One of the difficult things about a 9-5, Monday-Friday schedule is that you have no time to do the other stuff that needs to get done. And many of these errands have to be done during the time you normally work.
Here are just some of the things you might have to get done:
- household repairs
- dentist and doctor visits
- making bank deposits
- car maintenance and repair
- haircuts and other self-maintenance
- buying groceries
- personal interests
- taking care of financial issues
- extended family obligations
- household maintenance
Then, if you have kids, the list gets even longer.
- more doctor and dentist visits
- homework help
- registering them for activities
- attending their activities
- doing their haircuts, baths, etc.
- cleaning up after them
- school events
- shopping for kids
- even more housework
- more financial obligations
Some people try to get these things done on their days off. This can work well for some, especially if they have a weekday off, but leaves very little free time for just taking a break. Some might try to sneak in some phone calls or personal business at work. Some people might take time off work occasionally so they can squeeze the errands in. Others might hire an assistant or a mother's helper.
How do you get your errands done when you're working?
