Hire the professionals, so you don’t have to be.

Moving. The word itself is daunting when it becomes reality. There is this funny meme going around social media right now comparing scrolling through Zillow to Instagram. What’s more funny is I thought I was the only one! I scroll through Zillow like it’s my job, most of the time putting in unrealistic expectations and only dreaming of the “what ifs” or getting decor ideas from the houses I see listed and staged.

The more I look, the more I think, maybe we should sell. It’s a sellers market right now that’s for sure which is great for people like me who own a home and have accrued enough equity to make selling worthwhile, but the downside is, yes… it’s a sellers market right now. As a buyer, it is like finding a hidden gem and that’s what myself and many others I know right now are determined to do.

During the process of looking for a new home, I’d be lying if I didn’t mention how scared I am to actually move everything again from one place to another. It doesn’t matter if we move a few blocks away like we did with our last move, or a few states away. It’s overwhelming to say the least, especially when you’re inevitably crunched for time and have deadlines staring you in the face.

That’s why I told myself next time, we are hiring professionals to do the literal heavy lifting for us. Especially when you have children, or mini hurricanes as I sometimes like to call them, letting a professional company take the reigns is so worth the cost. That’s where All in One Moving & Storage Inc. comes into play. If you live in and are moving within New Jersey, you’ve hit the jackpot if you’re reading this post.

office

Whether you’re moving residential, or you have a commercial moving job, they are the top commercial movers NJ has to offer. Ask any experienced business owner and they will all tell you the same thing: “The relocation of a business is one difficult task“.

When you hire the right company, all of that no longer matters. As long as you know when and where, they do the rest. Knowing the locations within New Jersey as well as the right people to get the job done makes them a top choice. Not only are they experts in moving, they have a blog that guides you through much more, like organizing your storage unit properly, how to de-stress after a long moving process, and much more. So when I tell you they’re the experts, they really prove it.

Do you have more than you think just one moving company could handle? Think again! They offer more services that you probably did not even think of until now.

  • Auto Transport; Skilled movers, quality moving trucks and equipment make the process of auto transport NJ a lot easier.
  • Eviction Movers; Unlike your typical household move, there is a bit more to the concept of eviction-caused moving. Eviction is the court-ordered expelling of a tenant from a property by a landlord. So, once the landlord decides that he wants his tenants to move out, he or she can send a notice in advance with a deadline.
  • Long Distance Move; They’ll set you up with a personal relocation consultant to determine your specific needs and ensure stream-lined service throughout your move.
  • Packing Supplies; When it comes to the concern of additional expenses, there is nothing for you to worry about. If you decide on full-service moving, All in One Moving will already have packing supplies included in the package.

Packing costs usually depend on the charge rate you negotiate.

  1. Hourly rate packing fees – this is something you will most commonly encounter with local movers NJ. The thing to remember here is that the more packers you need, the more it’ll cost you. However, certain NJ companies have the policy to lower the hourly rate as the number of packers grows.
  2. Flat-rate packing fee – most often applied with long distance movers NJ. All in One Moving can pre-determine the price of our packing services NJ. The criteria we use are based on the weight and volume of the belongings. In these situations, you would normally have a professional packing calculation, based on the number of rooms and packers needed.

 

Remember I said you hit the jackpot if you’re reading this? Not only did you just gain a ton of knowledge on how you’re going to plan your residential or commercial move in NJ, here are some coupons to use if you plan on using their plethora of moving services. Get your free coupons today! 

Staycation at Sahara Sam’s Oasis

20200725_153302

It’s a crazy time we’re living in and 2020 has been eventful to say the least. Many had vacations canceled due to travel bans and shutdowns, including myself.

If you’re looking for a staycation to make Summer feel like you’re at a resort, check out Sahara Sam’s Oasis in West Berlim NJ right off of exit 4 on the NJ Turnpike!

The inside waterpark and arcade area is currently shutdown due to social distancing policies however the outdoor area is full fledged fun. They have 50% capacity rules in place so make sure to purchase tickets ahead of time online as they’re not selling any on site to limit patrons.

I still found it to be a bit more crowded for my liking however we had a great time and just kept our distance from others.

The outdoor lagoon pool was our favorite. A perfect temperature heated large pool with majority of the pool 3ft deep with a roped off 5ft area.

Life vests are available as needed and there is enough room to social distance as long as every plays by the rules.

20200725_153419

We were supposed to be going to the Hard Rock next month so my kids lounged back and said look mom “this is the hard rock” as that held on to the hot rock lining the lagoon pool. It was so refreshing on this hot 90° Summer day.

The other areas of the outdoor section consists of a “toddler section” for kids 48″ and below. It is a nice shallow pool with buckets and sprinklers perfect for little ones, and a wave pool.

The wave pool is like any other, it goes for about 5 minutes,  then stops to settle,  and goes and stops.  It was really fun but a bit more crowded than I liked so we didn’t spend too much time in that area although the water was a perfect temperature and that made it hard to leave.

20200725_153308

All in all, it was a wonderful staycation and my boys both said “mom, we are definitely giving this a good review”.

Lockers are decently priced at $10 for a small, and you are allowed to bring in water,  and they have a small limited outdoor food area and ice cream station. Masks are not mandated in thre water areas (of course) but they are in the  bathrooms and food lines.

I hear it’s less crowded earlier in the day before 2pm and I’m sure the crowd lessons just befotte closing at 7pm so I suggest to go early or late if you’re trying to avoid crowds.

Every Friday, starting July 17th, is a Family Fun Friday! They’ll have a DJ spinning tunes in the Outdoor Water Park from 12 – 4 PM PLUS enjoy a personal pizza and small drink for just $6.99. *Outdoor Water Park ONLY is open (indoor water attractions closed). Reservations are required.

Let us know if you visit!

*I was provided tickets to review our visit but opinions are my own.

Home Chef and Other Meal Delivery Services

I have been a big fan of meal delivery services since they started a couple of years ago. My main go to is Hello Fresh because I love their variety of meals and flexible weekly options. I have done a few posts reviewing the service, and even included some of the meals that you can make yourself within those posts.

I can tell you one thing though, during this quarantine and pandemic going on, these meal delivery services have saved my butt. Literally. Think about it, instead of gearing up mask and gloves to go to the supermarket surrounded by others who potentially can expose you to the virus, only to go up to the produce and meat sections to realize they’re out of almost everything OR prices have gone us drastically due to demand and you are only able to get 1 or 2 packages of fresh meat. It’s a nightmare.

With these meal delivery kits, they come like clockwork. Their sites say there may be delays, but mine have all been coming on time, and very fresh when they arrive. I have been able to have these 3 dinners worth of amazing restaurant quality meals delivered to me without fail during this quarantine and loving every week of it. I’m not gonna lie.. I even had both Hello Fresh AND Home Chef delivered one week because I forgot to shut one off for the week since I bounce back and forth, and it was 6 dinners worth! Think it’s expensive? Think again… no contract cancel any time, and your first box is only $35 if you sign up through an existing member – otherwise it’s $59.95. That’s still less than $10 a person for dinner per day.

Try it for yourself, save $35 on your first box by signing up 🡪HERE🡨

My new kick I’m on is Home Chef, I started it just a few weeks ago. It is the same basic idea as Hello Fresh, a collection of meals that you choose from a list, or if you forget to chose then the meals are chosen for you.  The difference I have noticed between Home Chef vs Hello Fresh is that Home Chef does some of the work for you & the ingredients are more on a professional culinary level even though the meals are simple. They’re both $59.95 for a 3 meal 2 person plan, and I am usually able to get 2 1/2 meals out of it for me, my husband and my oldest son (my youngest is too picky to eat anything good…).

With that being said, they do an AMAZING job with outlining the recipe and even a novice cook can feel like a chef.. I guess that’s where the got the name from!

Here is an example of a complex risotto recipe I was able to easily make in a matter of 30 minutes;

https___asset.homechef.com_uploads_meal_plated_8813_5857ThaiShrimpandoconutRisottoReshoot_Ecomm__1_of_1_-9cd7e0bf9a8f7f388eefdb2c7c583c90-9cd7e0bf9a8f7f388eefdb2c7c583c90

This is their Shrimp & Bok Choy with Coconut Risotto and it was A-Mazing!

95591168_10222581656110649_2991460174956331008_n

Simple step by step recipe with the freshest ingredients ready to go. See if you can follow along with the recipe card and keep in mind all ingredients are provided in separate little meal bags for you although you do need to sharpen up your knife skills and chop;

https___asset.homechef.com_uploads_recipe_image_35083_5857ThaiShrimpCoconutRisottoStepsFinal-2__1_-1352b599de23efae7b23a2276df69ba0-1352b599de23efae7b23a2276df69ba0

Prepare the Ingredients

Remove any discolored outer leaves from bok choy and trim ends. Cut stems into ¼” slices and coarsely chop leaves. Keep stems and leaves separate. Trim and thinly slice white portions of green onions. Thinly slice remaining green onions on an angle. Keep white and green portions separate. Pat shrimp dry.

Start the Risotto

Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add rice and white portions of green onions to hot pot. Stir occasionally until rice is toasted and opaque, 1-2 minutes. Add 1 cup boiling water from small pot and mirepoix base to pot with rice. Rice should just be covered by water. Stir often until nearly all water is absorbed.

https___asset.homechef.com_uploads_recipe_image_35085_5857ThaiShrimpCoconutRisottoStepsFinal-4-7657a4a4847134af1b57036ab5fcf160-7657a4a4847134af1b57036ab5fcf160

Finish the Risotto

Add ½ cup boiling water from small pot and stir often until nearly all water is absorbed. Repeat this process, stirring often, 18-20 minutes. Taste risotto as you cook, checking for tenderness. When rice has no more “bite” or crunch, it’s done. There may be water left. Stir in coconut milk until combined and bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir constantly until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in green portions of green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish) and ¼ tsp. salt. Cover and set aside.

https___asset.homechef.com_uploads_recipe_image_35086_5857ThaiShrimpCoconutRisottoStepsFinal-5-9b200ea3dcee56b7820024b5720b54a5-9b200ea3dcee56b7820024b5720b54a5

Cook the Shrimp

Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

https___asset.homechef.com_uploads_recipe_image_35087_5857ThaiShrimpCoconutRisottoStepsFinal-6-5b86c5489bb0f7a5575124633b0547ec-5b86c5489bb0f7a5575124633b0547ec

Cook Vegetables and Finish Dish

Add 1 tsp. olive oil and bok choy stems to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Add bok choy leaves and stir constantly until leaves are wilted, 1-2 minutes. Stir in shrimpgarlic and ginger sauce, and ¼ tsp. salt until heated through, 30-60 seconds. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping risotto with shrimp-vegetable mixture and garnishing with toasted coconut and reserved green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!

Keep in mind all images above are copywrite of Home Chef and shown from my online cookbook. Yes, they even give you a cookbook in your online account that stores all of the past recipes you’ve made on their plan so you can remake them yourself by buying the ingredients.

I took it a step further and have ordered a large 3 ring recipe binder and a 3 hole punch and will be adding all of the Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, and Home Chef meal cards to so that I can have them all on hand to make them whenever I feel the need to.

If you want try it please use my invite link to appreciate my work that went into posting this for you!🤗

There are other meal plans as well like FRESHLY if you are not a fan of cooking. They’re pre-made meals and perfect for take and go lunch’s for work or quick dinners. They are microwavable and freezer ready. They’re very tasty but a little expensive in my opinion for the portions although the more you buy the cheaper they get and they do have $20 off of your first order by signing up 🡪HERE🡨 .

Hope you try one of these meal plans out, they are definitely coming in handy during this shut down in New Jersey! Comment your thoughts if you’ve tried any of the meal plans I mentioned or any others that I haven’t.

MamarazziOnline with The Moms and Laura Prepon during Quarantine; You and I as Mothers

Join the conversation by liking and commenting on Just For Moms above!

Such an awesome #MamarazziOnline with The Moms and Laura Prepon

You and I as Mothers; sounds like something I’d want to read! Jersey Native Laura Prepon has published her new book and it’s on shelves now. Being a mom of a newborn is so difficult. But being a mom of a newborn, and a 2 1/2 year old, living in NYC must be the most difficult of all.

Laura is handling it with style and grace. She admittedly threw on the sweater she was wearing just for us, and that she is usually sporting a baby scarf shall these days since she spends most of her time breastfeeding her newborn son who’s name she would not spit out no matter how hard we tried!

We talked about her new baby boy and how much she was already prepared for isolation without even knowing it, about her daughter Ella “marking her territory” when new baby brother came home, and about the importance of routine in her home right now.

Limiting screen time is so hard these days when we are “sheltering in place”, but there are some great options like the Non-profit Child Mind Institute to get you and your children through these tough time. They have online times from 10am-4pm weekdays and cover topics for young children, teens, coping skills, special needs and more during this unreal time.

Here are some awesome screenshots from our zoom “Mom Time” as I like to call it. It actually gives me a reason to do my hair and makeup, and I couldn’t be more grateful for this to occupy my mind during this difficult time 

pic1

Melissa was trying out Laura’s side pony and I think she has a new favorite hairdo!

pic3

pic2

I can’t even lie, any time I see a zoom chat of squares, I immediately think of the Brady Bunch intro. Maybe that’s a good idea for next time!

If you know an essential worker you’d like to recognize during this difficult time – send The Moms Denise or Melissa a message or tag #Mamarazzionline nominating them. Who know’s, maybe they’ll wind up getting to speak to someone awesome like Laura!
