Tom and I have been just completed the 13-week "Financial Peace University" by Dave Ramsey (to clarify, Tom attended the classes and brought the info back to me, and I stayed home to watch the kids). Very enlightening and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to live a debt-free life and not be controlled by credit cards and banks (which never have, and never will, look out for your best interest). I look forward to the day when we don't exist according to FICO. :)
Anyway, through these classes we found out about this amazing website called E-mealz: mealtime makeover. Quoting from the website:
"Each meal plan is only $1.25 per week and represents many hours of recipe and menu planning, price shopping, and recipe testing. All of these plans are designed with your whole family in mind, even the specialty plans created for weight management... and now we also have plans for just two people!"
Awesome, right? Basically, for a small fee ($5/month), meals, recipes, and grocery lists are compiled based on where you shop or even if you are on a special diet. This is especially great for those who cannot get their act together to plan meals on their own (ie, moi). Sale items for the week are also incorporated into the meal plans so saving money is a huge perk.
Knowing how stressful life can get, I thought sharing this little nugget of info could help other harried mothers out there.
