Freebies!!

by

The folks at E-mealz contacted me about their Family Week promotion this week. If you stop by their website, they are offering free menus including grocery list & prices, complimentary desserts, as well as family activities & games – and aren’t we all fans of freebies?? So if you are on the fence about trying E-mealz, stop by their website this week and enter your e-mail address for your free menu (including dessert!). Don’t worry, this sharing of your e-mail address won’t sign you up for pharmaceutical sales or the Nigerian lottery – I promise.

I’ve been signed up for E-mealz (yes, I pay for it. E-mealz DOES NOT pay me to promote it) for a few months now and I absolutely love it. If you’re anything like me, you are frequently in a rush and generally buy a plethora of frozen dinners. There was always a little embarrassment whenever the grocery checker rang up my purchases. It was a pretty big spotlight on the fact that I didn’t make time to eat right.

Now? I shop in the produce and meat/fish sections more than anywhere else. I haven’t purchased a frozen dinner in months and to be honest, I feel a little smug when buying $35 in fresh food while the person in front of me buys 20 frozen dinners.

But I totally understand if the plan doesn’t work for you. My sister, a raw vegan, can’t use the plan and my other sister’s husband has certain food allergies and is also unable to use it. There are others, God bless you, who already prepare good meals every night and don’t need the help.

For those who signed up in August, let me know what you think. I’m interested in your feedback!

E-mealz is still offering 10% off to BloggingAwayDebt readers if you use the code: bawaydebt
The discount code expires on October 15th. So hurry up!

The folks at E-mealz sent me a sneak peak of the menus (yum! – but it’s a secret!) and a Press Release (below).

“Let’s Celebrate Us”

The family is such an important part of who we are and where we belong. Within our families we have purpose, goals and dreams that we intend to make come true. Family Day, A Day to Eat Dinner with your Kids®, recognized as a National Day of Observance the last Monday of every September, speaks to the primary importance of family connection around the dinner table. We love Family Day® so much that we want to extend the celebration for the entire week of September 27th.

Regular family discussion around the dinner table is an important part of family life as well as a key element of healthy development during childhood. Research suggests that family dinner conversation builds language skills, critical thinking, and relationships and lessen the chance of substance use in our children. Often in our daily lives we forget to take the time to continue to learn about our loved ones. The E-Mealz family is inviting every family to celebrate during “Let’s Celebrate Us” Family Week. Any size and type of family can enjoy five nights of “Dinner Dialogue,” “Gab and Games,” free dessert recipes and a fun-filled activities for everyone.

There is a fundamental logistical problem that interferes with dinner for most busy households…it’s 5 o’clock and there is nothing in the pantry to cook. E-Mealz purpose is to make dinnertime feasible and the grocery budget manageable for every busy family.

E-Mealz was created as a simple organizational tool for big and small families, couples, empty nesters, and roommates from every corner of America and around the world as well. Any family, with or without children, can be encouraged to continue to learn about our spouses, significant others and children.

Communication is the key to relationships, which largely involves asking questions to learn more about each other and connecting on a regular basis. E-Mealz has provided fun, food and games to encourage all types of families to engage and enjoy each other’s company. E-Mealz challenges everyone to carve out time for “Family Week” to focus on dinner as a regular evening ritual and the uniqueness that makes each family special. So, E-Mealz invites you to join us throughout the entire week of September 27th celebrating and strengthening families across the country.

    We signed up last month using the discount code you provided and have been nothing but happy! The food is great and REALLY simple to make. We are eating better and are surprised by the variety each week.

    One other positive side effect is that we now go to the store only once a week and buy everything we need. We used to go several times a week to get the “one” item we needed and it turned into a small shopping trip each time. More money saved!

    Thanks for finding this deal and sharing it with the rest of us!

    LOVE IT!! We signed up last month and we are so happy with the service. I can hardly boil water and have had only had one meal (out of almost four weeks) not turn out so great. My husband was very skeptical of having to pay to save $$, but now that he doesn’t have to eat the same three things over and over, he is hooked too!

    That’s great that you found something you like. I had to laugh about your comment on being smug about purchasing all fresh foods versus packaged foods.

    I’ve been doing menu plans for a while now and can’t remember the last time I’ve purchased any kind of frozen, boxed or prepared food. I love the fact that I am eating good, high quality food versus the junk ingredients in most packaged foods. A few weeks ago I read a book by Michael Pollen and one of the quotes he had was that, “We should eat more foods made FROM plants than from food made IN plants.”

    With regards to budget, you get the most bang for your buck with a menu plan. It’s not only knowing what you are having, but knowing the cost for each meal. I always find it odd that people shop without having made a menu plan. It’s also good to build a menu plan around the sale flyer for optimum savings. One of the ladies in one of my internet group builds her menu plan around the sale flyer. She cooks for her family and says they eat like kings because of it.

So, what do you think ?
