Saving time/energy/attention with text expansion

I get this monthly email (see image below) from TextExpander, the cloud-based macro app that I use and love.  Warms my heart to think I saved over 5 hours (OF MY LIFE) in May, 2020 by typing in a quick abbreviation (most/some of which I can remember without checking?) rather than whole phrases/sentences/paragraphs that tend to recur in the emails and reports etc. that I like.

There are similar services, like PhraseExpress and Typinator and Alfred. Maybe there is a free one?

I forget who turned me on to TextExpander and KeyRocket but I’m paying it forward here. I’d (insert heart emoji) to hear your shortcuts and energy-saving tips as well?
