December 14: The Price For Simplicity?

Every Wednesday, I’ll (try) to post up a Simple Living Tip, with an emphasis on tips that can be done while living a more traditional 9-to-5 life.

In this hectic world, I think even regular Joes/Janes like me sometimes feel the need to pay for services that make life simpler, whether it’s an organizer, maid or a personal assistant. 

While I have paid for cleaning help, I don’t think I would pay someone $125 an hour to organize and simplify my closet and home? Daily Candy readers get $100/hour through January 31, 2012. Is that a bargain? I think that I’m perfectly capable (I think) of editing out my closet and donating things to Goodwill.  Then I remember that I’ve been lugging around assorted junk like old movie posters for 10+ years!

I don’t envy movie stars for their fame or fortune (well, not that much..) I envy that they can hire people to make their lives run smoothly.  How much easier would life be if you had a personal assistant to drop off drycleaning, buy plane tickets, book salon appointments and take care of all the miscellaneous stuff on everyone’s todo list?!
