Talking to Bryan just now we came up with the following question.

It seems that for most people it is easier to work for money on weekdays than on weekends. This suggests that when trading off working for money versus leisure or home production, people should put more emphasis on working for money on weekdays, and less on weekends. So for example, you should do more leisure and home production on weekends than on weekends, which certainly seems the case.

But does this work on the other margins as well? Do people pay to have pizza delivered on weekdays, but drive to pick it up on weekends? Do people pay for parking on weekdays, but drive around looking for free parking on weekends? Any other similar predictions hold?
