Something really exciting happened recently and it’s really changed my life (for the better).
For years and years, I’ve struggled with owning ‘too many clothes’ but having ‘nothing to wear’. Does this sound familiar to anybody? HANDS UP?? Okay, wait, nevermind. I can’t actually see you.
Well, I decided I really needed to get that sorted, and thankfully BPAY View stepped in to help! It’s rare you get offered a personal assistant for a day, so I took this opportunity to ask him to fold, organise and colour-code my wardrobe.
If you were given a PA for a day – what would YOU ask him to do!?
Read to the end of the post if you want to win a personal assistant for a day!
Meet Tim – my bow-tied, good looking personal assistant!
Obviously with my pout – you can tell that I was really happy Tim had come to help me organise my wardrobe. Hahaha.
We opened up my wardrobe, and he was super polite when he saw the amount of clothes I had….. ha, I didn’t expect such a friendly reaction. I had about 400-500 pieces of clothing to sort out by colour and type!
He took out all my clothes, ‘relocated’ them onto my bed, sorted them by categories and found space in my wardrobe to fit everything in!
I watched him with pure amazement.
Tim not only helped me organise my clothes, he also forced me to tell him when the last time I wore each item was! This resulted in me donating 1/3 of my clothes to charity!
By the end of it, it went from that pile of mess…. to this!
Sometimes, we need someone to help us out with the things we keep putting off.
What else can you think of to ask your PA to do? For me, since this job is done, the next best thing would be to sort out my bills.
In Australia, the cost of living is quite high – but many of us still end up paying ‘late fees’. Even though we use direct debit for a lot of the bills we pay, we can still forget to keep sufficient cash funds in that savings account too!
I come from a financial planning background so I know managing your finances can be difficult! (As well as organising your wardrobe).
Now, I can probably help with both of these personal problems.
If you haven’t heard of BPAY View before (I’m sure you’ve heard of BPAY), it is a service which actually helps you to organise your bills! BPAY View actually lives in your internet banking site. To register your bills, enter the BPAY View registration number found under the BPAY logo on your paper bill and boom!
BPAY View will send you reminders to pay for your bills via SMS, email or bank message (depending on your bank)… so you won’t need to go home and remind yourself to pay for your bills again (if you can remember where you left it last!)
For me, it’s great because it means I will actually save money from not having to pay late fees, and save time by not having to rush home to pay off my bill (that was probably due yesterday).
And ofcourse, if you own a business, and can’t afford a PA just yet, it’s a great alternative too!
I think the best part about using this service is that not only is it convenient, as you can now pay anywhere, it is also environmentally friendly and creates less mess to clean up later. Let’s go paperless!
Go check it out in your internet banking now!!
Of course…. I won’t leave you hanging with jealousy that I had Tim organise my wardrobe….and not yours! Sharing is caring!
