'Alfred' is an innovative chore services startup that lets you hire a person -- an 'Alfred' -- to run weekly errands for you. These errands can include purchasing groceries, picking up or dropping off packages or doing the laundry. Users have to pay $32 a week for the service plus additional costs for groceries or shopping errand-related costs.

Developed by Marcela Sapone and Jessica Beck, Alfred cllects data about you and your preferences to personalize your chore services experience over time. For example, the service can remember your dietary restrictions and product preferences. Your 'Alfred' can also automatically restock products for you so that you never run out of basic errands again.

Considering how busy many people are these days in the modern urban environment, a $32-a-week chore services setup is quite a godsend.
