Do-It-For-Me (DIFM) Takes Over Do-It-Yourself (DIY)
We all have heard the saying “time is worth money,” but when it comes down to it, it’s worth so much more. Yes, taking on certain projects yourself instead of letting the experts handle it can save you money, but the time invested may not be worth it. Work hours for adults in the US are on the rise, which means they have less and less time to spend with family or on recreational activities. Furthermore, the unemployment rate in the US has been steadily falling since about 2010. The increased employment couple with the uptick in work hours maybe a contributing factor to the rise of the so-called Do-It-For-Me trend.
It means people rather hire somebody for things they do not like to do. This trend might be reflected in the rise of ride-sharing services, or the increase in services delivering meal kits and recipes to the home, allowing consumers to cook dinner without the hassle of shopping, meal planning and food preparation. There are other reports that indicate that more and more Americans rather head to lube shops than change the motor oil in their cars themselves. When it comes down to it, these services basically let consumers buy time. As for home improvement projects, right now more and more people opt for letting the experts handle the job.

Painting your entire home can be a hassle. First, you need to prep all your walls and clean them thoroughly. Of course, you need to get all the right the supplies, paint, primer, brushes, rollers, tarps, tape and so on. You need to make sure your ladders are in good working order. Then, the work itself will be hard. If you have ever painted your own ceilings, you know how difficult that can be. Doing it yourself can also be dangerous. Every year people get hurt falling or slipping off ladders. And, once you think you are done and the paint is drying, you will notice spots you may have missed, which means you have to get all your supplies back out again and try to fix potential mistakes. Depending on how big your home is, this whole process will take a couple of days if not weeks.
