Maximizing Your Food Resources - Dinner By Design

About 6 weeks ago my wife and I started using a company called Dinner by Design for most of our meals. Since then, I have noticed considerably less waste from the food we purchase.

Dinner by Design allows you to prepare about 1 month's worth of meals for 2 people. They do all of the shopping and portioning and provide great menus for weekly dinners. You simple arrive and assemble the meals. You then take home 24 meals in a couple of laundry baskets and freeze them until you need to use them. When my wife and I work together, we can put together all of the meals in about an hour. The current price is $219 (about $3 - $5 per serving).

Last month we used every bit of food that we purchase. Zero waste. This is a great improvement from doing our own grocery shopping. At Dinner by Design, you only purchase what you will use for each serving. No more, no less. No need to buy bag of carrots when you only need a few.

The meals are tasty and healthy and we've enjoyed the variety. We're hooked at this point and intend on visiting the store every month.
