I have recently seen some Facebook 'conversations' about hiring people to do work for you rather than doing it yourself. I have an opinion on this so I thought I would share.
I have no shame in paying someone to do the work that I don't want to do or dont have the time to do. I feel it is what keeps the economy going.
My opinion is if you are compensating them for what they are doing its not like back in the slavery times where people hardly made enough money to survive. The things I pay to get don don't come at a small price. And I always tip almost 20% also!
I know some say this is a waste of money but I choose I save my money in other areas (couponing, making own dish detergent). I feel if I want to pay someone to mow my yard, who cares.
I was talking with a friend the other day about me being a stay at home Mom and he made the comment I would probably still take my kids to daycare. I laughed and thought, I probably would!
I guess each to their own. Great if you do things yourself and great if you pay someone to do it for you. I prefer te latter!
