Recently, I had a great experience with an online task-matching service where you describe a task that you want done for a price you want to pay.
Once you’ve describe your task & your budget, you then wait for the quotes to come in.
The task I wanted done was for someone to clean my wheelchair & my budget was $25.
Within half an hour, I had 3 people interested in this task.
The first person’s quote met my budget, the other two were slightly higher however they could do it immediately.
I chose to pay an extra $5 as I did want the job done urgently.
