If we're sticking to wiz/sorc list, then I'd probably go with unseen servant. He'd be great for maintaining that immaculate appearance of my kitchen after I've made a big meal or a pot of soup stock, and 20 pounds is enough capacity to carry a lightly loaded backpack, or even an umbrella in the rain. He can get the door when I'm holding heavy groceries, and he can completely replace "the clapper" when it's time for lights out. the applications for an (effectively) unlimited duration unseen servant are legion.
One other big contender for me is expeditious excavation.
