How much time does your personal admin take?

How much time does your personal admin take?

We all have to do it – deal with bills, bank online, book travel and holidays, file letters and receipts, collect vouchers, sort out problems with the home, cope with tax credits and benefits, manage kids' school requests and more.

How much time do you spend in a TYPICAL WEEK on personal admin (excluding cleaning your home/gardening)? If you don't do it by the week but save it up, then proportion it as if per week.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
