Time is a luxury that more often than not I do not have enough of. The days are simply not long enough to accommodate everything I would like to accomplish. So while I am usually very “financially responsible” (how do you say that without sounding like a mom?), there are certain things that are well worth every penny of what they cost.
Exhibit A: Mobile car washes. Back when I had more time I used to love washing my car every Saturday morning. There are very few things more satisfying that starting with a filthy dirty car and watching it turn back into the sparkling clean car you remember buying. However, now that there is rarely an opportunity to actually do said act myself I have resorted to getting my car washed. But the most convenient and perhaps enjoyable thing about it is that I can do it while sitting at my desk. So thank you guys who come faithfully every Friday to my office and wash AND vacuum my car while I work, you make my life a lot easier.
Exhibit B: Carpet cleaners. When moving out of an apartment it is generally recommended to (somewhat) clean in a (futile) attempt to reclaim ones security deposit. So while they have machines you can rent from the grocery store to wash your carpets yourself I would highly recommend spending the money to have a professional come and clean them. This will save not only your carpets but also frustration and more importantly a lot of time.
Exhibit C: Delivery food. Is it just me or does it always feel super awkward during the exchange of payment for food between you and the delivery guy? I don’t know why, there is just something strangely lazy about ordering food and then having it delivered….right to your door. Convenient, time-saving, and sometimes incredibly necessary, but still awkward. So thank you delivery man for bringing me food despite all of its uncomfortableness.
Happy Friday! Enjoy every minute or your weekend.
