I hate to admit but I hate cooking. I'm still getting the hang of cooking enough. I mean my kids eat like adults so now I need to double meals more because I find I have to still cook daily (VERY annoying) versus once and eating for 2-3 days. So my goal has always been to cook have enough leftovers for another meal. Well now that's not happening and sure the costs suck but it sucks more to cook everyday. We also NEVER have enough for a meal so we have to wait till the end of the week and do a leftover night so that there is enough food for everyone to eat a leftover and finish it! Lunches is scrounged because it's just me unless it's a weekend and we cook or get takeout
18 - leftovers
19 japanese curry
20 leftover japanese curry
21 lunch - leftovers, stuffed bell peppers
22 lunch - salad, family leftovers (eat from week)
23 lunch - hot dogs, dinner - roast pork from chinese market $46.27
24 lunch - leftovers, dinner - out with friends
I'm looking at hello fresh. It looks like it would be cheaper than what we pay. But of course i can't tell. I haven't ever done those meal plans and my friends say it costs $135 for 4 meals for 4 people. But there are leftovers. So the question is how much does a family of 4 doing hello fresh really spend? Obviously there are going to be other costs so it's hard to estimate if these meal planning kits which have supposedly less waste are more economical than shopping. I don't know.
Does anyone else do it? How do you find it? Have you done a price comparison? Do you do it because it's easier and not more cost efficient.
