9 Ways Working from Home Saves You Money

Telecommuting Has Hidden Savings That Add Up Quickly

2. Time

SAVINGS: Intangible

Those extra 260 hours annually the average telecommuter finds by ditching their daily commute can lend themselves to a variety of tasks that we’d otherwise put off, some of which can save us money.

With all those extra hours you can donate your time rather than your money to charity (as 89% of working parents say they'll do in their kids' schools), you can cook more at home and spend less on take-out for dinner, you’ll have time to DIY rather than hire a pro for minor home repairs, and so on. Not to mention much more time with your family or friends -- something that cannot have a price tag placed on it. Needless to say there are countless ways that having more time will save you more money.
