Sometimes there are tasks that we need to do, but don't necessarily have the time for. One way to get things done is to outsource. Here are a few options that will help you save time, without spending too much money.

For those of you who dread house cleaning duties, BidMyCleaning can help you find a reputable housekeeper at a rock-bottom price. Simply enter your location and needs, and the site will instantly load a list of local, low-cost cleaning services, complete with customer ratings and feedback. You can even choose to have your home tidied up with eco-friendly products at no extra cost.

If you tend to procrastinate when it comes to online errands -- like scheduling, making reservations and shopping -- try using FancyHands. This site connects you to a team of professional contractors who are ready to help around the clock.

Membership prices vary depending on how often you use the service. Five requests per month costs $25; 15 goes for $45; and you can get 25 requests for $65. If you decide to go long-term, their yearly plans are 25 percent cheaper than paying monthly.

Finally, if you're looking for a little creative assistance, Fiverr will help you find people to design logos, make videos, edit podcasts and more. Like the name implies, each task costs only five dollars, which makes Fiverr a great place to try outsourcing for the first time.

So, if you need to buy yourself some time, outsourcing can be the way to go. Sometimes saving a few hours a day can be worth the investment.
