HOW CAN A PERSONAL CHEF SAVE ME TIME AND MONEY?

How much do you spend on groceries and take-out food per week? 
The average family of four spends about $250 a week on groceries alone.

How much time do you spend picking up take-out, planning meals, 
grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning up? 
For most people it takes up 1-2 hours of their day, more in other cases.
That's 7-14 hours a week just spent on shopping and preparing food.  

How much is your time worth? $20, $50 per hour? Priceless even? 
Let's face it, time is money.

Say having that extra 2 hours per day is worth $20 an hour to you. 
That's $40 a day, or $280 a week.

When added up, that's about $530 worth of spent time and money each week.
The majority of Chef Natalie services are less expensive than that, 
plus you get all of that time back in your day.
