When you can’t get to the grocery store or need a little help in the kitchen, meal delivery kits are an easy solve. The only problem is that they can get a little pricey! Dinnerly, however, is the most affordable meal delivery kit, with portions starting at only $4.99.

OK, let’s do the math: That means that a two-person Dinnerly box with four meals (two-servings each) will cost you about $48, including shipping for $8.99. The family-sized Dinnerly box for four people with four meals (four servings each) will run you about $84 (also including shipping). Comparatively, most other meal kits start around $7 per serving and can run well over $60 per two-person box.

The reason that Dinnerly is so much cheaper than other brands comes down to a few details. According to the brand’s website, they utilize digital recipe cards instead of paper ones, use less ingredients per dish (which also means easier recipes) and it forgoes elaborate marketing campaigns (hence, why you may have never heard of Dinnerly).

Dinnerly definitely doesn’t skimp out on delicious ingredients and recipes though. Choose between meals like herbed chicken and pan gravy with Greek yogurt mashed potatoes, shrimp Alfredo pasta, chicken tacos, creamy tomato and basil risotto with spinach and more. There’s something for everyone! Each recipe also includes nutrition information and a level of difficulty, although most are easy.

While Dinnerly is a subscription based box, you can skip weeks so you only pay for a box of food when you want it. Just choose your delivery day, choose your meals, get cooking and enjoy easy-to-make, delicious meals at home.
