This category is all of those pesky to do items such as returning items or gifts, going to the post office, or picking up dry cleaning.
Paying for errand running:
Initially, you and your assistant will have a discussion as to what works best for both of you. The option which is best for you and your assistant may change with your comfort levels. A receipt should always be provided by your Assistant for purchases.
· Option A – You provide the assistant with cash (using a good buffer). This option is good if you like using coupons and would like the assistant to use those as well.
· Option B – A bank account is opened with you and your assistants name on it which is used for groceries and errands.
Money saving tip:
Combine your errands to occur on one day. This saves on drive time and mileage for you and the Assistant.
