With the fast paced, busy lives most people lead today it can be difficult to find the time to plan out meals and shopping lists. Fortunately there are services such as Emeals that generate shopping lists for you based on meal plans that you choose. Services like this can significantly lower the money spent on groceries by limiting the impulse purchases that often occur at the grocery store. The selection of meal plans is pretty diverse, and covers many different diets. Options are available for vegetarian meals, the paleo diet, and even gluten free plans. Once a meal plan has been selected, the service generates a shopping list to take to the grocery store. This can greatly assist in budget planning and keeping grocery costs low.
There are other services available with similar formats. The Six O’ Clock Scramble, Relish, and Food.com are all great alternatives. With an increasingly technology based lifestyle, it seems like common sense to put our PCs to work when it comes to the grocery store too.
