Designer dinner dishes with all the trimmings.  Does your family meal look this good? 
       
"I love to cook but this has made cooking so much easier for me.  I don't have to shop for the food.  It just comes directly to my house."
 
Mia Redrick, the Mom Strategist says when both parents are working, and juggling busy schedules, sometimes you need help with a home meal solution.
 
One of her favorites, the Home Chef.
 
"In essence, you just go online and you select which type of meal you would like and whether you want fish, chicken, seafood or whatever it is that you're looking for and the number of meals that you would like delivered for your family."
 
Redrick says the meals usually take 20 to 25 minutes to prepare and it's not as expensive as you might think.
 
"For the quality of the food, and meals and the ease of time it's not.  I'm spending about seventy dollars a week for three meals to support a family of four."
 
But if that doesn't fit your budget, Redrick says there are other options. Wegmans has the Insta-Cart.
 
"You just go online, chose your groceries, but you can also choose the prepared options, maybe your vegetables are pre-chopped, maybe fruit salad whatever it is for dinner you can just pick those things and they're delivered to your front door."
 
Some stores offer curbside delivery, another time-saving option.
 
"A lot of people love that curbside service by Shop Rite because they accept coupons.  They double a lot of coupons, and so if you're a couponer it's really a deal."
 
"You don't have to shop around in the store.  Your groceries are packed and you just go into customer service and pay for your groceries that's it."
 
Not only do these suggestions make your life a little easier, Redrick says they can also make your meals a little exciting.
 

"My children love being able to go online and choose whatever they're going to eat next week.  It takes the boredom away for me too because I get tired of making the same things over and over."
