E-mealz Update

I have been using the website E-mealz since mid-November and thought I should give an update.

Simply put, I have enjoyed using the site. E-mealz is for people who have trouble organizing meals (or just dislike this task), and want to save a buck or two (like me!). My husband and I currently subscribe to the Low Fat Wal-Mart for Two meal list. Although we shop at the military commissary, I'm still able to get good prices on most of the products, and when we do shop at Wal-mart (once a month-ish), we are able to get food for the best prices.

The recipes have been very good. There have only been a few I didn't care for, mainly because I don't like one of the items used (lima beans - ick!). There have also been a few surprises, like Company Chicken - who knew that dried beef was so good?! This week, the recipes range from cheese ravioli to Mexican casserole to wild rice soup. I sometimes substitute things we already have in the pantry and freezer for the sides.

You can choose from a variety of meals from various grocery stores (Wal-Mart, Publix, Kroger, the "Any Store" option). The site uses the current sales flyer to put the meals together, usually saving you $30-40 a week! Not only can you choose different stores, but they also have family meal plans and plans for two people, AND low fat, low carb, vegetarian, and Weight Watcher points options. If you aren't happy with the plan that you choose, you can request to switch to another.

Overall, I enjoy using the site, and paying $1.25 a week to save me time is worth it! I highly recommend this site to those who don't have a lot of time for meal planning, or would prefer to have someone else do the planning.

Thank you for your opinion. I only wish I had waited to sign up so that you could've got the commission.
