BIG savings on my grocery bill!

I've tried meal planning a number of times over my 25 years of marriage. Nothing sticked. I couldn't handle the weekly grocery store trips and the shopping lists were cumbersome. I'd get so frustrated, I'd stop. I wasted so my money on food I'd end up not using. This was my yo-yo of meal planning.

We started eating out, spending $1000 a month on food. Then, I found plantoeat.com. Remembering my history with meal planning, I approached with caution. I tested it out and added a few recipes. Then, in October, I tried out planning for a month. I successfully planned, cooked and SAVED nearly $600.

I love using the shopping list. It's easy to remove items I already have and add things I need, not in the recipe. The recipe key on the lists helps me make a decision, while at the store, to eliminate a recipe because the combined ingredients are expensive.

Entering recipes, both import and manual, is a cinch. I love having my recipes organized in one place and I can see how many times I've planned each recipe.

Thanks for a great product!

    I am curious. When we sign up I saw something about sales at grocery stores. Is there away to find out which stores are having sales on the the items on the shopping lists?

    Hi there.

    No, there is no integrated system to track costs or coupons through Plan to Eat. Most of the people that experience cost savings (like the testimonial above) find their savings by not being so wasteful.

    We are looking to build some of these features into Plan to Eat over the next year, but we currently do not have these features.
