Happiest people use their money to buy time. Here are two more things I would buy to have more time (Part 1):

3. Cooking

Cooking is definitely a love and hate relationship. I wanna cook when I want but not every day.

Now $: Combination of cooking and eating outside but being more proactive of meal planning every week. 

Soon $$: Use meal prep services to have food delivered or picked up.

Later $$$: Have a dedicated chef to cook and deliver food.

4. Answering the Same Question / Telling the Same Story

I can't really buy this but hear me out. I find myself answering the same question or telling the same story to different people. This is due to having different groups of friends and part of it is work related. I wish people would ask more interesting questions by doing some work beforehand. 

An example at work setting when there is a scheduled meeting with a new person, don't just ask "what do you do on the team?" I wish more people asked specific questions to have a better conversation. I don't mind answering it but we just wasted 2-3 minutes of the scheduled time that could have been spent before because that info is available on the internet. 

Now I think about it, I think it would be fun to have an FAQ section on my personal website and make it easy for people to find it. I am going to brainstorm about the typical questions that I get and include a link in my email section. It would be cool to have a website like about.me but for FAQ (should I make it?).


We derailed from the original topic of the post a bit there but overall money might not always buy you happiness but it can buy you time that is precious and limited.

    How much $ would you need to be making to justify having a dedicated personal chef.

    Sam Ovens -- he teaches consultants -- says that anyone making 10 K a month should start getting such a service. I was wondering what you were imagining.

      @abrahamKim I would get one if I am saving $8 - $10K a month.

      When I say dedicated chef, it can be a combination where they have their own thing and they would prepare food and deliver it to me fresh.

      lol I should just live with my parents and have homemade dishes every day ?

      Haha yes parents can be dedicated chef! How far away from the parents do you live? I saw that you're based in Michigan. That's where I'm originally from. I went to MSU.
