You know what would be awesome? A personal assistant, a maid, a private yoga instructor and a chef who comes over to cook dinner every night.

In the past, these perks were pretty much limited to Beyoncé. But now that there’s an app to help us with almost everything, we can live like a celebrity without even winning a Grammy.

Presenting: every app you need to help you outsource your life in NYC, from A to Z.

You know what’s worse than hailing cabs? Waiting in line at the Costco in Long Island City. Have that 50-pack of paper-towel rolls delivered to your door instead.

Get the app.

 

“C” IS FOR CURBSIDE

Shopping inside Crate and Barrel or Target? Hilarious. We’d way rather just sit in the car (or cab that we hailed with Arro) and wait for our items to be placed directly in the trunk.

“D” IS FOR DUFL

Packing your own suitcase is for losers. Store your travel gear in Dufl’s virtual closet and have your bags magically appear, clean and neatly packed, at your destination.
