    Default Anyone used hello fresh or similar?

    Was just wondering whether anybody has used hello fresh or a similar alternative (they send you a package each week with ingredients for 3 recipes). I don't like the idea of being tied into something but once I've started looking into how much I spend on food I think I probably end up spending more as I'm always buying extra things I don't really need while at the shops. Im also finding it stressful trying to decide what to cook every day and end up going shopping pretty much every day which is fine as it gets me out the house but I'm going to have another baby in 2 weeks so probably won't have as much time.

    Just interested to know if people think it's worth it if they have tried hello fresh.

    I haven't, but a friend of mine has and thought it was awesome. I think the recipes are quite gourmet and expensive? I meal plan, then get a fruit and veg box delivery every week, do Coles online once a week, and go to the butcher once a fortnight- cuts down on impulse buying and time spent shopping! Oh and visit the bakery whenever we need bread.

    I used hello fresh as I had a $30 off voucher. The food was great but I still had to cook and even with $30 off it was a bit expensive, especially as you don't get to choose which recipes you want.

    I think meal planning and online good shopping from that food plan is just as convenient and cheaper and you get to eat exactly what you want.

    We have been using it for a few months and are really happy with it. It makes life much easier for us working full time and not having to think/plan what to have for dinner. Plus it gives us all sorts of different recipes that we wouldn't have tried ourselves. I'm a big impulse buyer so if I go in to get things for dinner than I always end up spending close to $100. Never sure on what!

    We have it set to fortnightly so still have some weeks to plan ourselves. It definitely makes our lives easier at the moment. Might be different when I'm at home more!
