WE are both retired on a fixed income; and can't afford to pay others to clean our home. At least we are alive & well.

I don't care to have strangers in my house... Secondly, I would have to clean before they came etc.

We are moving and are having a friend do a thorough clean up of the house and appliances before moving day. As messy (but not dirty) as we are, we should have maids, however we don't want our stuff rearranged. Maybe we will have our friend clean the stove annually, or something, still.

Every two weeks, Carla comes. She needs the money. I not only hate cleaning, but I can't do it anymore. $250 well spent.

Best quality of life splurge: hire a cleaning service for every other week. I still have to pickup and clean some things, but the leg up from having a bi-weekly service buys your life back. And, this is coming from a guy who really likes to clean!!

On rare occasions i have hired a crew to do a thorough job, and may again. But we're not usually overly fastidious and between us and the cats we take care of things OK.

I hear Broadway is struggling since the pandemic -- perhaps since they've focused too much on vapid, middle-brow spectacle. Where's the next "Odd Couple" or "Death of a Salesman"?
