My husband and I have been doing this since April, he has
lost 22 lbs and I have lost 14!  I have 4 small children and this
meal plan has changed our lives. They eat what we eat and
I'm no longer spending hours looking for recipes and writing
out grocery lists. Even if I weren't trying to lose weight I
would still use this meal planning service for the
convenience it offers. And your customer service is simply
TOPS. I recommend this to any and everyone!
I just had to write and say thank you so very, very much.
Because of you, I'm recommitting to family dinners. I've
always know planning meals was important, it's always
been something I hated, so I just rationalized avoiding it.  
Shrinking On a Budget Meal Plans has taken that
unpleasant task off my plate. Now, I grocery shop once for
the week and hang the meal plan on the refrigerator. I
actually have an answer for "What's For Dinner?"
I've a new subscriber and just had to write and say how
awesome the meals are.  My kids are both a bit overweight,
as am I and your meal plans have made it possible for me
to make low-fat dinners that they will actually eat.  
We're all losing weight in a healthy manner.

I adore Pinterest but honestly don’t have a lot of time to
spend there. And I found that I hardly ever actually
cooked the recipes I Pinned.  I have one picky eater and
one son who has been choices".  Your plans almost
seemed too perfect to be true! 3 months into it, I like the
vast majority of the recipes you’ve sent us.  The food is
amazing and I have lost some weight in the process (a nice
Our afternoons and evenings are packed with work/sports
etc... I found myself not planning our dinners.  So I would
come home from work, realize we had to be at practice in a
hour, and either grab take-out or feed my kids sandwich or
cereal.  Now that meals are planned and groceries are
waiting for me when I get home, I'm getting dinner on the
table 4-5 nights a week.  My husband and kids thank you!
I'm a mom who works from home as well as homeschools
her 4 kids, I was excited to see that your plans included
breakfasts, lunches and snacks too.  You've made my day
much less hectic.
I don't usually write in about products. But I have to tell you I
love the food.   And so do my kids.  Dinner hour isn't as nuts
as it once was. And did I mention I've lost 25 pounds? This is
a game changer.  A thousand thanks!
My kids are loving what I make for dinner now every night.   
I'm a stay at home Dad and not much of a cook so that is
saying a lot. Dinner is much less of a whine fest. I've become
very dependent on your meal plans so please keep those
amazing recipe coming..
My grocery costs have dropped a lot since starting  your
plan. I take my grocery list with me to the store and buy
only what I need.  I'm staying away from the unhealthy and
expensive convenience foods.  You've also got me
checking my pantry before I buy which helps.  Recipes are
I signed up with your plan with a promotional deal, thinking it
was worth it just to  have Points Plus calculated for me. I
never expected to love the meals so much!  Your recipes
are always delicious. And I would never guess they are
PointsPlus friendly.  But my waistline tells the story.  My
whole family says thanks!
We recently had a scare when our pediatrician determined
my Picky Eater son was overweight.  A friend
recommended \your meal plans and, after reviewing them, I
realized that  your plans are based on healthy principles,
and even had our pediatrician give it the "thumbs-up".  
We're happy to report our son is losing  the weight and his
self-esteem is soaring.  I cook one of your dinners every
night for our family and my son is actually helping on
occasion.  And I love how they fit into our hectic schedule
that is busy with sports and homework. I know you aren't an
"official weight loss program", but we appreciate what you
You have made my load as a single mom much lighter. I used
to think about dinner while I’m busy and stressed at work;
then have to trudge through the grocery store crowd before
I make my way to get my son from daycare. Thanks to your
plans I now have  dinner planned and had all the ingredients
at home.  And your recipes are goof proof (even for someone
like me who hates to cook).  
I love how your recipes are like comfort food without the
guilt.  I'm a newlywed and my new hubster thinks I'm a
instructions for us kitchen novices are mucho appreciated.

I have been able to do Weight Watchers for Free" using
your plan and the instructions on Freckleberry Fit.  We
have  thoroughly enjoyed your service.  We can't thank you
enough for making this service so affordable.
As a single Mom, this service has changed my life.  I'm
actually tossing out the "fat clothes".
When we ordered your meal plan service, we decided that I
was going to jump in with both feet. That being said, to give
you a short background I am from the mid west. You know -
totally a beef and potatoes kind of girl - and so is my family.
Well tonight we decided to make the Crispy Fish Toes.  We've
made fish before and it was a  disaster but like I said we are
jumping in with two feet in the deep end) I have to tell you
though my family LOVED them. They could not get enough. I
was so happy, with the result. It was the first time that we did
not just immediately want to throw it away. Even my picky
eater, the 3 year old, ate the fish and salad without a fight. I
can't wait to make the rest of the recipes on the list.

I can't tell you enough how much of a game changer
shrinkingonabudget is for my family.  I rely on it so much,
it's my go-to first for planning dinner and making snacks
and breakfast!!! I grab the binder and flip through recipes
as I plan my menu for the week and five out of seven days
are usually your recipes.  I've referred many of my friends
to your website

I've lost 20 pounds (and counting) using your meal plans and
your Weight Watchers for Free Bootcamp.  I can't thank you
enough for providing this service.  I couldn't afford to join
Weight Watchers but desperately needed to lose the weight.
I am doing the Weight Watchers Bootcamp using your
recipes and really don't even feel like I am dieting.  You
have all been so great and supportive when I had
questions.  I know I been a pest!  Thanks so much for all you
do. I can tell you all care very much about your subscribers.

The 15 Minute Dinners have been a lifesaver for my family.  
My kids are all involved in sports so it is a rare weeknight
that I have time to cook even a 30 minute dinner.  Every
recipe we have tried has been delicious.

Loving the 15 Minute Dinners!  My teenage boys love the
recipes so much that they volunteer to cook dinner at least
twice a week.  As a single Dad, I think cooking is an
important skill for them to learn but just honestly don't have
the time to teach them. Your recipes are easy enough for a
beginner.  Thanks for providing such a wonderful service.
