Taskrabbit

Taskrabbit connects you with friendly, reliable people right in your neighborhood to help you get items on your to-do list done. You can post for tasks like: shopping, furniture assembly and online research. What this service does is eliminate the creepy CraigsList guy and gives you access to a network of prescreened, background checked people to complete your task. Taskrabbit. Luckily they have already launched in Austin for live and virtual tasks and you can see their full directory here. Not in your city? You can still use the virtual service. Use this referral link if you’re interested in signing up as a “task rabbit” or a “client” This application is available for iPhone only.

So, really?

So, really, I LOVE this service. I use it about 2-3 times per month for things that will save me big in time. I’ve used it for: errand to IKEA, digging up a garden and fixing Outlook on my Mac.
