Did you know the average family in the US spends $6,133 per year on food? That is almost 13% of your total income. You might be saying to yourself, well what am I supposed to do? We have to eat, right? What if I told you that the average household only spends $3,465 or 7% annually on food in the home? That means we are spending $2,668 or 5.4% annually on food away from the home.
Let’s take a step back and think about how we end up spending the money. Is it possible that the biggest problem we face are the days we forget to pack a lunch, make another run to the grocery store to pick up a few things, or we dodge the what’s for dinner question by ordering pizza?
The average eMeals’ customer says they save $1,000 a year. It’s not rocket science. Just like setting a budget for your family, eMeals offers the chance to stick to a plan, which reduces excess spending at the store and during the week. A simple plan is all it takes to get your spending under control.
