Helpful Tips for Parents on the Go!

Being a busy parent can be a challenge to make time to go shopping for yourself, go to the grocery store, walk the dog, feed your family dinner and make sure the kids take a bath within a 24 hour period. Not only is it exhausting, but you are constantly on the go and it makes it tough to spend quality time with your family. If you are a Camden resident you might even find it challenging to use the amazing amenities around your apartment community. Even though these amenities are right outside your front door; taking a dip in the pool, playing with the kids at the playground or making sure your pet gets exercise at the dog park can be tough to fit into your busy day.
I have gathered a few tools that I and a few of my fellow Simply Camden parents use to make our hectic lives a little easier.
Meal delivery services are awesome! Dinner for the week is delivered directly to your door. This is a perfect way to have all my ingredients that I need in a neat little box ready, measured and sometimes already chopped for me. All I have to do is put everything together. A few of my fellow Camden bloggers had great experiences with Hello Fresh, Plated, Blue Apron, and Home Chef. Check out their blogs to see which one is right for you and your family.

Going to the grocery store with a toddler to pick up a few items can easily take me a half an hour, not to mention the few “extra” items that get added to the cart. We have to stop for a cookie at the bakery, wait in line at the meat counter for fresh sliced deli meat… Instacart to the rescue! All you have to do is log on to their website, order exactly what you need, and it will be delivered to you at a set time. Quick and easy! Also, as an added bonus...you don't have to carry all of those groceries up any flights of stairs. Instacart will bring them directly to your door and some will even help you put them away!

Do you ever feel like you are neglecting your cute little pooch? Unfortunately, since having kids my pups have not been able to receive as much attention as they use to when they ruled our house. Rover is an amazing website that will help you find a great dog walker or someone to watch your furry friends when you are not home. They can even take them to your apartment community's dog park to make to make sure they get their daily exercise! They will love and care for your pet just like you do.

There is a monthly subscription for all of that! Graze, Stitch Fix, Rescue Box, Ipsy, Rocks Box are only a few examples to help your crazy-busy life be easier.
