I was given a free month subscription to E-mealz and we’ve been using it for 1 1/2 weeks. E-mealz is a meal planning site For $1.25 a week, they send you your menu plan based on the size of your family, where you want to shop, & health needs.
We have 8 people in our family but the largest size E-mealz has is 4-6. We’ve been easily able to adapt this to our family without spending much more money. Some recipes we don’t need to double. For instance, yesterday we had chicken crunch. As long as we had lots of rice as a side, we could stretch the casserole.
I really like E-mealz. It does all the hard work for me! I don’t need to make a menu, find the sales, or make a grocery list. They even include the recipes. It’s already done! I just need to add lunches, find out what’s in our pantry, & go shopping. It’s great. Click here to see some sample menus & grocery lists:E-MEALZ Easy Meals for Busy and Frugal Families .
Is it worth the $5 a month? Yes, we think so. We’ve saved so much money on groceries this past 2 weeks. It’s amazing! Something we’ve been trying to do but are unable to is now happening–and we’re not even using coupons! We’re also eating a lot more fresh fruit & veggies. I really like that aspect. We plan on continuing our subscription after this month is over. I’ve told several people about it & recommended it to many.
The only thing I dislike (and that just somewhat!) is that E-mealz doesn’t include lunch options. However, it certainly isn’t difficult for me to add 7 lunches (2 or 3 being leftovers!). We typically add homemade pizza, hot dogs, and such.
Ok, now for the really exciting part–the giveaway!!
