Although there are lots of ways to find time for yourself and your family, often times people don’t know where to start to get a few extra minutes a day. One option is to pay a small fee for some services that you are currently doing yourself. I know it may sound silly to do this, but the extra time you save may be more beneficial to you. Here are services you can hire out, and they don’t have to cost you a lot of money.
Housekeeping- You don’t have to have them come every week. Hire a service to come once a month to deep clean, and you can do touch ups throughout the rest of the month.
Grocery delivery service- For a small fee, lots of stores will deliver groceries. Save yourself time from going shopping and save yourself money by avoiding all of those impulse purchases. Make your list ahead of time, and they will stick to it!
Use e-cards- Hallmark offers a great service that allows you to select, customize, and send out cards for all sorts of occasions. You can even schedule them to go out for a future date. A small subscription fee gives you access to all of their e-cards. You can save time by sitting down at the beginning of the year with your perpetual calendar and schedule the year’s worth of cards!
Buy presents online- Have them wrapped and shipped directly to the recipient. This avoids you having an item shipped to you, the having to wrap it, and then re-mail it. Use gift wishlists to make sure you’re getting just what the gift recipient wants.
A few carefully spent dollars can really make life easier, because remember, your time is money.
