A good friend of mine asked me what the best way is to save money on groceries. A lot of answers came to my mind: shop sales, use coupons, have a stock pile… I do all of these things and they save me a lot of money, but the first thing that really helped me save money on my groceries was emeals.com!
I used to have the hardest time coming up with dinner ideas. Then, if I did decide what to make for dinner I was missing key ingredients so I couldn’t make it. I was shopping without a plan so I wasted money and food. So frustrating! Then about 5 years ago I found emeals! Emeals provides a week’s worth of recipes and a shopping list that makes shopping easy! They plan their recipes around what is on sale that week so that you get delicious meals every day and save time and money! I know what I’m making for dinner, and I’m shopping with a purpose, I’m not buying a bunch of food we won’t eat or spending $200 and having nothing to make dinner like I used to do. Saving money, cutting out stress, and having healthy dinners my family loves: that is a serious mommy win and such a good deal for less than $5 per month!
There are over 50 meal plans so there is something for every family. You can change plans once a month so you can try out the different plans. I have tried most of the plans and we have not been disappointed! I just can’t say enough about how much I love emeals! If you are looking for a first step to help you save money, this is the one I recommend!
As someone who has used the emeals meal plans for the last 5 years, here are some tips to really enjoy them:
- Try changing the meal plan every couple of months to get an amazing variety.
- Watch for stock up sales on the pantry essentials that they use in their menus and stock up. (The pantry essentials are listed at the bottom of the shopping lists.) You save even more money when you can shop for half of the items on the shopping list in your own personal stock pile!
- Whenever possible combine coupons with your list to save even more money!
