DEAL ALERT: Get Meal Plans Made for You for Just $1.13 a WEEK!
Saving money is 100% my JAM. And, since we’re friends, that means that you get to hear about any awesome money saving deals that I love! (SCORE, right?!)
You might have heard about how my husband and I used to spend $1,200 a MONTH (yes, you read that right!!!) on food. Just for the 2 of us!
We’d go to the grocery store without a list, stroll leisurely up and down the aisles, and just grab whatever looked good (aka – a lot of junky food). And then – wait for it – we’d grab take out on the way home because grocery shopping made us hungry! And as if all of that wasn’t bad enough, more than half of the food we’d buy would go bad because we still basically got takeout every night!
I mean this when I say this to you: it was SO BAD.
We had out oldest son and that really put things into perspective when we went from 2 incomes down to 1 and couldn’t figure out where all of our money was going!
I sat down to make the dreaded B word – a budget. And i saw how much we were spending on food each month: $1,200 between takeout and groceries (most of which got thrown out!)!!
That was it. I finally got my act together and started looking into meal planning.
Have you ever had a moment when you discover something for the first time and it’s like the clouds parted and angels came down from heaven singing? Yup. That was me when I started meal planning! Our spending went from $1,200 for 2 people down to $400 for 3 people and now (thanks to Aldi, years of practice, and meal planning), our family of 5 has a monthly grocery bill of $75 a week (or $300/month).
True story: I won’t pretend it was easy. When I started meal planning back in 2011, I had to look up all of the recipes myself and make a huge excel spreadsheet of the ingredients I’d need. All said and done, that part of the planning took me about 4+ hours a week (remember, Pinterest wasn’t as awesome as it is today).
It was a drag to spend 20+ hours a month making these meal plans and grocery lists, but HOLY COW it was worth it!!!!
That’s kind of why I’m here today. Since I work, my husband works, we have 3 sons, and a busy life, I barely have time to stay on top of the dirty laundry let alone spend 4+ hours a week making my meal plans and grocery lists.
Enter: Eat at Home Meal Plans.
Each week, I get my pre-made meal plans and grocery list sent to me. Since we’re a “big” family, They actually have a meal plan that will make enough food for all 5 of us.
Got dietary restrictions? They’ve got you covered.
Only have 15 minutes to make dinner? You’ve got it.
Need to make freezer meals? Done.
Only have time for a Crock Pot or an Instant Pot? It’s all spelled out for you no matter how you cook dinner.
Oh, and if you’ve got picky eaters, live on a tight budget, hate food waste, and just want something that will help you save money and time instead of wasting it? This. Is. For. YOU.
I’ve been using Eat at Home Meals for more than a year now and I swear it’s what keep my kids fed when I feel like I’m running around like a mad woman trying to “do it all” during the day.
These meal plans are a game changer. I’ve used them to make food for friends after they’ve had babies. I’ve used them when I know I needed to make a crockpot meal in the early morning so that I’d have dinner for the kids when I finally got home from soccer practice. I’ve used them just when I didn’t know what to make for dinner on a regular Wednesday night!
Plus, here’s my favorite part, I spend 0 time making my meal plans or making a grocery list. It’s like the gift of 20+ hours a month back to myself that I used to spend making my own meal plans!
I could sing their praises all day long, but the real deal is that this is a sale that you don’t want to miss!
Got any questions? Just send me an email at [email protected] and I’ll help you out as much as I can! I never want you to spend money that you don’t have to, so I promise to give you a 100% honest opinion of whether it’s right for you or not (seriously, I have no problem telling you that it’s not for you! 🙂 I’m only here to help!).
