I would be willing to pay extra money for someone to put up traffic cones on the way to work so I could have my own lane the whole way.

Dishes. Even emptying the dishwasher, cause that doesn’t get done around here until both sinks are stacked with gross dirty dishes. I’d love if someone could come to my home once a day to empty the dishwasher and collect dishes from various locations in the house to wash them or run the dishwasher.

A sink full of dishes and a dishwasher to empty really discourages me from cooking on busy days. I like my kitchen to be perfect and prepared before I delve in.

amarriedgal:  How about writing thank-yous for weddings, wedding showers, baby showers, christenings etc? Get the bride to send you the list, write them all up then send back for her to sign. Or maybe imitate her signature lol.  You could also offer to write up all the addresses on the envelopes and put a stamp on so all she has to do is sign, seal and post them as a batch.  

Places like Vistaprint do cheap return address labels, so maybe as an added “surprise bonus” order some labels as well, stick them on the back of the envelopes and include the leftovers in your package being sent back to the bride to sign and post.  I ordered some Mrs and Mrs xxxx address labels for a friend’s wedding shower and they were her favourite gift even though not the most expensive.

AussieEncore:  You don’t think the change in handwriting would be obvious?

julies1949:  Depends how well they knew you … you could probably get away with it for 80% of the guest list!

AussieEncore:  I meant the difference between the note and the signature.

Not totally what you’re looking for, but do you mind if I post my wish list?

A home health nurse who would only be minutes away from me, on call 24/7.

A maid

A cook

Someone to take care of the snow/grass/weeds

A painter

Good grocery delivery where I could trust the produce selection for days when I don’t feel up to doing it myself

An organizer

A driver for medical appointments when there isn’t free parking or I don’t feel up to driving.

A gift wrapper

Some of these I could hire someone for, but it’s too expensive!

Someone to polish silverware and an antique silver tea and coffee set.
