Giveaway: E-Mealz


**This Giveaway has ENDED!  Thank you SO much for entering!  :)

P.S. If you didn’t win….you should TOTALLY sign up for one if their plans!  We are HUGE fans!

I am SO excited to introduce our next giveaway to all you readers who are oh-so-busy wives and mothers, or maybe even husbands and fathers…Whoever it is that does the cooking in your house is going to be THRILLED to learn about our newest sponsor E-mealz.com.

“E-Mealz relies on a team of experienced meal planners, writers and editors to create new menus every week that are designed around grocery store sales, seasonal specials and diet preferences. For $5.00 per month, subscribers download a recipe plan for the week with a matching aisle-by-aisle grocery list. The easy-to-follow recipes usually contain fewer than seven ingredients to allow for prep times of less than 30 minutes.  It also helps families stay within budget by being prepared with a plan at the grocery store.  Even if you do not fully understand how to coupon yet, having a plan will save you money instead of just running to the store multiple times a week picking up whatever you need to make a recipe work.”

I used to enjoy planning what we were going to be eating for dinner and I would map out my week with new recipes I would find online and go to the grocery store with whatever coupons I could remember to bring with me……and then…life hit!  We had a baby, work got busier, etc… meal planning was now on the bottom of my list!!  Then, one night, my husband and I were listening to the Dave Ramsey Show and he started talking about E-mealz.com so I looked them up and I was immediately hooked!

I have personally been using E-mealz to plan my weekly grocery shopping and dinner making for a while now.  It has made my life so much more simple and has freed up a lot of my time I can now spend with my family.  Even though it is just my husband, daughter, and I – I subscribe for the family meals because we like to have lots of leftovers for lunches the following days.  All the dinner recipes have been really yummy and I have also been cooking things I wouldn’t usually cook.

“The E-Mealz program provides a consistent and reliable approach to food budgeting by factoring the weekly cost of ingredients into each menu plan. Menus are created around a budget of $75 per week for families and $35 per week for couples.”

“E-Mealz was created by sisters Jane DeLaney, mother of four, and Jenny Cochran, mother of three. The sisters were frustrated by the challenge of coming up with healthy, budget-conscious meals for their own families and inspired by their own mother’s frugal ways, they launched the program in 2003.”

Their goal is to provide:



  • Delicious family friendly recipes
  • Ingredients bought on special and/or at the best price available
  • An easy and stress free home-cooked dinner
  • Precious moments with the most special people in your life

NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY!!!  E-Mealz has offered to give one of our lucky readers a THREE-MONTH SUBSCRIPTION to the menu plan of your choice…..for FREE!!  Doesn’t this all sound SO wonderful!  I know you’re already planning what you will be doing with all your free time you will now have!

    Dating Divas
    One of my favorite blogs to read, The Dating Divas, just started a new website. If you remember my post about our book store date (This Date), the idea came from The Dating Divas. (Their original date is Here) I really want to start my new year off right and make sure that Clay always knows how much I love him, so I am excited to take more of their ideas and put them into action.

    They are doing giveaways all this week to celebrate their new website, so go check them out and you can even enter! Hooray!
