Sometimes there are little splurges that make all the difference in your life and a few of my team members are big fans of meal kits. Honestly, I just haven’t embraced these yet. It seems like a lot of money and it makes my deal lovin’ heart panic a little to think of paying full price for items I still have to take the time to prepare.

However, quite a few team members love the convenience, love being able to try new recipes that they wouldn’t try otherwise, and also love that nothing goes to waste since the ingredients are all perfectly portioned for each recipe.

With that said, I’m excited to let you all know that a few team members and I will be trying out THREE different meal boxes on a Facebook live tonight! 😮

Can they convince me that it’s worth the money?

Follow along on our Facebook Live Video HERE to see what we’re cooking up and how the whole process goes.

Want to grab a box of your own?

Marley & Spoon

Save a whopping $30 off your first box when you click through this link. There is no promo code needed – just click the yellow “Claim My Offer” button and the discount will be applied at checkout.

If you choose the 2 person plan for 2 meals per week, your total will be only $18 shipped after the $30 credit – that’s less than $5 per person per meal, which is a GREAT deal considering you’ll get things like grass-fed beef, Berkshire pork, American-caught shrimp, and artisan cheeses for your recipes! YUM!

Blue Apron

Blue Apron is currently offering new customers $40 off your first two boxes delivered straight to your doorstep!

To order, go here and click on the “Redeem Offer” link at the top and enter your email address. Next choose the 2-person plan where you’ll receive $20 off your first week at checkout and pay only $31.95 shipped (regularly $59.94) for TWO different recipes with enough food to feed 2 people per recipe.

Home Chef

Home Chef is offering $30 off your first box for new subscribers. Click on the link and  you’ll pay just $19.80 shipped for your first box.

I was excited about Home Chef as this one gives you the option to select low carb meals, perfect for my Keto lifestyle.

Note that all of these offers are for new subscribers only and you will be subscribing to future deliveries. BUT, you can cancel at any time. So try out a box and cancel if you don’t love it! Note that the Blue Apron offer requires the purchase of two boxes.

  • HIP List
  • Print

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 move 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, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, 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. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
