Plan to Eat Meal Planning Giveaway – 3 Winners!

posted by Andrea | 04/16/2011

This giveaway is now closed.

I am a huge advocate for meal planning — not only to help stretch our small grocery budget, but also to simplify and organize our weeknight routine {and honestly, would doesn’t need to stretch their budget or simplify weekday meals?}

I’m also a big fan of digitizing every piece of paper I can — including recipes.

If you are like me, then you’ll LOVE Plan to Eat’s simple, electronic, and really convenient online meal-planning services.

Plan to Eat simplifies meal planning in 3 steps..

#1. Import, Organize, and Share your Recipes.

Not only can you type in all your favorite recipes and access them from any computer with internet access, you can also search and IMPORT recipes from your favorite blogs or cooking websites to make meal planning that much easier!

#2 Create your monthly meal plan.

Quickly and easily drag and drop recipes from your Recipe Book to create your monthly meal plan. You can even add additional ingredients, make notes, change the number of servings, and then print and export your meal plan to other calendar programs to sync your meal plan with your schedule.

#3 Create customized grocery lists based on your meal plan and pantry staples

The Shopping List is where all your hard work pays off as it automatically combines and categorizes ingredients from the recipes that are on your meal plan. 

That’s it!

Getting the system setup and adding your favorite recipes is the most time-consuming part. But once the recipes are stored in your Plant to Eat recipe box, you can simply drag and drop the meals to your calendar, make any adjustments to your grocery lists, and you’re ready to go.

Simple and organized!

  1. Rae Ellen


    The most difficult part of meal planning is trying to meet the simple needs of my 3 picky children with the more mature taste of my husband, while keeping it simple.

  2. Berit


    I love meal planning and used to do a good job despite having to work around my husband’s rotating day/swing/mid work schedule. But in the last two years we have had several changes in our life that have knocked me completely off-the-rails. It’s time to get back on and ‘Plan to Eat’ looks like a great tool.

  3. Melissa G.


    The most difficult part of meal planning for me is finding a system that is flexible enough to meet our busy family’s needs. If I run out of an ingredient, I don’t always have time to run to the store. I love the drag & drop feature!

  4. Angie D.


    I think the most difficult part is the sparatic change in numbers at our table. Some nights it’s just my husband and I and others it’s our family of 4 plus maybe a friend or 2 over at the last minute after school.
