How Family Meal Planning Services Can Save You Money

Posted on 01/13/2012

Wouldn’t it be great if you never had to worry about what to make for dinner and how much it’s going to cost to feed your family? Meal planning services are here to help. Think of them as the place where a personal chef meets a home economist for budget-conscious families.

Match Meals with Sales Matching what’s on sale with recipes that your family will eat can be incredibly difficult. It’s like putting together a culinary puzzle. But that’s where meal planning services can help. They maintain a database of what’s on sale at various grocery stores each week. You select your store of choice and it will tell you what to buy to fulfill specific recipes.

Avoid Dining Out
If you’re honest with yourself, most of the time you end up ordering pizza or heading to the fast food drive thru it’s because you didn’t know what to make for dinner. You looked in your pantry or fridge and saw nothing that represented a balanced meal. But with a meal planning service that won’t happen. You’ll avoid spending money in restaurants or on last minute meals.

Set Your Tastes

If you don’t like broccoli or you’re allergic to shrimp, you can let the meal planning service know. They’ll tailor your recipes to what you like or don’t like. Because if you’re making things you won’t eat that’s just like throwing money in the trash.

Fill Dietary Needs
People often argue that eating healthy costs more, or making dinner for just one or two people is too expensive. But that’s where e-mealz can help. They let you pinpoint your dietary and household needs so you won’t receive recipe suggestions that don’t work for you. The service runs about $1.25 a week.

Try Food on the Table Free

Food on the Table is one of the meal planning services available. And the best part is it’s free. Every week the site will help you make a meal plan based on what’s on sale at the grocery store and organize a shopping list. The only thing it won’t do is cook for you.
