A new site browses local sales at your favorite grocery stores and builds healthy and budget friendly shopping lists! I am happy to provide access so you can create your own lists and try this new service.
Build A Menu is an online menu planning service that prepares weekly meal plans based on your local grocery store sales. The site does the work for you! Choose from weekly recipes and put together weekly menus using the Build A Menu calculator which gives a running total of your expected grocery costs – making it easy to control how much the family will spend on food each week! Just pick the store you want to shop, choose your meals and print your well organized grocery shopping list and chosen recipes. Menu options include Family Friendly, Low Fat, Sensible Portions (Uses the latest Points System), Vegetarian, Low Carb and Gluten Free.
