You’ve heard us say how much time using Beehive Meals saves you, but did you also know it can help keep those pennies in your pocket? Yep—utilizing Beehive Meals on a regular basis will help you save money per serving for your family.
If you’re still on the fence about subscribing to Beehive Meals because of your budget, look no further: we’ve broken it down, and it’s easy to see that Beehive Meals is the way to go if you want a little more wiggle room in your grocery budget.
Cost of Beehive Meals per serving
When you place your first order with Beehive Meals, it might look like a huge ding to your budget upfront. But take a look at the numbers:
If you choose to order a one-time delivery of 10 meals, at the regular portion size, you’ll get 60 servings of food for $209.00. That’s only $3.48 a serving of delicious food! If you subscribe, you’ll save even more, as it drops to $3.13 per serving.
Beehive Meals vs. eating out
One of our favorite things about Beehive Meals is that you can put a meal on your table that is just as delicious as what you would be served at a restaurant—for a fraction of the price.
Let’s look at one meal as a case study.
If you popped the Chicken Alfredo in the slow cooker, added some fettuccine, a couple breadsticks, and a green salad, you’d be feeding a family of 6 for around $30. If you were to go to a restaurant and order the exact same thing, you’re probably looking at more than $100 for the dinner. Yeeeouch!
Save yourself some cash and eat the same delectable meal in the comfort of your own home.
Beehive Meals vs other meal services
Ok, so let’s say you don’t eat out because the cost is astronomical for your family of 6. We totally get that. But you still don’t want to pull everything together from scratch, so meal service it is.
First you’ll have to pick one. We’ll go with the cheapest one we could find, according to U.S. News World Report, which costs about $4.69+ per serving (plus shipping!). Ok, so that’s a decent starting price. BUT—you have to cook and prep everything. We all know time is money, and this particular service takes around 30 minutes every day to get ready, plus cooking time.
Beehive Meals vs. cooking from scratch
A few years ago, Forbes conducted a pretty extensive study on the cost of an average meal in the United States. They looked at restaurants, delivery, take-out, meal kits, and making your meal from scratch. Based on their data, making a meal from scratch—gathering every ingredient yourself and prepping everything on your own—resulted in about $4.31 per serving.
So all the time, all that grocery shopping, prepping, seasoning, cooking, etc., still wasn’t able to beat popping a Beehive Meal in a slow cooker, adding a side, and voila—delicious meal ready to go.
Save money—save time
The truth is, you can have it all: time with your family and a delicious, budget friendly meal. When we started Beehive Meals, we wanted to give our friends and neighbors their time back, without sacrificing nutrition and taste. We also gave back to their grocery budget at the same time.
If you’re ready to save time and money that can be put to another use (vacay anyone?), then subscribe to Beehive Meals right now. We can’t wait to see what you make.
