Shopping for Time

“I wish there were more hours in the day.” I hear this all the time.

Time. We all want more of it. Time to be with our families, our kids, our friends. Time to work, time to sleep, time to exercise, time for a house project. Just more time.

As a lawyer, I used to bill my clients for my time. Not just by the hour, but for every 1/10 of an hour. Every six minutes had to be accounted for, every single day. As a stay-at-home mother and now, a working mother, I know how precious a commodity time is.

Over the last year, I looked at my weekly schedule and desperately tried to find more time. I started to outsource some of my weekly errands, responsibilities, and chores.

Then, I thought, I could help other busy people. People who need to get organized. People who’ve recently had a change in their personal, work, school, or household schedule. People who want to have more time for themselves, to practice a hobby, to travel, to play with their kids, or to help an older relative.

I created a website, Shopping for Time, a resource for busy people, dedicated to time in all its various forms: time management, time savers, efficiency, quality personal and family time, and time to find products and services that parents need.

I’m proud to partner with many Pittsburgh and national sponsors offering my readers discounts as they get more time. To date, my partners include: Giant Eagle Curbside Express, Model Dry Cleaners, HelloFresh, Massage Envy, Simply Cleaning and More, Smiley Pits, Girl Friday Cooking, Another Mother, and Fitted Tot.

The website’s in development and should be up and running by the end of the month, but please like the facebook page for now.

Thank you for your time,

Carissa Howard
