Plated Package Contents Hip2Save

So I was excited when I came upon Plated.com (thanks to reader, Sarah, for emailing about it!). I think the concept is really cool… BUT before going any further, please keep in mind that this is definitely not a *HOT* deal or even a huge money-saver. However, what this site does do is save you time. I also think you may get a big confidence boost when it comes to cooking and well, just being in the kitchen in general. OK, so maybe this won’t build your confidence if you’re already a pro in the kitchen, but if you are like me and burn things, forget water is boiling, add the wrong ingredients to recipes, get lazy and don’t measure (ya, I do that on occasion), then you are definitely going to get a confidence boost! 😀

Plated.com offers chef-designed recipes delivered right to your doorstep so that you can prepare a healthy and delicious dinner for your family without having to leave your home! Each Plated.com recipe comes in a 100% recyclable, biodegradable box filled with ALL of the ingredients that you need packed fresh and pre-portioned to cut back on waste. You’ll receive everything from the cut meat and chopped produce right down to details such as a teaspoon of turmeric or a quarter cup of coconut oil. Once your box arrives, just transfer the contents of the box to the refrigerator and your ingredients will remain fresh for the next 4-5 days!

Even better, new Plated.com members can use the promo code PLATEDNOW at checkout to get 4 Plates for FREE plus 1 Month of Membership for FREE – all you have to pay is shipping costs of $20 can use the promo code 30OFF to get 30% off (note that you do need a minimum of 4 plates for each delivery date). Just head here, click on the Get Started button, select the recipe(s) you want to try, add 4 plates to your cart (note that you can add 4 plates of the same recipe or choose 2 plates from 2 different recipes), enter the promo code 30OFF at checkout, and you’ll pay $42 delivered! And keep in mind that they have gluten-free options, vegetarian options etc.

I ordered a meal for the family with this code AND it was amazing! We selected the Pork and Pineapple Stir-Fry with Napa and Purple Cabbage and were all pleasantly surprised by how delicious everything was. And I actually enjoyed preparing this in the kitchen (possibly because I didn’t have to do all that much! 😉 ).

I also ordered a meal for our ‘HIP’ Modern Martha, Lina (Pomegranate Lamb Kebabs with Cucumber Mint Raita and Smashes Potatoes). Fancy, right? 🙂 I was very curious to see what she thought of this concept before posting. Since she loves to cook and is great at it (unlike me!), I wanted to make sure that she thought it was worth the expense etc. So with that being said, check out her feedback AND fantastic pictures…

Plated.com Lam Kebabs Review Hip2SaveWe loved our plated.com meal! It was such a fun, unique, gourmet quality dinner to make at home and it tasted great! It’s so exciting to cook with beautiful fresh herbs and shallots 🙂 . Everything came delivered fresh, chilled, labeled, and premeasured in an insulated box. We especially enjoyed the pomegranate glaze with the lamb and the cucumber raita was so fresh and delicious. I’ll definitely be making the easy smashed potatoes again! 

Cooking a plated.com meal Hip2SaveI love that this is a meal I would never thought of before, and I didn’t have to do the meal planning or grocery shopping. I followed the easy instructions and it turned out exactly as it said. The only thing I did differently was cook the meat longer until the inside was fully cooked, which took mine longer. Overall, our experience was enjoyable!

And guess what? I just talked to Lina the other day and she let me know that she has actually ordered 2 more meals from Plated! 🙂 So what are YOU waiting for? Order here and let us know what you think.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.

When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
