When I was partly laid off, I remember my "free" days were utterly consumed by running errands. It was infuriating to think I had 40% more free time, and I just frittered it buying stamps and going to the hardware store.
I have not run an errand in over two years. It was vital before. I had to go to the post office if I wanted to mail a box; I had to go to the DMV to renew my plates.
Who knew? Who knew there were all these other options? Put the box on the bathroom scale and buy the postage from usps.gov. Renew my license plates online. The only errand I find that I have to do in person is to get things notarized.
And has eschewing errands made my life move faster or slower? Less busy work, so that's good, but less time spent being busy, and that's bad.
