Drowning in laundry and housework - An hour or two of help a couple of times a week needed

Postby meandmyfour » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:39 am

I'm really not coping with keeping on top of things at home.  Four kids, husband, work.  We have a cleaner once a week which is wonderful but what I dream of is someone local who wouldn't mind popping in a couple of times a week for an hour or two and just doing some of the laundry or having a mini clean.  Does such a person exist?! I know it might  not seem worth their while for such a short visit...any thoughts gratefully received! I'm drowning here.. ;)

Use one of the online platforms to book house help when you need it. I've used Housekeep before, just to book in cleaning jobs for a few hours when I needed them.

You get someone random each time, so might not be the best quality, but if you're there to supervise then this is looks good for you.

Also you can find cleaners on taskrabbit website.

Both sites offer discounts for referrals, so if you're interested, send me a private message and I can send you a discount referral code for your first booking.

Yes, I can help!  In two ways.

1. I am a professional Organiser (www.messgoddess.com) and Home Sytlist (not to be mistaken with a declutterer who tidy but usually set up long term stratergies).  You might consider having me in to see if I can help set up some organisation to help you stay organised longe?  This could also include me re-training your cleaner so she can help to keep this organised.

2.  I have just recently done a search for exactly the same thing for other clients.  Staff to come in a couple hours a day.  I am interviewing them this week.

The note above recommended using a temp website - they are good for a one off but if I have undestood your not you are looking for long term.  

I have attached a couple of photos of recent work.

Happy to chat on the phone to help establish exactly what areas you need help and advice you.  Tania
