Q. I don’t use credit cards, can I pay with a check?
A. We only take payments via paypal. They also process debit cards and bank transfers if you prefer not to use a credit card.
Q. I’m nervous about signing up for a subscription. How long am I committed for? How do I unsubscribe?
A. Your subscription is just for $5 a month one month at a time. You can unsubscribe any time by simply clicking on the unsubscribe link under the dashboard heading on this website. But please take note: the unsubscribe button works instantly! That means if you subscribe and hit unsubscribe before getting all of the month’s menu’s, you won’t get the rest of the months’ menus. There are no refunds.
Q. How much money will I spend on food using the menus?
A. That’s up to you. Your shopping methods will impact your budget the most. I have planned the menus with every day low cost foods; and use similar ingredients week in and week out to cook a huge variety of foods. This way you can predict what you will use over a month and start to build a pantry of these items when you see them go on sale. I also plan seasonal produce (USA seasons) and trending low cost items (For example chicken breasts are at a 3 year low right now, so I am using them more than I used to.) Feel free to substitute ingredients if you find a better deal; or adjust the amounts in the shopping list if you know your family doesn’t like an item or won’t eat as much of it.
Q. How do I access my menu?
A. Once you subscribe, create a login profile. After you are logged in You will find the link to download the menu under the Menu’s tab. I leave each menu up for one week and then replace it with the new week’s menu on Friday at noon.
Q. Help! I tried to login but it says my membership was cancelled. I didn’t cancel it. What happened?
A. A membership will automatically cancel on the renewal date if the payment doesn’t go through. Usually this is because a new card was issued and needs to be updated with paypal. You can resubscribe and update the card info, then instead of creating a new login; sign in as an existing member with your old username and password. This should link everything together.
