During brunch with a friend last Sunday, she mentioned that she'd hired someone to help her deep clean her apartment. She'd been putting it off for months and through TaskRabbit.com was able to outsource her chores and have people bid on it! It might sound a little weird to have a stranger come into your home, but think of all the time and energy that could be better used elsewhere and perhaps having some company is enough to kick your heinie into gear. Plus, all the bidders go through an application process with video interviews, essays, and a background check. She's also had people pick up boxes of clothes to donate to a charity of their choice and spend hours scanning in all her magazine clippings.
What tasks would you outsource to the willing? Oh what I wouldn't give to have someone agree to go up and down my fourth floor walkup to get my laundry done and cheaply...
