Thank you to everyone who left an app review in March! Our four one-year subscription winners have been notified. We will run another review contest later this year, so be on the lookout! 

“The Plan to Eat app has been really helpful for planning, budgeting, and providing an easy place to access and organize recipes from multiple sources. I highly recommend this app for anyone looking to stay on top of meal planning and spending on groceries!”

“Look. I’ve tried probably a solid 10-12 other meal planning systems/apps/ etc. Everything from paper based to phone. You don’t even know what features you’re missing until you go with Plan to Eat. I promise. Want to pre-cook 6 lasagnas at one time and pop 5 in the freezer? (Don’t judge me!) You can do that. Want to share meal planning between two devices (because your husband insists on putting the whole house on Apple products while you staunchly cling to your Android)? You can do that, too! Want to store 13 different recipes for mac and cheese (because, really, do you NEED a Baptist potluck sized mac and cheese for your family of 4?)? Just use tags to label them and you won’t be confused. Customer service are actual humans, which is rare. I recently had an issue, and submitted a help ticket—within 2 hours I had exchanged emails with an actual human who had solved my problem without making me look stupid (because it was me, I was the problem).”
