This is a great article  

Turns out buying time saving services (cleaners, nannies, gardeners) makes us happier than buying stuff.  

There is a catch.  

Even though people feel better when they spend money to free up time, they often don’t choose to do it. 

Turns out people feel guilty at paying someone to do their tasks. You should have a different mindset. You are providing them with an opportunity to earn some money. 

 The article for me however misses the big picture.  

It makes the point we have less time these days but does not ask why? 

Surely it is because tax is now so staggeringly high compared to 50 years ago.
