I remember when my husband and I were first married. I tried so hard to enjoy meal planning. I spent hours writing out menu plans and filling a folder full of cute little meal planning calendars, creative ideas clipped from magazines and a whole lot of other organizational tools intended to motivate me to become the meal planning guru I thought I should be.
Then came 2008 – that was the year I was expecting our second son and it was also the year that my husband was suddenly laid off.
Suddenly saving money on groceries and meal planning was less about being super-mom and more about surviving our lack of income.
That was also the year that I bought my first eMeals subscription.
If the fact that I started paying for a meal plan after my husband lost his job seems backward to you, I understand. But may I remind you of the old adage – “Time is money”?
It’s true, you know.
I’ve been an eMeals subscriber for almost four years now. That’s hundreds of hours I haven’t spent meal planning, grocery-list making, and scouring Pinterest for ideas on how to spend less time meal planning and grocery-list making.
It’s also hundreds of hours I have spent finding other ways to save money – couponing, deal-hunting, freebie-finding, and earning extra cash online. By trading the time spent on meal planning for time spent saving my family money in other ways, I can only guess that I’ve save thousands of dollar since I started paying $5 per week on eMeals. Talk about your return on investment!
And now that I am an even busier Mom of three boys, saving time has become an even greater priority for me. Not to mention, finding a plan that fits my family.
eMeals continues to come to the rescue with the addition of the eMeals app (which saves even MORE time!), Breakfast and Lunch Meal Plan options and a whole slew of family and budget-friendly menu plans such as:
- 30 Minute Meal Plan
- Slow Cooker
- Low Carb
- Kid Friendly *NEW*
- Gluten Free
- Natural & Organic
…and so much more. Not to mention, many of these meal plans are created around the weekly sales at stores like ALDI, Walmart, Kroger, Safeway, Target and more.
