ChipperSitter: $3 Hours of Babysitting for $10!

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

Life can get busy so quickly and before you know it, it’s been several months since you last had a date!  And if you are like us, part of the hassle in planning a date night is finding a sitter for the children.  And not just finding a sitter, but finding a sitter that you can trust and this is affordable.

I recently learned about ChipperSitter and thought their services sounded like an amazing way to help parents get an affordable childcare for date night.  For just $10, ChipperSitter will provide you with a professional babysitter to watch your children for 3 hours!  (If you want any additional hours, you’ll pay just $15 per hour for each hour after that.)  Sounds pretty good, right?!

Oh, and if you appreciate a company that gives back, you’ll want to know that during the month of December, ChipperSitter is going to give 15% of their profits to help care for the homeless in New York City.  So you can have a date night and inadvertently help out those less fortunate!

So, what is ChipperSitter?

ChipperSitter is a company that provides babysitting services through their network of professional babysitters in major cities throughout the country.  ChipperSitter is meticulous in their hiring process so that you can relax knowing you children are in good hands.  Every sitter has to undergo a background check, reference checks, sex offender status checks and they even scan the web and news sources to make sure there is nothing bad that turns up there.  In addition, they also do a thorough round of interviews with child care experts to make sure the sitter is up to par and capable of doing an excellent job.

How does ChipperSitter work?  It’s this easy!

1.  You’ll need to contact ChipperSitter via their website or by calling (877) 620-8578.

2.  ChipperSitter will setup a time for an experienced expert from their team to call or video call to discuss your babysitting needs.

3.  You’ll then be emailed access to ChipperSitter’s software which will allow you to view sitters near you.  You will be able to watch their sitter video where they will introduce themselves to you and you can even chat with your prospective sitter too!  Facebook profiles are available for review as well.

4.  Once you’ve decided on a sitter, you can book your date night.

5.  Your all set to enjoy some time with the one you love!  (And if it gives you peace of mind while you are out, you can always text your sitter or view your little ones via an app on your smartphone too.)

What’s the biggest thing that keeps you from having date night?  Have you ever used a service like ChipperSitter?

Zaycon Food: $1.89 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

 

I received free chicken breast in exchange for a blog review.  However, all opinions are mine. 

You may remember my post about Zaycon Foods’ $1.89/lb. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast.  Well, I’m excited to tell you that I had the opportunity to try some of their chicken and yes, it’s as awesome as they claim!

Zaycon Foods is a privately owned company founded in 2009 with the simple mission to bring farm fresh meats direct to consumers at wholesale prices. Because they cut out the middle man (ie: grocery store) they can keep their cost lower than what you’ll typically find.  They have events all over the country where they deliver their products- you simply need to drive through and pick them up!

While Zaycon Foods sells everything from raw wildflower honey to non-homogenized whole milk to fresh strawberries, they are best known for their quality meats.  And more specifically for their fresh 100% natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients.  Their boneless, skinless chicken breast comes in 40 lb. boxes, but each box has four 10 lb. bags of chicken it, making it very easy to split your order with someone else if you are worried that you won’t be able to use the whole 40 lbs. yourself.

I was super impressed with my Zaycon Foods experience.  Ordering was so simple; I just went to their website, set up an account and found an event in my area.  Then I placed my order and paid online, so that the day of the event I could just sail through the pick up line!

I got to the location of the pickup for my event about 5 minutes after it started.  The delivery men were ready and waiting as I drove up and all that I needed to do was roll down my window, give them my name and open the rear hatch of my minivan.  After laying down a plastic trash bag to catch any leaks (there were none!), they loaded up my chicken and in a matter of a couple of minutes I was on my way again!  I was more than happy to not have to get out of my car and the whole process was much easier than going to the grocery store with 2 little children in tow!

Once I arrived back home, I got to work processing the chicken.  I froze some breasts whole, cooked some meat and froze it and then canned the rest.  There was a little bit of fat to trim off of some of the pieces but overall, I was impressed with the quality of the meat.  We’ve enjoyed it numerous times since and it has great flavor!

If you are interested in ordering from Zaycon, head to their website and set up an account.  They typically have chicken events happening several times throughout the year so by signing up now, you’ll be alerted when they start their next sales.
