These days, many cab booking apps are available. You just need to book your car using your smartphone.

A car of your choice will reach your doorstep to pick you up.

3 Hiring a personal gym trainer

We all know that gym membership is costly. If you take full advantage of it, you have to visit the gym for the workout.

But, some people prefer to hire a personal gym or yoga trainer to save their time.

4 Buying breakfast and lunch from outside

Most of the people are now a late riser; they get out of bed late and run to the washroom for a bath and get dressed up for their work.

I will finish the article with one more example(no.5) - buying bottled water is a costly habit that saves time but burns your pocket. How?
