NY Times: Want to Be Happy? Buy More Takeout and Hire a Maid, Study Suggests

This NY Times article has received a lot of attention in the news and on social media recently and posits that,“People who spent money to buy themselves time, such as by outsourcing disliked tasks, reported greater overall life satisfaction.” From all of my years as a personal assistant and professional organizer I can anecdotally confirm this has been true for most of my clients, whether it was using my services, utilizing grocery delivery, taking Uber, or, most especially, hiring a cleaning person. Many people who have worked with me likely remember my gentle chant that hiring a cleaning person (if your resources allow) makes your home more livable, gives you time back for your family, supports small business ownership and can be a saving grace to a relationship! ; )
