When I went to see my friends on Friday night, they were talking about how they’ve got lots of things that never get done and so they’re thinking about using a concierge service. Basically they would pay a company a fee and they would arrange their lives from them. Be it booking a holiday, arranging for goods to be delivered or getting the boiler serviced. Pretty much anything. I think this comes with somewhat of a price tag. But having said that there is a certain appeal to having someone do all those jobs that I never get round to – not that I can afford to pay someone to sort my life out for me. There is also a part of me that thinks it would be a very cool job to have. Although it can be a hassle, I do like finding things out, working out to get a good deal on something, helping other people out with finding products or services. Maybe I should have this as my second career. Not that I feel I have had a ‘career’, as such, to date.
However, for something that doesn’t involve inviting strangers into your home, you could make your life a bit simpler by using a vacuum robot. You can programme this one and it will start vacuuming in the middle of the night if you want. It is about £800 though… Or you can get a rather cheaper one here, for a mere £230. Or if you want one that you don’t have to give up eating for a month to be able to afford then you can get this one for about £20 and it can mop your floor as well, although I think the fact it is cheap probably also means it isn’t as effective as the others. You really can buy anything these days though.
