As soon as I read "happiest people use their money to buy time" in HBR article, Time for Happiness I started questioning about all the things that I don't like to do.

If I can buy more time, I would spend it with my friends, family and on side projects.

Even if I can't afford it now, here are somethings I would use money to buy time: 

1. Commute Time

I spend an hour a day to go back and forth from home to work when I take public transportation. Here is what I am doing now and what I will do in future.

Now $: To make my commute time productive, I listen to podcast while walking and switch to reading newsletters when I am on the train. 

Soon $$: I will take Uber/Lyft without feeling guilty.

Later $$$: I would get an apartment with in 5 - 10 min walking distance to work.

2. Picking Restaurants with Friends

I have too many picky friends and when ever we out we want to try new restaurants. We spend a ton of time trying to decided what restaurant we want to go to.

Now $: We try to limit it to cuisines and cost of the restaurant. 

Soon $$: Get rid of cost of the restaurant filter.

Later $$$: Pay someone to pick a restaurant with our preferences.
