Fleishman Hillard recently did a study with TheMotherhood.com called “Cart to Kitchen 2013: Slicing Into Moms’ Food Decisions” and the big takeaway is we all want to be:
• more organized in how you shop (41 percent)
• make fewer trips to the grocery store (33 percent)
• be more organized with weekly meal planning (67 percent)
• make meals ahead and freeze them (51 percent)
So if you’re like the moms in the study, I highly recommend Plan to Eat. Just look at some of the features Plan to Eat offers. I happen to think Plan to Eat is a great find. It will cost you $4.95 a month to use after the trial period is over, but if you are looking to get organized in 2013, this is a pretty great site with an amazing set of tools.
Organize everything by shopping aisle. I used to do that when I made my handwritten lists so family members could shop easier. This site does it for you.
Organize by store. Not every store carries everything so if you’re like me, I hit different stores for different things my family likes. Plan to Eat helps you organize by store.
Organize all your recipes in one place. Plan to Eat works with over 100 sites. And you can organize all the recipes so they’re easy to find. Even track them by how long they take to cook. Or “Cook from My Pantry.”
Eat healthier. Track calorie counts and nutrition information.
Change serving sizes and Plan to Eat adjusts the shopping list. How great is that.
Merge items on the weekly menu plan. They had me when I saw that with a click of a button it will “merge several items.” So instead of you having to manually look at all your recipes for a week and figure out how many eggs or how much flour you will need, Plan to Eat will merge it all together.
These are just a few of the features of Plan to Eat. You should have some fun exploring the site yourself.
And if 2013 is the year you want to get organized when it comes to shopping and meal planning, Plan to Eat is a great place to start. Check it out and let us know what you think.
