It’s worth it.
How can we buy back more time? These days, many resources can be purchased to buy us more time, meal delivery, house cleaning, personal assistant, and nanny. The decision comes down to what you can afford.
Everyone is talking about cutting back these days, but that’s a contradiction to the other thing they’re saying which is to earn more money.
I lean towards increasing one’s income if times are tough. I feel that is an optimistic outlook and cutting back stems from a place of lack. Many have been conditioned to assume they can’t earn more, so they always look to make cuts in their life. To feel rich, we need to make rich decisions.
The best way to get more time to build wealth is by outsourcing and delegating.
Most time savings services will cost you hundreds of dollars a month.
Except for grocery delivery.
This service will cost you $99 for the yearly subscription and about $40 a month in service fees and tips depending on how often you order. According to https://www.fivestarhomefoods.com/blogs/grocery-shopping-facts/#:~:text=How%20long%20does%20the%20average,hours%20grocery%20shopping%20per%20year the average person spends 60 hours a year at the grocery store including driving there and back. That is 5 hours per month. Is it worth it to pay $99 to have someone do your grocery shopping for you? Heck yes!
How can one afford to pay for this service if you are just starting to create your rich life?
- Eat out less
- Use credit card points to pay for your subscription
- Gas money saved getting there and back
- Sell items that will add up to the subscription price
With 5 extra hours a month, you can work on your side hustle if you have a full-time job. You can spend more time with your family. You can create a household budget and review it weekly.
Five hours is a lot of time. Any other service that will free up this much time will cost you at least $100 a month!
Time to create wealth is your ticket to freedom. Delegating and outsourcing are necessary steps to do this in a healthy and productive manner.
How are you buying yourself time to reach freedom?
