Spending money on time-saving services actually increases your happiness. Research providing evidence for this statement was recently published in the "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences." People are generally feeling a time crunch in their lives. Maybe you can relate?  According to the research, people who used their money to save themselves time, like employing a window washer, house cleaner, take-out delivery service, or landscaper (to name a few), reported higher levels of happiness than people who used their money to buy goods. Additionally, one could presume that spending money on outsourcing undesirable tasks to a service provider would be even more rewarding. 

I recently experienced this for myself when I paid to have my dog bathed by a groomer. I really don't like washing my dog mainly because he's older and hates it. I feel guilty and resentful all at the same time. When I pulled a muscle in my back, I had reached my breaking point for completing this task. I called an area groomer and took him in to get bathed. Originally, I had balked at the $35 in bathing cost. But when he was returned to me, he was so clean. He was much cleaner than I could've gotten myself. His ears have been cleaned. They had done some type of de-shedding to remove loose hairs. And the only thing I had to deal with was a spunky, clean dog that was excited to be done with his bath. I didn't have to endure the looks of betrayal.
