Time and Money Saver: The Six O'Clock Scramble

There was recent discussion amongst NAPO organizers about an on-line dinner planning service called The Six O'Clock Scramble (www.thescramble.com) that I wanted to share with you. It sounds like a time AND money saver. And who couldn't use more time and money, right?

Each week Six O'Clock Scramble subscribers receive:

  • Five family-tested, healthy, delicious, and quick dinner recipes that take 30 minutes or less to prepare
  • An organized grocery list so you can grocery shop just once per week
  • A searchable database where you can customize your weekly dinner plan
  • Your own recipe box where you can save you family's favorite 30-minute meals
  • A newsletter with useful tips for easier mealtime, snacks, and lunches
  • Nutritional information for each recipe to help you take charge of your health
Several NAPO organizers said that their lives have been so much easier since subscribing to this service. And it's not just for busy moms! I saw a testimonial on the site from a couple who are recent empty-nesters, and they described how they have been able to save money on groceries because they are only buying what they know they will use in a given week.

Plus it's healthier than eating out because The Scramble emphasizes whole grains, lean proteins, and lots of fruits and vegetables. And if you have special dietary needs such as vegetarian or Kosher, you can swap out any meal with a selection from the Scramble database.

Finally, I love their recipe box feature too. They say on the FAQ section that they will even keep your recipe box for up to a year after your subscription ends.
