    I don’t because I am a stay at home mom. If I worked, I might have someone come in once a week to do the bathroom and kitchen floors and chores like that.

    We have two cleaners that come every Tuesday. When they come they clean all three bathrooms, the mirrors and inside of the windows and vacuum/mop the place We also have someone to do all the ironing every Wednesday. It’s surprising how much household work there is still to do even with all their help. I would hate to be without them!

    I told Fiance that when we’re in a bigger house and a better position financially, I’d like to have someone come in once a month to do a deep cleaning because I HATE doing that.

    Growing up we had one. My mother worked full time, and my brother has cerebral palsy. Basically any free time she had (she had a flexible job) she would be taking him to therapies etc. Having a cleaner saved her sanity.

    I was one in college, but I was friends with the people I worked for (one before starting, another after working for her). If I ever had one, I would want similar.

    I don’t now, but once baby arrives I will probably look into it as I might have difficulty stay on top of things.

    when we were growing up my mum used to hire one to come in three times a week, she did ironing and cleaning. it is god to have one if you have a big house and can afford financially, it really helps a lot

    @Petite_Fraise:  I am southern so I was raised to take pride in my domestic skills. I’d feel horrible if i had a made. Like I was lazy.

    Oh dear God, yes.  She is here twice a week and she does everything.  Then she looks around for extra stuff to do

    She adores my dogs (3 German Shepherds) & is the sweetest person.  We had her and her bf at our wedding.

     

    My house isn’t especially small, 2100 sf, but this gem only charges me $85.  She likes coming here, she’s family to us.

    @farawayviolet:  In your moms case with a special needs child I’d understand needing help

    We never had one, but it is our agreement that we will once the house is paid off, so in about 1.5 years…

    We hired two ladies for a big cleanup before our son was born last year and now that I’m home with the baby, I do the main things (grocery shopping, cooking, laundry, dishes, vacuum, bathroom cleaning), but I know that more could be done and I don’t have time for it as I’m spending time with the baby, taking him to classes and playgroups and stuff.

    So even if I end up staying home with the kids for a few years, we’ll still have hired help once the mortgage is paid off, freeing my time to actually raise the kids!

    We have someone who comes once a month. We have a 1000 sq ft apartment now, but when we buy a larger house next year, we’ll increase the frequency.

    Yes, she comes once a week, she has been with us  since I was about 12 I think if not even younger so she is practically family. Before her we had another one who babysat my sister and I and used to play with us and read to us, so she was like family too 🙂
