I loathed meal planning.
On a particularly low day during my first pregnancy, I sat at dining room table staring at dozens of takeout menus. With all the despair of Anne Shirley, I laid my head down and cried, “I Just. Don’t. Know. what to have for dinner!”
I was overwhelmed by meal planning, and…I wasn’t even COOKING!!
It doesn’t get more pathetic than that. I couldn’t meal plan…even when I was just ordering take out.
Like I said, I loathed meal planning.
But then, a couple years ago I found a site called Plan To Eat. I fell in love and told everyone I knew about it.
Why I Turned Down A Free Offer
Well, not long after, the nice folks at PTE appreciated all my referrals and offered to give me a free lifetime subscription to their service.
Now, I’m all for saving money, but it is crucially important to me that my priority is always you, my mom friends. We don’t have time or money to waste, so I never want to feel obligated to a business in any way. (That’s also why I don’t have ads here on the blog.) I only want to share things that have had a huge impact on my home and that I think will help you too.
So, I said no thank you.
If figure, if I’m encouraging you to put down your hard earned money for something, I should do the same.
So that’s why I get excited when they do their Black Friday sale each year. That sale is going on right now, which means you and I can get their service for 50% off for a whole year!
I’m definitely signing up and if meal planning is your enemy too, check out their service (they have a free trial) and see if it’s for you. (Or at least watch the video I made for them. I’m such a dork on video.)
I’ll be holding another round of my Meal Planning Bootcamp after the holidays to make sure everyone gets started on the right foot for 2014!
