Our Story

Developed by Busy Moms for Busy Moms

"I knew there had to be a
better way!"

I’ll never forget being stressed about dinner every night, We were eating out way too much, spending too much money at restaurants and I never felt like the menu plans I found online worked for us because they were designed for people on diets and I had preschoolers, I needed food everyone would eat!

That’s why I started creating menu plans for real moms!

"I started menu planning to save money,
And ended up saving time!"

When our kids were little we were on a very strict budget. We had gone from 2 incomes to 1 and we needed to save money wherever we could.


I started menu planning to save money and discovered it actually saved me so much time and stress! 

From Tears to Triumph

I’ll never forget the night I broke down in tears trying to figure out what to have for dinner. I had spent all day chasing after 3 little kids we were headed out the door to T-Ball practice for my oldest son and I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner so that we didn’t end up going through a drive-thru again.

I felt like there wasn't an easy option.

We didn’t have the money to eat out every night, but in that moment the weight of making one more decision was paralyzing, 

I remember feeling so overwhelmed by even small decisions and I knew I needed to come up with a better system, I needed a Plan! Something easy to follow, with meals my family would eat, and something that didn’t require hours of planning or cooking because time was something I didn’t have a lot of.

Hi! My name is Heather Schisler and I’ve been helping moms save their time, money, and sanity since 2009! I originally created the Grocery Pick Up Menu Plans on my blog PassionForSavings.com in 2011 after I had countless readers asking me where to find the recipes I was cooking each night.

I put all of my recipes together into 6-week menu plans so that busy moms everywhere could use my system of pre-planned menus and shopping lists to get dinner on the table without eating out.
