With a family of five including two adults and three growing children, you would assume that my grocery bill would be high, right?? It was more than high, it was TREMENDOUS!!!
- I was not using any coupons or discounts
- I was not making a list or not a realistic ones
- I was allowing my family to basically make a “restaurant” out of my house
My family and I would only know what we were eating about five minutes before we actually cooked anything (if it was even cooked). The times I would want to cook a meal and decide to do so I was always missing some ingredient whether big or small. It was beyond frustrating and stressing!
The Final Straw:
I think I had a lot of “final” straws but this last one just blew me away! I had finally had enough!! I went and spent a whopping $578 on groceries I can remember it because I wanted to scream that I had spent that much, to begin with. I finally told myself enough times that “it was food for my family and it’s not like I spent that much on myself, so it was okay” I had actually was okay with it and proceeded home. Once all the food was on the shelves the kids were excited to see all the different products we had and bragged on my “shopping skills” or lack thereof.
Boy, I was wrong. So SO wrong. I went to work the next morning, my kids were out of school that day and stayed at the house with my hubby. Long story short I got home and 98% of ALL the snacks were gone… there were open packs of this and that EVERYWHERE.
Let’s just skip the part about my reaction to the above and to everything I left out that I saw…
I went to my “go-to” source for searching for things…you guessed it Pinterest
And to my surprise, I found this link that said FREE COOKING 101 WORKSHOP. I clicked on and enrolled in the workshop figuring I would probably learn a new recipe but that was about it…
Little did I know that little link was my saving grace.
What is it?
The name is -MyFreezEasy. It’s a monthly membership program, related to FreezEasy.
There are two types of memberships: BASIC membership where members of the freezer cooking meal plan subscription login to get access to the new meal plans each month. And we have a PREMIUM
membership that gives members accesses the “build your own meal plan” desktop app.
The goal of FreezEasy is to help members create their own meal plans so they can make 10 to 12 meals for your freezer in less than one hour!!!
I know what your thinking, there is no way that is possible. I thought it too, but I am here to tell you we were/are both wrongs! It takes a specific type or style of recipe and meal to make that happen and Erin(the creator)has designed pre-set meal plans with that goal in mind.
What do the MyFreezEasy freezer cooking meal plans contain?

The new meal plans are uploaded into the member area each month. The meal plans are created and packaged to make you spend as little time in the grocery store getting what you need, and as little time in the kitchen preparing the 10 meals for the freezer.
And as if that wasn’t enough to hook you there is this!!!
