PAMEALY MEAL PLANNER AND BUDGET WORKBOOK is a pandemic project of spouses, Yok and Anj Calungcaguin of TMPB, Bakers of Change Inc. PAMEALY was formed in 2022 initially, to incubate and help a community of baking, cooking, and foodpreneur families reach their market online. Now in addition, it aims to inspire families in meal-planning and budgeting by using a workbook designed for Filipino families. PAMEALY advocates in fighting food waste. By using the workbook, families will be able to plan, budget, save time, money, and most of all avoid food waste.

Indeed, during the pandemic, many were displaced from their livelihoods. Many businesses closed included ours. It was a very hard time not knowing what the future could bring. 

During those times, we needed to pivot our business and started something that's more inclined with the situation. 
We also thought of uncertainties that the pandemic brings. It was really scary. 

One day, while Anj is doing our family budget for the week, she ran of paper sheets from her 5 year old refillable notebook. And didn't even bothered to get refills. She's also at times confused of where she wrote the total of what she spent from the grocery. It's messy and unorganized. It made her so frustrated.

I remember, we would miss paying our bills most of that time because we didn't organize. We did not take responsibility of our family's finances seriously. It gave us so much trouble paying our bills that became bad debts, just because we did not organize.

We then realized that writing in Anj's ugly notebook is important. It was our family "bible." It was our family plan written in that notebook.

Thanks to the internet, it opened our minds to create our very own budgeting and meal planning workbook where we also shared to our friends! Then the Pamealy Workbook was born.

We praise the Lord for He truly is a mighty God. He brought our families and communities together to help and support one another through this project!

Now we are sharing it to you and to the ka-nanays community that we are building. We believe that budgeting is for everyone and will truly help families to manage and take control of their spendings, savings, and of course meal planning.

Budgeting is a great tool to help one person or family to become more aware of their money matters. It's also useful to avoid overspending in the grocery and ultimately, avoid food waste.

This year, the Pamealy team is building a new community of budgeting ka-nanays in Quezon City whom are the beneficiaries of the "buy 1, give 1" and Pamealy support reward tier. These mothers are from single income households, earning from Php 15,000.00 below per month.

As of now, we have at least 20 ka-nanays benefiting from this project, but we are looking into more members soon!

With your generous support, our team will be able to give the ka-nanays free workbooks, workshops in budget cooking, savings, meal planning, and food waste prevention.


Tara, mag-Pamealy planning tayo!

We believe that budgeting is for everyone. Whether starting with a small budget or a large one, it is important that one should be aware of their spending and savings.

Budgeting is a useful tool for everyone regardless of the income level. It can also help anyone work toward financial goals, avoidance of bad debts and of course savings.
