3 chores that pay to hire a pro

There are household chores that most of us feel we could tackle on our own, but when you think about it, it eats up a ton of our free time. Too many of us assume the cost of hiring a pro is so high that it can’t be justified, but what we’re doing is undervaluing our own time, as well as the stress relief even a little help can offers. Hiring a reliable local service company ends the fights over who’s cleaning up after Fido, who’s on toilet detail and whether the grass really needs mowed again.


I live in zip code 96145 and there doesn't appear to be many references in this area.

This story isn't helpful at all to me. I already know that I can't afford to pay for many of the services I would LIKE to have done, so have to do them myself. Basically, it hasn't told me anything I don't already know.

Re: The toilet cleaner guy. Seriously, Somebody must teach him how a woman cleans a toilet! He never even lifted the seat or got under the rim! His toilet wasn't cleaned at all.

I live in Shreveport,LA not much on this site here

I often wish I could afford someone to clean the house and mow the lawn. Unfortunately, My money bearly covers my mortgage, insurance, taxes, gasoline, home maintenance, food, job expenses etc. This video was useless for me.
