stash includes, 20kg of potatoes, 15kg of carrots, 15kg of sweet potatoes and 10kg of tomatoes as well as courgettes and pumpkins.

The former chef splashed out Sh. 6,000 (£45) on the vegetables at a wholesale market and says she will use it all in the months to come, reports the Sun.

Posting on Facebook, she writes: "Veg prep for what feels like the next year.

"Carrots: sliced, roast chunks and chopped. Potatoes: chunks, sliced and diced for mash. Onions: sliced, chunks and onion rings.

"I do it so I don't have to waste time every night chopping up veg for dinner, as we all work and I have university and the two kids have after school sports.

"It's not pre-cooked, just raw, and the roast vegetables turn out great. Just thaw them out the night before - and the diced up vegetables are perfect for the slow cooker and spaghetti etc."

She's not the only mum who impressed other parents with her incredible prep skills, and earlier this year people were wowed by a woman's snack organisation.

The mum-of-two spent 11 hours prepping a staggering amount of food for her kids to enjoy over the next few weeks. Describing herself as a "first-time kindy mum", she says extreme preparation made her feel like she had "sold her soul".

She now has bags filled with 60 pizza scrolls, 28 sandwiches, chopped oranges, cookies and snack bags of grapes.

She's frozen all the food and will just take out whatever she needs for her two kids each morning.
