The relaxing feeling of a tidy house is one we all enjoy. Consider these 16 chores to hire help for to make your life easier.

Whether its the relaxing feeling of a tidy living room or the comfort of an orderly bedroom, we all know the satisfaction of enjoying order where domestic chaos once existed.
 
Now just imagine you could feel that satisfaction every day of the week! No more dirty kitchens, dusty shelves or dysfunctional garages to contend with after a long, hard day.
 
If you find yourself day dreaming at the thought then finding help around the house could be easier than constantly pleading with your family to help keep your home clean and tidy. Here’s a list of 16 chores to hire a housekeeper to tackle to make your life easier.

 


  1. Babysitting for Date Night
    Bring the romance back into your life with an evening out (without the kids!). Pick one of these 101 cheap dates and start making plans.
     
  2. Cleaning the House
    Keep your home looking neat, clean and fresh, without spending hours scrubbing the floors.
     
  3. Walking the Dog

  4. Help With Homework
    Do you spend hours badgering kids to do their homework every afternoon? Or do they need lots of assistance getting through their hardest subjects? From a tutor to an after-school babysitter, get someone who can do that for you.
     
  5. Driving
    Need a ride to the airport? Kids need a ride to after-school activities? Someone in your local area could help.
     
  6. Laundry
    Buried under mounds of dirty clothes? Ask your extra set of hands to sort, wash and fold that mess away.
     
  7. Food Shopping

  8. Organizing the Pantry
    Finally, everything in your pantry will have a place, label and use.
     
  9. Prepping Meals
    Rid yourself of the stress of dinner planning. Someone else can plan and/or prepare healthy easy meals for you.
     
  10. Gardening
    Are weeds overtaking your garden? Hire someone to clean it up or simply water your plants. That grass grows fast! Hire a gardener to trim your lawn every week, while you manage bigger yard projects.
     
  11. House Sitting
    Security systems can only catch so much. Have someone check on your house while you're out, pick up your mail, water your flowers, etc.
     
  12. Afternoon Babysitting

  13. Early Morning Help
    etting everyone up, dressed, fed and out the door on time is difficult. Find someone who can come to your house in the morning to help with the chaos and hustle everyone along.
     
  14. Storage Organising
    Everyone has a spot in their home where they store all of the things they may need "one day". Is it your basement, garage, attic, storage unit? Do you really need everything there? Hire someone to help go through the odds and ends, organize it and get rid of all the excess.
     
  15. Assistance With a Garage Sale

  16. Help With Party Planning
