But after months of eating out/eating hamburger helper, I have decided to take control of this boring cycle of dinners. But I needed a way to do it cheap. I am on a budget, unfortunately. So how do I choose meals that are fun but don't cost an arm and a leg to get all the ingredients for? Drum roll please.......... EMEALS.
Oh eMeals! Such a time and stress saver. Seriously. I tell it where I shop (Wal-Mart of course), how many people are in my household (2), and wah la! I now have a full grocery list, that is separated by category (produce, dairy, etc.), and it usually runs around 50 - 60 bucks. The meals that they choose for each day of the week are amazingly delicious and SIMPLE. And with all the time it saves, it is totally worth the 7 dollar a month charge for using the service.
So, because of this awesome find, I have made some goals for myself.
1] Do not make hamburger helper more than once a month.
2] Only go out to eat once a week.
3] Make a different meal for a month strait. (this should be easy peasy with emeals.)
Wish me luck!!
So I bought this today at the Flea Market. It was 40 bucks and I have been wanting one for the longestttttt time!
I know it is completely unnecessary, but goodness I love it. It instantly dispenses cold and hot water. It is so handy and I am extremely excited that I got it for so cheap! Eek!
