Who doesn’t like money, right? Money is great, and as the old saying goes, a penny saved is a penny earned… or so we thought until the U.S. Bureau of labor statistics took a look at exactly how much time goes into saving pennies.
Men spend an average of 1.7 hours on household activities each day, presumably because they don’t think they can afford to pay someone else to do them. Women spend a whopping 2.7 hours per day on chores and errands. This is almost 20 hours per week! That is like taking on a part-time job – except you aren’t really making money – you’re saving it, which we all know is NOT the same thing.
I promise you that you do not need to be spending this much time on cleaning and errands. If you really want to save some money, these are the prices we offer on some common services.
- Weekly surface cleaning (average-sized house) – $50/week.
- Typical errand run (less than half an hour away) – $20.
- Dog walk – $20.
Don’t believe it’s worth it?
