Q: How will Plan to Eat help me save money?

A: Creating a meal plan saves you money on groceries because you only shop for what you need. When you create a meal plan, Plan to Eat makes a shopping list for you and then you can go to the store with an organized list, or send it to your local grocery store for pickup or delivery! 

Grocery shopping from an organized list of ingredients, generated from your recipes, prevents you from overbuying on random items you don’t actually need. 

In 2017, we surveyed our customers and the average food cost of the customers surveyed, per person in the household per month, was reduced from $199 to $152. That’s a grocery bill reduction of 23%!
