In today’s fast-paced world, there are so many demands on our time. From family and friends to jobs, cleaning, cooking and taking care of our health, our to-do lists are chock-full of responsibilities that can become quite overwhelming without a little bit of help. Luckily, we’re living in an age of convenience where we can buy back our time, or even have someone more capable of handling things for us.
It’s important to find ways to make our lives as easy and efficient as possible – it limits our stress, makes more room for creativity and allows us to put more time towards what we enjoy doing. We can take advantage of convenience-driven services that are designed to help us remove many things off our to-do lists, and have more efficiency in our schedules.
Here are a few examples of convenience-driven services that can help make your life easier:
Food delivery services
With the rise of apps like GrubHub, Uber Eats, and DoorDash, it’s easier than ever to have food delivered to your door. Whether you’re craving your favourite restaurant meal or want to try something new, these services make it easy to order and pay for your food without ever having to leave your home. When you finish a busy workday, very often the last place you want to be is standing over a stove. These services mean you get fed while you kick back and relax.
Not everyone is a fan of relying on food delivery services, especially when it seems like all the options are unhealthy fast-food restaurants. The alternative to these services is signing up for meal kit services, where you’ll have the ingredients for meals delivered to you already weighed out, portioned and ready for you to just start cooking. If you enjoy cooking but hate having to figure out what to make every day, this kind of service is right up your alley, and you can choose from a wide range of meal options – from healthy to special occasions.
Online Grocery Delivery
If buying groceries all the time is a hassle for you, why not let them get delivered to you whenever you need them? Many services allow you to order your groceries online and have them delivered right to your door. This eliminates the need to spend time at the store and makes it easy to get the groceries you need without leaving your house.
One of the worst feelings in the modern consumer’s experience is realizing that you forgot to top up a product you rely on when you last did your shopping. Luckily, that can be a thing of the past if you let technology take care of that for you. One of the best features of Amazon is that you can sign up for automatic refills on home and personal care products. You can set them up monthly or up every 3 months and that means whenever you’re about to run out, a refill shows up at your door without you having to worry about it placing an order. It takes a few extra seconds when you place the first order, and your future self will thank your past self for it.
Having a pet is one of the most joyful and rewarding experiences there is but being a pet owner comes with a lot of responsibilities. If you have a really busy schedule, it can be hard to stay on top of all your pets’ needs, which can impact your furry friend’s overall health in many ways. Some convenience services you can sign up for include grooming services that will pick up your pet, take care of keeping it clean and then bring it back to your home. You can also sign up for services that provide compounded pet medications so that you never have to worry about your pet getting the health support it needs – customized to its size and other characteristics.
On-demand Cleaning Services
Companies like Handy and TaskRabbit allow you to book a cleaning service online and have a professional cleaner come to your home to take care of the cleaning for you. This frees up your time and energy to focus on other things.
Personal Shopping Services
Looking stylish and putting together great outfits can be quite stressful when you’re busy and you have a lot going on in your life. Well, fortunately, there are companies that provide personal shopping services that will help you find clothes that fit your style and budget. These clothes will be sent right to your door, so you’ll never have to worry about the stress of malls again.
Virtual Personal Assistants
With the rise of virtual personal assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant, it’s easy to control your smart home devices, set reminders, and manage your schedule all with just your voice. From setting appointments and booking flights to finding deals online, you’ll get so much time back by trying out these services.
