Almost Back to School for Busy, Working NH Families—the solutions for doing it all!

Back to School means new routines, sports, after-school clubs, classes, all coinciding with busy post-vacation work schedules for working parents.

 

As you are planning for Back to School, consider that data show working parents are the norm. 75% of New Hampshire families with children under six have all available parents in the workforce.  56% percent of all working parents say the balancing act is difficult, and those who work are more likely to say that parenting is tiring and stressful, and less likely to find it always enjoyable and rewarding.

 

Studies show that money can buy happiness if you spend money to save time.  For busy families with all available adults in the workforce, outsourcing the work of laundry and meal planning and prep, could make them happier and less stressed.

 

As more households no longer have someone at home to do household or personal chores, two New Hampshire start-ups, founded by three working moms, are ready to help!

 

Wash Street, an on-demand laundry service, and Local Baskit, a locally-sourced meal kit company, are ready to servebusy NH families with deliveries to Manchester, Bedford, Concord and Portsmouth.
