I've tried meal planning a number of times over my 25 years of marriage. Nothing stuck. I couldn't handle the weekly grocery store trips and the shopping lists were cumbersome. I'd get so frustrated, I'd stop. I wasted so much money on food I'd end up not using. This was my yo-yo of meal planning. We started eating out, spending $1000 a month on food. Then I found Plan to Eat. Remembering my history with meal planning I approached with caution. I tested it out and added a few recipes and tried out planning for a month. I successfully planned, cooked and SAVED nearly $600.

This is my favorite thing these days! Great for busy families that "don't have time to cook" and the best part is it makes the shopping list for you! A year subscription paid for itself in the first week when it kept us from eating out for a night. What a great idea.

I LOVE this!!!! I love cooking, am terrible at planning and if I get as far as planning, making a list of everything I need is a nightmare. This is the website I dreamed someone would create...THANK YOU!!!

So far I love it! I plan to sign my son up as well, as he does all the cooking for his family. Easy to use; love the add a recipe feature. I have been cooking more and loving it. Veggies aren't going to waste in the fridge...Thank you for what you have done!

I've been relying on bookmarks and printed calendars and a separate grocery list and planning meals (when I actually DO it) typically takes several hours per week. This is going to save me so much time! Not only that, but every time I think "I wish it would do this, or I wish I could do that" and I look for the feature, it's there. YOU THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING.

Plan to Eat is a small business – Just Our Family
Lisa is the visionary for Plan to Eat. It was through her frustration with the redundancy of planning meals that Plan to Eat was born.
Clint is the creator and maintainer of Plan to Eat. He is part designer, part programmer, and all around problem solver.
We are both passionate about homeschooling, raising our 4 kids, and eating real food cooked at home while helping others do the same.
We are not a startup.
We are not trying to grow as fast as possible (by making our service free) so we can sell our customer base and move on to the next project.
We don't like ads.
Especially in the context of a web application like Plan to Eat.
We have intentionally chosen not to seek investors or borrow money
This gives us the freedom to focus on what is best for our customers and our own family.
We try to be very clear & up front about the cost of a Plan to Eat Subscription.
It’s $4.95/month or $39/year. We do not ask for credit card information before starting a 30 day trial. We do not want to “trick” you into paying us because you forgot to cancel. We offer a no-questions-asked refund policy. By default, we do not automatically bill you when your yearly subscription expires.
If your subscription expires...
We do not remove your account but instead suspend it so you can renew at any point.
We do not hold your recipes & information hostage.
You can always export all of your recipes, even after your subscription has expired.
We believe these ideas are just common sense.
They reflect our commitment to treating our customers the way we want to be treated.
