What is $5 Meal Plan?

$5 Meal Plan is a weekly meal plan service that can make your meal planning as simple as possible.

We surveyed 2,134 families and, on average, they spent two hours a week on meal planning. Those same families say they hate meal planning because it's time consuming, boring, stressful, and they'd much rather spend that time with their families!

For just $5 a month, we will send you a delicious meal plan where every meal will cost about $2 per person, and in most cases less. (Erin makes these meals for her family of 6 for $5 per meal!)

We will save you money, save you time, and save you the stress of having to spend hours each week planning your meals instead of enjoying quality time with your family, unwinding with your favorite show/book/beverage, or whatever else you'd rather be doing!

What Our Members Are Saying

$5 Dinners has done a great job with the new $5 meal plan. The recipes are easy to read and follow. The grocery list is well organized and user friendly. Overall, it is a great meal planning service!


Nampa, ID

$5 Meal Plan is wonderful! The recipes are frugal yet everything I have ever tried has tasted great and, most importantly, my family likes them. $5 Dinners is great!


Wilmington, DE

It's very user friendly and is simpler than anything else I've tried. I LOVE the icons that quickly describe the meals (as a mom of 2 young ones who contribute to my scatterbrain, that is so helpful!). I used to take hours planning meals and this is simple enough to cut down my planning time significantly!


Saskatchewan, CAN

$5 Meal Plan has helped me change from super frazzled to Super Mom in the kitchen! Erin's family friendly, frugal meals are full of healthy, wholesome ingredients and easy to follow directions. The detailed shopping list makes grocery shopping a breeze. I'm so happy to have an expert do the planning for me so I can enjoy cooking again.


Louisville, KY

I love $5 Meal Plan. The shopping list is so easy to use, I love the layout and the recipes are easy to read and to prepare!. I check off what I already have at home then go to the store for the remainder. My shopping trips take so much less time and I don't over spend. My sons love the meals and have made request for some of them again. I recommend $5 Meal Plan for anyone who hates meal planning and shopping.


Berlin, WI

My favorite thing about the $5 Meal Plan is that it has taken the planning time away for me for meals that are budget minded. Planning meals takes time and creating a shopping list takes even more time – $5? I feel as though I should be sending you that as a gift card to get a coffee or yogurt as a thank you for saving me the headache! :)

Do you have these questions or concerns?

"How do I know if I (or my family/kids) will like it?"

We offer a 14-day trial of the service, absolutely free. That means you will see forty recipes during your trial to figure out if we're right for you. Also, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee so if you decide, even after you pay, that it's not a good fit - let us know and we'll give you a complete refund. Our plans aren't for everyone but if you're reading this, chances are they will work for you and we just ask that you give us 14 days to prove it to you.

"I'm not sure I'll even use the plan."

Think about the last time you ordered takeout - how much did you spend? Our meals in the plan are delicious and cost less than $2 per person... and all of them I've been able to make for less than $5 for my entire family. Talk about budget-friendly! Avoid just one takeout order a month and this plan has more than paid for itself. Cut out two and you're practically making money. Plus, you'll be eating better, saving time, and spending more quality time with your family around the dinner table.

"My family has dietary restrictions."

The $5 Meal Plan has two plans - Classic and Gluten Free (click here for the Gluten Free 14-day trial). Because I deal with multiple food allergies and intolerances in our family, we lean towards recipes that make for easy and straightforward substitutions or changes. I'm acutely aware of the challenges that you go through and create plans with that in mind.

"How does the guarantee work?"

If you are not satisfied, for any reason whatsoever, just let us know and we'll refund your last payment immediately. It's as simple as that.
