We’ve been kicking around the never Leave home again (Unless You really want To) guide for new parents for a long time now. Over on our local site, we call it the home delivery guide and go deep into everyone who will bring me a hot dinner on a given weeknight.

Be we can go bigger than that!

Disclaimer: yes, rookie mommies must leave the house every day for fun and adventure. but that doesn’t indicate you have to run all your own damn errands, right?

Nom Nom, time to eat again

Seriously, three meals every day? and snacks?! I can’t tell you exactly why prepping food becomes a lot more than twice as hard, but it does.

Meal prep:
Blue Apron is a happiness for date night or for the parents of one small (barely on solids) baby who wish they had the creativity to plan unusual meals and the wherewithal to shop for them. I tried them for my family of five before they started family-size boxes. I found it way too complicated for the every day.

Similar service is used by HelloFresh, Gobble, and Plated. If you like this type of service, you must absolutely try them all to see which meal style best suits your family. lots of offer complimentary or deep discounts for the first box. Plated aims for 30 minutes or less from box to dinnertime while Gobble thinks you can put their dinners together in ten minutes. This I gotta try!

Freshly goes one step beyond the assembly kits and uses chef prepared meals delivered to your door. They claim to be very fresh and healthy but I found the dishes lacking in yummyness.

Restaurant Delivery:
Don’t want to put your meal together from a kit? Megértelek. There are so lots of services who will place your order, pick up the food, and drive it to your house, I can’t see why you and your baby would ever have to brave wintertime to pick up Thai food again. Seriously, check out TryCaviar, GrubHub, DoorDash, PostMates, or Eat24. look for weekly vouchers in email.

Clothes without the shopping

Stitch fix is my go-to stylist within the internet. each month — or less often if I like — a personal buyer attempts to match my size, shape, style, and clothing needs with her massive inventory using sophisticated algorithms and a dash of pinterest. I have had the best luck with dresses because the outfit is instantly DONE. The possibility of the next best fix keeps me going back for more, I’ve been a customer for about 18 months now.

Read about my experiences with stitch Fix

Eyeglasses are not strictly fashion but they are also not meatballs, so I’m including them here. Whitney had a great experience with Warby Parker for trying, choosing, and getting new glasses. That said, she did have to leave the house for her optometry appointment. There’s no app for that yet.

Don’t forget Amazon! Whitney has heard me say, is my favorite pants store. I have purchased lots of good and horrible items of clothing. So, if you want to round out your fixes in nearly-real-time, check out the large variety of choices on the world’s largest book store.

When I do a search on the app, I always like to filter by prime and then the best examined product to save me time. then I can sort by price or whatever. normally speaking, Prime purchases are returnable and refundable up to about a month, which is great because they’re not all winners.

Zeel uses same-day in-home massages. Is there a better way to spend naptime? I tried a similar service and loved it! It wasn’t in any way creepy to have a stranger set up a massage table in front of my TV so I could get naked for a rub-down; instead, it was a delight. mostly on the east Coast, there are now massage therapists out near us.
