Hiding money from your spouse is never a good idea, our columnist says.StefaNikolic/Getty Images Working remotely saves employees an average of 70 minutes per day, a study shows. Nine of those minutes come from less personal grooming, such as shaving or putting on makeup. Remote employees still spend much of their time savings working on their primary jobs. If you woke up this morning without an alarm, skipped the shower, and zipped up your favorite hoodie before logging on for a day of remote work, you're far from alone.New data show that remote workers spend an average of nine minutes less on workday personal grooming than commuters do, according to an ongoing work-from-home study by researchers at the University of Chicago, ITAM, MIT, and Stanford.In the latest update, roughly 4,000 workers were asked to share which tasks they performed on days they worked from home, and on days they headed to the office.On average, the office workers reported spending 28 minutes getting themselves ready to go to work, while remote workers took 19 before clocking in.The largest percentage point drops were from people opting not to put on make-up, shave, or pick out a fresh set of clothes for the day when they stayed home.
