Deals to Meals takes the guesswork out of what’s on sale and what’s for dinner. Our website gives you access to weekly grocery deals in all 50 states. Deals are ranked as good, great or stock up deals. We also provide a delicious meal planner based around those sale items.
I’m Shandra, the owner of Deals to Meals (along with my handsome hubby, Todd). As long as I can remember, I have been passionate about saving money, budgeting and self reliance. This passion started with my parents. Through their example, I learned how to be responsible with my money. I even had to buy my own deodorant and shampoo as a teenager!
My husband, Todd, and I are childhood sweethearts. We have known each other since we were six. He is my best friend. We have five busy children ages 6-16. We truly love our crazy and hectic life. Todd and I know that balancing family life, finances and a household can be overwhelming and stressful. We also know a few simple changes can improve the future and create a beautiful destiny.
After our five children were born, I began teaching cooking, grocery shopping and budgeting classes. Through lots of practice and patience, I learned how to be an outstanding chef, shopper and meal planner. I love sharing what I have learned with others!
I started a blog and found great joy in being able to help people all over the world. Friends, family and strangers began asking me for weekly updates on the best grocery deals for their area. They also wanted to use my recipes that went along with the deals.
I shared this information for one year, through weekly emails, for free. I loved seeing people realize how easy and fun it could be to save money and cook delicious meals for their families.
This is how Deals to Meals began!
This passion of mine has been an enormous blessing in our lives, as well as people all over the country. I have many passions in life; the most important ones being God and my family. A perfect day for me is being home with my family, hanging out in the kitchen, laughing, eating chocolate and enjoying great food. The kitchen is definitely the heart of our home and the place we grow the closest together. I love that I can share that with each of you.
Sit back, put your feet up, and stay awhile. We are here to help make your life easier and teach you how to live on less, save money and have more time to do the things you really love. Our goal is to inspire you to live a more self reliant and fulfilling life. Saving money and making delicious meals doesn’t have to be hard. You’ll find recipes, meal planning tips, grocery deals, financial help, food storage ideas and ways to make your family better.
Give our service a try! We’ll even give you FREE access for two weeks. That’s how confident we are that you’ll love what we have to offer. There is nothing to lose. If you don’t save, you don’t pay.
We’d love to hear from you! Contact us anytime at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
