I don’t have a computer but at work and I’m not allowed to download programs onto my personal computer. Printing the coupons requires a program to be downloaded that I’m not allowed. Sorry
Whatever changes that were recently made make it difficult for me to access the recipe when I click on the link using my phone to read the site, and I find that often the recipes, while within the $5 price, are really high in sodium, carbs, fat and calories. That’s not healthy. You can put a lot of vegetables in a recipe, but if it’s swimming in sodium, it’s not healthy. I do not find many recipes on this site that I would actually fix as written due to those concerns.
I am very sorry. I have too many emails everyday, and serval recipes from a ton of website. This website looks like it has great recipes I just have not used one of them yet. I need to down size my email intake.

Were All Gluten free, plus have many other food sensitivities as eggs, cheese, milk.

I have unsubscribed because the recipes and meal plans just didn’t fit into my weight loss and maintenance plan. Also, geared toward families. I’m single.
Some of the recipes truly I do not see how they can be $5 or less. Maybe you have some stores I don’t have. My other reason is that I rarely make anything from your site. Most of them are “trendy” and my family is more “meat and potatoes” (although not literally). Add that to food sensitivities (like diabetes–try eating diabetic on $5 a meal) and you and I are just on totally different worlds.

It’s just not my style of cooking, it’s just my husband and I and I am looking for quick and easy.
While the recipes sound interesting,the ones I saw have a lot of pasta or bread(something my family is trying to avoid due to high carbs) or high salt content (which I know can be omitted or reduced). The biggest reason I am unsubscribing is the emails and website crashed my computer 3 times.
I accidentally signed up twice; I’m hoping canceling this will keep my other one active.
Your emails and Facebook page have lots of information and great recipes. However, I have been using my pressure cooker more and using recipes from book that came with it.

I only have a work computer and am not allowed to download to it. Maybe I can restart when I get my own computer at home, but for now just doesn’t work for me.
I’ve had at least 11 emails from your site in 4 days. Too much! Also, the coupons don’t work in Canada.
I originally thought the concept of your site was interesting (which is why I signed up in the first place), but your newsletters are confusing and difficult to read – they are very cluttered and it’s hard to figure out exactly what it is you’re trying to get across…. Where are the recipes? Are you trying to sell us something? Are you re-hashing weekly ads from grocery stores? I’m just confused. Sorry!!
I really like your concept, coupons, etc. I’m just overwhelmed with emails in general. The menus were good, very well organized, and many could learn from you on that organization piece. The seasonings and spices needed more work in some cases. Enough so, that my husband asked me to look for another source. I’m not a good enough cook to make many adaptations in seasonings. I could tell by the postings, and contact that you have a great a personality and such good intentions with the site.
I no longer eat any animal products, and since most of your recipes contain meat and dairy, the content is no longer relevant.
I would love just a weekly wrap up type email, but getting an email everyday is just getting to be too much.

We do have an option for a once a week email 🙂
Kathy Price says
im sorry, I receive a lot of email anyway, and half of the ones I receive from you are trying to sell me more services. I will be cancelling my subscription.

I have appreciated all the ideas of the low cost meals and seem to be doing quite well with my meal planning once again 🙂 Thank you for the ideas. I have about as many different ideas I need for my small family of me and my husband 🙂 May God continue to bless you as you help other women along the way.
