  • I wouldn't be able to afford to pay for such things, but I think this is a great idea. I thought of starting a similar business before and essentially calling myself a personal assistant. I was going to break things down into units called TSU's (short for Time Saving Units- the units are approximately equal to an hour, but also take into account the difficulty of the job). Each TSU would cost $10 and each job would be assigned a TSU. For instance: Laundry would be 1 TSU, Dusting would be 1 TSU, Grocery shopping would be 1.5 TSU's, Pick up of children would be .5 TSU. You can also let people purchase their TSUs in advance, and then decide how they'd like to use them.
    Just an idea.

  • I would SO pay someone to do errands. I HATE errands, but I love laundry so what I usually do is trade out with someone. I used to do my friends laundry if they would grocery shop for me. Now I have my hubby, lol.

  • I have always wished there was someone to call when I needed something like a gallon of milk, or to pick up dinner. We dont have a lot of places that deliver food here, so my only choice is pizza. I hated getting myself and 2 tdodlers ready to go out just for small things, like the milk or a loaf of bread.
