I have to be honest…….I ‘ve never been one to meal plan.  I’m a fly by the seat of your pants kind of meal planner.  I don’t shop with a list, unless there are some very specific items I need to be sure I don’t forget.  I usually wing it at the store.  I know the meals my family likes, and then I try and pick up staples that I know come in handy for most recipes I might discover on another blog or magazine.

I’m pretty sure I know WHY I don’t do “meal planning”……..because it’s just one more thing “to do” in my busy day.  It takes time to sit down and look up recipes, think about what items I will need to buy  and  check to see what I already have.

Then one day E-Mealz contacted me!  Truthfully, my fist thought was, yeah…another meal planning site, where I do all the work — no time for that!  But I wanted to be fair and give it a look……and guess what? E-Mealz does ALL of the work for you!!……..well, everything but shopping and cooking! lol……but I can handle that part!

Imagine having someone who plans your meals around weekly deals at your grocery store, creates your grocery list, and then….only charges you $5 a month…THAT is what E-Mealz does!!

I LOVE it!
