I'm surprised she let you go this long. Get her one ASAP, especially if she works that much. My wife stays at home and we still got one, Lol.

agree ... my wife only works part time but also is a care giver for her 95 y/o mother in a nursing home, plus she does all our books. We have a lady (and she sometimes brings her adult daughter) that comes about once a month or more frequent if we are expecting company. She does all the floors (carpet & tile) and bathrooms (3.5) down stairs, about 2800 square feet for $80-90 each time. The upstairs is merely a big game room / grandkids sleeping area with bath and closet that only gets used when the grands come to town and pretty easy for us to cover that in about an hour.

No, was hoping someone had. Wifes up for a new hip, second one, and at 70 she has a hard time. Getting old sucks, golden years my a$$

After you get her a maid, hold it over her head. Make her feel guilty.
That’s what my wife does to me over me no longer doing the yard.
I’m 50 and did it every year up to last year. Just not enough time.

Merry Maids costs twice as much as the highest cost cleaning lady I have ever used. Not worth it unless it is a corporate commercial property.

You need a cleaning lady. Doc is the only one on here who had a maid (or with him also a nanny). Maids come every day, or at least several times a week. Maid can also do meal prep. Do not pull a Jerry Seinfeld episode called The Maid..... and your wife will kill you.

Cleaning ladies come once a week or every other week. Their duties vary. Pay is dependent on how much you want done and legal status. Not kidding. In Ohio, illegals were not Hispanic, but Polish.


Our cleaning lady cleans our entire house (4000') at a base line, does the laundry, cleans the punch list I leave her, and bitches about the commies taking over our government. She just got her citizenship last year. She is from Argentina.

It costs $160 a week and she arrives at 8AM and leaves when she is done. 12:30-1:30. We overpay her, but she said my wife set the price. She does not steal and I have tested her.

A maid cooks/cleans/grocery shops/etc. A cleaning lady cleans the house a couple times a month. I'd like to have a maid but have settled for a cleaning lady. 2 come together for 4 hours for $60. 2,400sq ft. My wife usually cleans before they come which I don't understand. They don't speak english very well. I make sure they come when I'm @ work so I don't have to deal w/them. They haven't stole anything yet, that I've discovered. We had an older white lady before. She wasn't very good, wasn't ever on time, took all day to clean & "lost" one of my wife's expensive diamond earrings. She also had the filthiest vehicle I've ever come across. The outside was dirty but the inside was absolutely full of junk & trash.

I think I am getting screwed a little but with twins the house is typically a mess and I do not bitch about the $145 for 2300sf every two weeks. I like my cleaning lady and she is not a maid.

No maids here. I have kids, and they have chores. Just like I did.

My house is my sanctuary. I wouldn’t feel comfortable having a stranger in it all the time like that. Maybe I am weird.
