Works for Me Wednesday

Today is once again WFMW over at Shannon's. If you are anything like me, and terrible at planning menus out for the week, I have a wonderful idea for you. I found out about a great website, called E-Mealz that plans weekly menus and gives you easy shopping lists to take to the store with you, and even tells you the price of each item if you are on a budget so you know exactly what you are going to spend for that week. You can choose from tons of plans that include Walmart, Publix, and Kroger, diet specific plans such as Weight Watchers, vegetarian, or low fat menus, or even specific plans that feed families (4-6 people) or meals plans that serve only 2 people. The grocery story plans are based on the current sales.

E-Mealz gives you a complete meal for each day, and breaks down the list by section in the store. That way, you don't end up walking the aisles over and over. E-Mealz costs only $5.00 a month, and all the menus are in pdf file, so you can save them on your computer and use them again and again. I only subscribed for a 3 month period, but I still have all the menus that I can still use.

I have gotten some great recipes from E-Mealz, and the convenience of having someone else help me plan is wonderful. For only $15, it was definitely worth it for us. For those people who need a little help with menus, this could definitely work for you!

What a great tip to share! Thanks! I'm glad to hear sign language worked so well for you too; I am slowly convincing all my friends to do it with their kids too! Have a great day!

Use the code "David" and you'll get a percentage off. I think I paid $12.50 for my first subscription.
