Hiring Out Errands

Streamline.com will buy your groceries and drop off drycleaning, for a fee

| March-April 2000

A Boston-based company called Streamline.com will now take care of nearly every mundane chore the busy Beantown household can imagine. As Alex Beam writes in The Atlantic Monthly (Dec. 1999), Streamline’s cheerful helpmates will buy your groceries, drop off your dry cleaning, rent your videos, process your photos, even pick up packages—all for just $30 a month. The approximately five hours a week you would save, Beam notes, could be devoted to spending more quality time with your family—or watching more sports on TV.
