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!
