Do you hate running errands? If so, you're not the only one. Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project, feels your pain, and she put together a little video to help you solve this problem.

You can post your own Pigeon of Discontent at any time; also, from time to time, I'll make a special call for suggestions.

You can check out the archives of videos here. It's crazy-my YouTube channel has passed the mark for one million viewers!
