I’m a little giddy. I was invited to be a part of the eMeals Blogger Network! I feel like a real blogger. They were on my list to blog about anyway, and now it’s like I get to do it “officially.” Like I said, giddy.
eMeals is an amazing service that plans your weekly meals and grocery list for you. I mean, c’mon. I’ve been using eMeals for about two years now, and first heard about it from the Dave Ramsey website. We were in the thick of The Total Money Makeover at the time and I saw eMeals listed under “Dave Recommends.” I thought, “Well, if Dave Ramsey thinks it’s worth paying for, I’ll check it out.” Even my 52&7 buddy, Jon Acuff likes eMeals!
At the time, they only had a few meal plans to choose from, but now they have A TON. The coolest part to me is that some of the plans are even store specific. That means that not only have they planned your meals and shopping list, they’ve also shopped the sales for you so that you’re cooking based on what’s for sale at your store. I spent so. much. time. doing that on my own that eMeals was totally worth it, and I thought that even before I had a baby. Furthermore, I love trying new recipes and it’s super fun to get them every week right in my inbox.
This year, I’m starting out the year trying one of their newer plans, Simple Gourmet. I loved the Classic Meals plan but I saw a sample of the Simple Gourmet plan and thought it was exactly the kinds of things I like to cook. Unfortunately, this plan doesn’t have a store specific list (maybe soon, eMeals fairies?) but I thought it was worth a shot. You’re able to try different plans during your subscription, so if the store-specific savings prove to be really worth it, I can always switch back. I’ll let you know how it’s going in a couple of weeks.
In the meantime, they have some cool freebie printables on their blog like this one to help get you organized for the New Year! This list with an eMeals meal plan is all you need for your weekly grocery planning needs.
If you want to give it a try, you can save 15% off of your subscription with the code “newyear.”
Now if only they had a plan that included dishwashing, too…
