Do it Yourself or Pay Someone Else?
You need to decide how much time and energy you are willing to spend on doing the routine maintenance that comes with having things. If you really can't stand to do the task or you don’t think it’s a good use of your time, you probably can justify spending the money to have someone else do it.
If you are not sure whether it makes sense to hire someone to do a chore for you, compare the cost to your regular hourly rate at work. If it costs significantly less than what you earn, your time could be spent better on more profitable tasks.
If you prefer to do routine chores yourself but you put them off, decide when you will get them done and put them in your calendar. If you don’t schedule them, they won’t happen.
