There’s one thing I loathe about food shopping: planning the meals. I’m one of those gals that has no issue shopping for groceries. Heck, I don’t even mind putting them away. But actually planning the meals? I’ll pass. I still plan our meals at the beginning of each week, like a good Mom, but there is only so much inspiration you can get from Pinterest before you start to want to pull your hair out. This is why I’m now a new fan of eMeals.
Have you heard about eMeals? They are a meal planning service that not only provides a shopping list for you, but 7 recipes each week to accompany them. With 12 different types of meal plans to choose from (I chose the
1 year Clean Eating Family Plan), you’ll be able to provide great meals to your family each week, while staying on budget and not getting overwhelmed with options.
I’m also loving the pricing of eMeals service. For less than 5 dollars a month, you get everything mentioned above. When I met the brilliant ladies behind this company at Type A Parent Conference, I told them that what they offer is a real bargain, even in our frugal circles. Even Dave Ramsey recommends eMeals as a budget-friendly service, since they help a family of 4 save on average two thousand dollars a year.
One of the most difficult things to figure out when you are on a budget is where to spend and save your money. Bringing in quality food into you home, and having help deciding on what to purchase, is something you must consider a top priority. I love that eMeals can help us accomplish both. Oh, and side note: I love that they also create meal plans featuring budget-friendly stores like Aldi and Walmart, and have an app! You don’t even need to print out your list, as it’s always available right on your phone. Win!
I can’t wait to feature some of the meals we make via eMeals recipes over the next few months. Stay tuned on Tuesdays to see what we’re making, what meal plans we’re loving, and how much money we’re saving by using the program.

I was given a year membership to eMeals, but all opinions are my own. Also, this post may contain a few affiliate links, but I promise you I won’t get rich off of them. Pinky promise.
