Who wants a giant package full of healthy and delicious food delivered right to your front door?
Who doesn’t want to think about what to make for dinner?
Who is ready to have someone do all the hard work for you
Wrap all those things up into one cute white and green box and you have successfully described my experience with my first try of HelloFresh!
I’m kinda a meal planning nerd so this was right up my alley! See all my monthly meal plans here.
It couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. A “simple” office makeover has transformed into an endless list of DIY projects. (I’ll totally be sharing all the tutorials in the coming weeks! Get sneak peeks on my IG stories!!)
Not that I’m complaining because I am actually having a blast doing it all. But let’s face it. If it weren’t for my heaven sent box full of three healthy meals, my family would have eaten frozen chicken nuggets every night this week!

3 Occasions I Will Order Hello Fresh Again to Save Money!
1.I most definitely will be ordering next time we come home from out of town. You can schedule when you want your box delivered! Imagine coming home from a trip to an empty fridge and a kitchen full of hangry kids…
Or imagine coming home after an exhausting day of travel to a package sitting on your porch full of healthy and fresh ingredients. In just a few minutes you could have a homemade meal ready for your family!
2.If you find yourself on my Christmas list, a starving college student, or maybe your one of my dear friends and just welcomed a sweet baby into your life. You might find your own package full of stress relief waiting on your porch. Hello Fresh automatically puts you to the top of anyone’s “favorite list” when you send it as a gift.
3.Keep things toasty on your next date with a romantic night-in with hubby! Because Hello Fresh keeps things simple yet elegant, it’s the perfect set-up for date night! With easy to follow recipes, it leaves plenty of room in the kitchen for conversation and the flirtful reach for the zester!
What’s the Cost?
It’s a splurge. I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one. Prices start around $4.99 per serving if you use my coupon code below. As a frugal girl who on average spends about $5 per meal to feed the entire family, I went into this experiment very hesitant.
And… quickly fell in love and started to consult my budget and calendar to see when I could place my next order!
If you follow me on Instagram you are probably all too familiar with my stance on price versus value. You need to be putting value on your time and experiences. Yes, it works out to cost more then I normally would spend on a meal at home.
Keeping in mind my suggestions of when to order your meal box, compare the price of going through the drive through for a family of four (easily $30-$40) to the cost of one meal with HelloFresh ($25-$30 with my coupon code). But with HelloFresh you don’t have to feel guilty about what you are feeding your family!
The convenience, the fun, and the thoughtfulness that goes into this occasional splurge is worth it in my book. Just remember to budget it in before you spend!
