This is a game changer in all things food that happen at your house! Eat At Home has helped lots of readers and even myself lower there grocery budgets. Feel more in control while still saving money. Today is the last day for this sale. Right now they are having a sale that will save you 30% with code HOME. That means for a month of meal plans, and grocery lists you will only pay $10.00! That comes out to only pennies per day. I challenge you to try it for one month. If you don’t like you can cancel at any time for a FULL refund within the first 30 days. Most people save more than double what they normally spend on groceries per month just by using Eat At Home. Just think you could potentially add $120.00 or more to your fund with this simple hack.
Even though for years I have meal planned, made grocery lists, and batch cooked freezer meals to have on hand like a mad woman. I am always open to new ways to make all the things meals happen in my home. When I first heard about Eat At Home. I thought it wasn’t for me. I already had my fine tuned system in place. This friend of mine goes and on and on about how awesome Eat At Home is and how it has changed her life for the better. Honestly, I thought she was just over exaggerating. I decided for $10.00, I would give it a try. I am so glad I did! It is just as magical as my friend said.
For the $10.00 monthly fee, you get a different weekly meal plan each week, you can choose from no flour/no sugar, slow cooker/instant pot, traditional, or wholesome plans. Each week has the option of a small plan (3-4 servings) or large (6-8 servings). You have access to all 4 monthly plans. Which I personally am loving! It is fun to mix and match meal plans based off how busy I will be that week. Each meal plan comes with a custom grocery list. Everything is available to print for easy access. I print the recipes and hang on the fridge. After, I cook the meal I add the recipe to my recycling bin.
What I have been doing is on Thursdays figuring out which plan I want to go with that week. I always have odds and ends left over from one meal plan or another. We all have those random cheap or free after app items that find their way into our homes. Those things need to be used up. What has been working well for me is to look at the grocery list provided and sub similar things with what I have on hand. I also cross off things I already have. That ensures everything is getting used up. It also saves me even more money by using what I have already.
For breakfast its always the same general things for us. Those items are part of my grocery staples. As soon as I run out of a staple item. I either write it on a post it note that lives on my fridge for this exact purpose. Every week after I buy the items, I throw out the old post it, and add a new fresh one. I have set up a shopping list with Alexa. The goal is to get tell her what staple items I am out of and have her add it to a list for me. Old habits die hard! I often forget to tell Alexa. I never forget to add it to the post it note. Lunch is usually leftovers, or some sort of sandwich.
The one thing we can’t buy, make, or get back is time. I am always looking for ways to be more efficient with the tasks I have to do such as meal planning. That way I can spend more time doing the things I WANT to do. Every Thursday for years, I have spent 2 plus hours a week meal planning, and making a grocery list. It currently takes me 15 minutes tops! The extra time is invaluable to me.
All of the recipes we have tried have been easy to make and most importantly delicious! I always make the larger serving size of each item. That ensures lunches are taken care of. With this method I am marking 2 things off my list at one time. I know it seems counter intuitive to spend money to save money. That was my thought at first too. I am here to tell you it works!!! Before Eat At Home, I was spending $150 a week on grocery staples and food for my meal plans. The past few weeks with Eat At home I have only spent $100.00 on average! After you deduct the meal plan cost. I have $40.00 a week to add into my Disney fund. I am really intrigued as to why. My best guess is that I was over buying food.
