Be it birthday's, weddings, anniversaries, New Years Eve, Christmas, Halloween or even a family holiday; there is the strain of planning and carrying everything out that runs through every family event. It's not just the amount of things you have to prepare, or book, or hire, it's also the financial aspect that you have to keep an eye on (especially during this seemingly never-ending Cost of Living Crisis).
A family event may quickly turn into a hassle to handle between hosting, attending, planning, keeping your full-time job, and stressing about spending too much. And, somehow, no matter how much we try to plan ahead or save some cash, something always seems to come up that makes us overspend on the last minute.
If you’re really looking to simplify your life during often stressful family event planning – and actually enjoy yourself –, delegating some of the heavy lifting of preparing for your event is the way to go. And with HiKinjo, outsourcing has never been easier and cheaper!
Here are just a few ways you can use the Hikino app to delegate and save yourself from a heap of stress!
Food and Catering:
If you enjoy cooking and baking, you may be itching to just do everything yourself for your event. However, when you factor in the price of, say, birthday party food, as well as the cost of your time and labour; delegating those time-consuming desserts or specific side dishes you don't feel confident doing could save you a lot of money and time. That way, you can just concentrate all of your efforts on making the best main course, or that show-stopping cake! (If you're a talented enough baker!)
And why not sell some of your home-cooked delicacies? You can offer your cooking skills on HiKinjo and use your earnings to buy the rest of the meal or any other special treat.
Don’t be left running and scrounging around the high street the day before the event! If you’re too busy to do all the shopping yourself, just post a request on HiKinjo so your neighbours can offer to do it all for you! All you need to do is prep a shopping list, be it fizzy drinks, ice-cream, tablecloths, wine glasses or heck, even your new party outfit!
Get The Tableware Ready
Don't spend hours finding that old set off Champagne glasses you bought one Christmas in 2005; post a request on HiKinjo to borrow some from your neighbours. You'll get to save yourself the hassle of searching the loft, and you'll get to save money instead of buying new.
Get Your Home Ready
Who has time to scrub toilets and get everything shiny all by themselves? Whether you're preparing for a wedding anniversary party, or a lengthy visit from your in-laws; outsource your housecleaning to help get your home spotless. Simply post a request via HiKinjo, or browse your neighbours’ offerings to find the perfect cleaner. You can even schedule the after-party cleaning, so you don’t have to worry about waking to a messy kitchen.
Get a jump on things and delegate some tasks so you can truly enjoy your family event. Plus, be rewarded for every transaction you make in the form of Kinjo kudos points, so you can spend it on requesting anything you need without overspending! That way, you can focus your day on emjoying quality time with your loved ones, rejuvenating your energy, and giving thanks for your many blessings.
