    Any advice for hiring a house cleaner?  DH and I plan to pay someone eventually, and I don’t even know the best place to begin, especially if we don’t use a company.

    $25/hour and she comes once a week unless I’m especially messy and/or having people over.

    Want to hear something unbelievable?  We pay $10 (TEN dollars) an hour!!!!!  

    It’s a lady who runs her own service, and we heard about her through friends.  I left it open for her to name her price when we first hired her, and she volunteered $10/hr.  Now that she’s come a few times and we like her, we suggested $12/hr to make it worth her time to come to our small house.  She comes every 2 weeks and spends 1.5 hours at our 850 sq ft house.  

    So $18/every 2 weeks for a lovely clean home.  Sold.

    @priyawouldntwannabeya:  I’m literally so lazy with house cleaning and have so many other things I’d rather do. She does it all, even picking up doggy poop. She’s there for 6 hours but our house is quite large and my husband is quite picky. For just basics, I’d imagine carving a couple hours off that.

    $30/hour but only because we have a 500sq ft 1 bedroom condo that can be scrubbed and sparkling, including windows/fridge/oven, in less than 2 hours.

    She usually has a 4 hour minimum at $25/hour, but made an exception to her minimum bill since our place is so small. We decided on $30/hour, so $60 total once a month.
