Registry Regret: Things You’ll Wish You Asked For

A power drill says that a TaskRabbit charges between $17 and $80 an hour, depending on the type of labor required. When we moved into our first apartment together, we paid a TaskRabbit to install a hanging lantern, several heavy paintings, a very hefty accent mirror, and some floating shelves. Then it hit us: we hired a TaskRabbit not because we didn’t know how to do any of that stuff, but because we didn’t have a power drill and he did. That cost us $180 for that day. Imagine the cost over a lifetime if you hire someone else to hang things up for you every time you need it! It’s silly since a really good quality and comprehensive drill set costs under $200. Put it on your registry and you won’t regret it.
