Blue Apron Saves My Week


Sometimes my school schedule prevents me from grocery shopping for my own family. There, I said it. I shop for three foods classes during the school week and I try to do my family shopping on Fridays. Sometimes, I’m just too tired and don’t make it until Saturday morning which is not my favorite time. If I have weekend plans like this past one, I don’t shop until the following week. It’s a mad cycle of making list after list and shopping after shopping trip.

So, I decided to give Blue Apron a try. Blue Apron is a fresh ingredient and recipe delivery service that helps chefs of all levels cook incredible meals at home. That includes me :) I really needed this service when I didn’t have time to shop last Friday. Instead, I went to watch my daughter cheer and my football students play ball. I killed two birds in one stone.

Saturday morning I drove to SC to visit my parents. My oldest son decided not to adopt our foster dog because he wanted a puppy. Needless to say, we found the most adorable one in Greenville and brought it home on Sunday. I never made it to the grocery store until Tuesday.

I’ve neglected a big freezer cooking day and had very little to eat. That’s when I decided to give Blue Apron a chance. I’ve been pondering this idea since my colleague told me about it.

The idea of supporting local farmers and fresh ingredients delivered on ice intrigued me. I’m not one to pay for convenience, but it sounds so reasonable and looks fresh and delicious.

This Saturday, I’m receiving a box of refrigerated ingredients to make the following three meals. I’m thankful each recipe is under 30 minutes, though I prefer less. Pricing is $9.99 a meal and shipping is always free. I especially like the fact that I can skip any week and cancel any time. There’s also cooking tutorials to go along with each recipe. Now that’s right up my alley for my husband to cook the meal when I’m not at home, LOL.

I did my teacher homework and Blue Apron got better reviews compared to other delivery services here. I think this will be very helpful and delicious on my super busy school weeks. I’m looking forward to giving this a try, knowing I can skip as many weeks as I like, until I’m busy again.

I’m guessing some of you are busy like me and need to skip the grocery store. Blue Apron is my solution for my crazy weeks. As an affiliate, here’s some money back in your purse.
