I am very, very excited about this program.  Like super excited! 

What is Emeals you ask? Well here's a bit about the program.
eMeals is the market leader in online meal planning solutions for consumers.

The company provides over 50 weekly plans based on customers preferred food style, family size and grocery store. Specialties include classic, clean eating, simple gourmet, low fat, low carb, paleo, portion control, organic, vegetarian and gluten-free meals.

I have been working very, very hard to get my spending in check.  I am trying to dig myself out of debt and it's been quite a feat.  I hope by summer to be down to only one credit card and my car payment (wish me luck!).  We all know Dave Ramsey and his financial advice is very popular and from what I understand, very good and sound.  I haven't really followed his program so I don't know what it entails but I do know about his recommendation of snowballing.  List your credit cards/debts/etc. in smallest to largest order.  Pay off your smallest first while paying the minimum payment on the others.  Then, when the smallest is paid off, you tack that payment onto the payment of the next one in line and so on and so forth.   It made sense to me long before I'd heard Dave Ramsey calling it snowballing.  So, the reason I mention Dave Ramsey is because he endorses Emeals!

The way this program works is you pick your eating style (it was hard for me! because I like classic, simple gourmet and clean eating styles!).  I went with the classic style to start.  I did notice that if you want to change it, you can once a month.  You can even ADD multiple (it does cost to add them) food styles.  This is only for the evening meal.  You can add lunch and breakfast to your membership, also.  Again, it costs but the overall savings should balance it out!   As Dave Ramsey said, we spend too much money on food.  It's true.  This is the one area where I have really cut down spending and surprising myself in the process.  I'm surprised I can survive on such a small budget for two.

You also pick your family size and you can even pick your preferred grocery store! Yay!
Each week, you are emailed your weekly meal plan and my favorite part? There's a shopping list on the last page and it's coordinated with the weekly sales at your grocery store!

The shopping list is great because it's organized by meal and grocery department.  Along the side is a table with the necessary staples.  You can go through mark off what you already have in your pantry/freezer and then off to the store, matchup ads and if you use coupons, you're in for the gold.  I am starting to learn more and more about couponing so I really hope to save even more!

I made a chicken and brocolli stir fry off the very first menu Emeals sent me.  I found the recipe to be very uncomplicate, easy to follow and very flavorful.  I did leave out the peanuts (my daughter has low tone in her mouth so she loses the sensation of food and can easily choke) and use frozen brocolli versus fresh.  It was very inexpensive.  The recipe was organized and so was the shopping list.  I am really excited about this service and I will definitely keep you updated.  Honestly, I don't know if I saved money BUT the fact that I made dinner versus picking up takeout saved me money.  The fact that the recipe was easy and the meal was fast motivated me.  I did this on a weeknight after work.  I swung by the grocery store, grabbed the few things we needed and came home and cooked.  Dinner was ready for my daughter by the time she came home.  

I will definitely keep you all updated and let you know how much I can save.  I am starting to keep a log of how much I am saving with this program.  


Not the best photo but it came out really yummy and flavorful.
