Anyone use meal planning tools?

As a New Years resolution I am striving to plan my meals better. This past year I did e mealz and hot by six -- both I liked but they were each missing something. E mealz - I found it used a lot of packaged stuff or things my family wouldn't eat. Hot by Six - was a bit more make ahead and freeze -- and I found that it didn't work for our schedules either. So I'm on the hunt to find something that works for us. I've been tweeking a few online templates and making them work, but what do you use?

Thanks
Erica

Popped over here to ask the same question! I just added "Mealboard" to my i-phone but haven't even opened the app yet. Looking forward to hearing what works for other mamas!

I've subscribed to Saving Dinner. They have changed their options over the years and have a weekly emailed meal plan, or a "build your own" based on a few menus she has, which then generates the shopping list. While not the MOST exciting meals, they are family friendly and easy, and include a lot of vegetables and not too much processed food. They have a sample menu to check out before committing to buy, too.
