The Logic Behind Hiring Household Help
Once a week, a cleaning service comes by some houses and do what I refer to as ‘the heavy cleaning.’ Floors get washed, bathrooms get scrubbed and just about everything in the house gets dusted. In theory, these are all tasks that you could fit into your schedule at some point, rather than paying someone to handle. In reality, for your household, this is the only way that cleaning much beyond laundry and dishes will ever get done!
The Logic of the Decision
On the math side of the equation, the decision is easy: you can earn more working through your own business than it costs to bring in maid service. Furthermore, the tasks that the maid service completes require about an hour to 2hrs for them, but take closer to three or four hours for me to do.having them around can give you time to spend with you family and friends,the make those visits you’ve been procrastinating.
Of course, if you aren’t going to spend the time you save by bringing in some household help on work, the math gets a little more iffy. You’ve got to determine the value of your free time and judge whether it’s more important to have that free time or the money you would otherwise get. In a lot of situations, it makes sense to choose keeping the money over freeing up some extra time.
This isn’t a choice that everyone has,In order to bring in help and not do everything for oneself, there already needs to be a cushion in the bank account. It is a luxury to have someone come in and handle chores that you might otherwise do yourself. Choosing to spend money on that particular luxury, rather than another one is a personal choice. If there was some other luxury I truly wanted — a certain vacation, a fast car — you could stop maid service tomorrow and start saving for that luxury instead. It’s a personal choice and some of us our personal view of luxury involves not having to clean the bathroom :) hehehe
