For tight budgets

With a few tweaks, Dinner Elf can be more affordable for tight budgets. 

Update your favorites

Limit your favorites to the least expensive items on the menu.

1
In your favorites, update your filter to "Budget."
2
Click "I only want budget".

Now when picking menus for your appointments, you'll only see budget options.

💡 For variety, add a few casseroles. They're more expensive, but their portion sizes are huge. 

Select family size

For the best bang-for-your-buck, select family-size dinners. 

  • They're twice the size of 2-person size dinners. 
  • Your ingredient cost will increase some, but your $124 service fee remains the same. 
  • Even if you're not feeding a family, freeze extra food for leftovers.
