One of the best parts of my job is that I get to work from home. This also means that a lot of times I am far more involved in running the household than most guys in my demographic. Claire has a hugely successful career as an environmental lawyer, which comes with a lot of late nights at the office. I do my best to support her by doing most of the cooking and cleaning on the weeks she's prepping her cases. Recently, I came across Blue Apron meal delivery service on Blue Apron Reviews and decided to test it out. We now order the service weekly, which has made those crazy, hectic weeks so much easier to manage because it saves extra trips to the grocery store. In case any of you are looking into subscribing, here's some helpful info based upon my experience:
Blue Apron allows you to choose meals for 2 or the family plan. As a family of 4, we get the family plan, which comes with 4 recipes a week and 4 servings per recipe. We've found that with the kids being small, they often can't eat an entire serving, so we end up with leftovers which are perfect for lunch the next day. You select which day you want meals delivered every week and then start getting boxes once a week. The service allows you to easily go in and skip a week if you're going to be out of town or just don't like the menu options for that particular week.
When you sign up, you can indicate if there are any proteins you want to stay away from, for instance, we opted to get recipes that include fish, chicken, beef, and pork, but not shellfish since Claire and the kids aren't into that. Beyond that, Blue Apron doesn't really cater to any dietary restrictions like gluten-free or nut-free. It works for us, since thankfully neither of our kiddos has any known food allergies. With the 2-meal family plan and the two-person plan, you do have the option of selecting from a variety of meals, so I imagine you could avoid certain foods if you were wanting to. I'm hoping that one day they come out with Blue Apron Paleo, but I'm happy with the freshness and quality of the ingredients until then.
Now quality time is spent at home in the kitchen instead of running out to different restaurants to collect our take out and trying to rush the kids through eating to put them in bed. I no longer have to spend time and energy thinking about what to do for dinner. Many afternoons after picking up the kids from school, we have homework time, and then they act as my sous chefs helping me put dinner together. Not only are we creating lasting family memories, but Blue Apron is helping teach my kids all about the art of cooking, which I think has been greatly diluted in current generations. Friday night dinner has become a recent tradition. Claire makes it a point to come home on time and we all get to cook together as a family. As cheesy as it sounds, Blue Apron has really helped me be a better husband and father, and I would highly recommend it!
Speaking of, I just checked and our Blue Apron delivery tracker says it's on the truck for delivery right now. The kids are really excited about making Meatball Ragout together which I'm anticipating will be followed by a showing of Ratatouille.
Moving is stressful. We were reminded of this recently when we moved Claire’s parents from their home in Houston to a retirement community in Austin so they can be closer to us. One of the most stressful parts of moving is the cost. Claire really wanted to hire professional movers to do all the packing and unpacking since my in-laws are approaching their 70s and too much physical labor is exhausting. Trying to be the best son-in-law and husband possible, I set out to find a cheap, but reliable moving company in the Houston area. Based on my search, here are some helpful tips for securing a reasonably priced moving company if you find yourself moving this summer:
You may have your heart set on moving on a certain date. However, if you are flexible with your dates, then you will be able to save a lot of money on the cost of moving. For example, if you move on a weekday instead of the weekend, rates are typically lower, because movers usually set a higher minimum for the weekend. You may also want to avoid moving during the peak season, unless absolutely necessary. Demand is particularly high from June to August, because school’s out and the weather is warm. When we agreed to schedule the move for a Monday rather than a Saturday, the mover took a few hundred bucks off of the price.
Shopping around will likely get you the best deal on your upcoming move. I went through cheapmovershouston.net, which allowed me to compare prices from local Houston movers that had already gone through the screening process to ensure that they carried the proper licensing and insurance. Based on the quotes I received, I was able to narrow my search to 2 moving companies that then came out and did an in-home estimate at my in-laws’. We ended up going with one who offered a slightly lower rate on full-service moves.
The less belongings you have, the more you will save on moving. Spend some time going through your things and getting rid of stuff you no longer need. My in-laws had 30+ years of items accumulated in their 5-bedroom home that simply wouldn’t fit into their new 2-bedroom garden home. Claire spent a few weekends helping them go through everything, claiming a few great antiques for herself and her sister, and donating the rest to MAM, a local non-profit thrift shop in Houston. The deduction on the in-laws’ tax return will probably come close to paying for most of the moving bill.
You can save money by booking your moving company early. Ideally, you should book your company two or three months before the move. If you book at the last minute, then you will pay a premium. It is also important to note that you may have trouble booking a moving company if you wait until the last minute. Moving companies are very busy, and their schedules fill up fast.
While you will pay more upfront for insurance, it can help you save money in the long-run if something should go awry during the move. All movers in Texas are required to carry a basic liability policy covering damage of goods at $.60/pound. Other states have similar requirements for transportation companies. So if the moving truck is carrying 5000 lbs. of your belongings, and gets swept into a river and carried away, you’ll only get $3000 from the insurance company. This amount probably won’t even come close to replacing even your living room set. You can buy supplemental transit insurance, and sometimes your belongings will also be covered by your renter or homeowner’s policy . Call your insurance agent and read the fine print to be on the safe side.
