We’re Happier if We Pay Someone Else to Do Our Chores
Nicole Dieker

I pay someone to clean my house, and I know this is technically frivolous spending, but I do not regret it at all. I pay the woman who cleans directly, so I know she is getting the full amount ($170 per visit). She has a key, and she comes while we are at work, and it is the best feeling to come home to a clean house. I still have to vaccum every 2 days (german shepherd problems) and I clean my kitchen counters frequently, but having someone else do the big cleaning is so nice. Other than this and buying only nonstop flights, I don’t really spend much on time saving things. Oh, added bonus of paying someone else to clean is that it cuts down on in-house resentment by the person who ends up cleaning more (this has been true with my husband and with prior roommates).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
