I have a confession and you have to promise you wont judge me. Okay? Here goes…I’m kinda lazy. And boy oh boy, do I pay for that laziness. Don’t get me wrong. There are some things that I simply can’t do for myself, like fix my broken laptop, because I lack the technical knowledge to do so, but that doesn’t mean I won’t pay for someone else to do my dirty work from time to time. Here are a few examples…
It can definitely be a budget killer, but the convenience of having someone else prepare your meal, serve you, and then clean up your mess is just incredible. It probably doesn’t help that I’m not the greatest cook. If Ninja is in the kitchen you can almost guarantee you’ll be getting chicken and rice or a PB&J. Not the most diverse menu in my house. This is why I find myself eating out at least once or twice a week. Maybe once I get hitched. I’ll cut back on the eating out gig?
So I’m pretty sure changing your cars oil is relatively easy. At least that’s what I’ve heard anyways. I wouldn’t know though since I have always taken mine to the dealership. An oil change at Toyota sets me back $24.99, but they also do a multi-point inspection, put air in my tires, and wash/vacuum my car for me. I could probably spend half that if I did it myself, but that would involve me getting dirty, and I’ll just be honest… I’m a little prissy high maintenance.
Like most people, I use a third party to file my taxes every year. Sure it may cost me a couple bucks each time, but not having to try and decipher those IRS forms makes it worth every penny. Plus, most third parties will fight off the IRS if they try and come back for more money.
Yup. I’m totally the guy that spends like $3 on a stupid “Congratulations” or “Happy Birthday” card at Target. I have zero craft abilities and am pretty sure I couldn’t make a half decent “Thank you” card if my life depended on it. I need to figure something else out quick though, because these greeting cards are burning a hole through my wallet. E-cards perhaps?
Tomorrow I will counter this post with some areas of my life that I D.I.M.(Do It Myself), but for now I’m focusing on my laziness. Won’t you join me? Where do you pay for convenience? Do you have a house cleaner? Do you go to Starbucks every day? Ladies do you get your nail done frequently?
