I have been housekeeping for many years and cant believe how many new csutomers i have gotten lately. My husband and i planned for the worse when people started losing jobs thinking that my services would be the last thing on earth someone wanted to pay for. Now i am busier htan ever. What do you think it is? Maybe people are dlealing with enough stress and dont want to dleal with housework?

Maybe it's because some previous stay-at-home parents have found it necessary to return to work. I know one of my friends who runs a cleaning service is experiencing a bit of an increase for that reason.

I would believe it! Since the economy tightened up several of my co-workers have been cut and suddenly I've found myself doing twice as much work. I'm exhausted by the time I get home each day and it is worth it to me to pay someone to come tidy up a few times a week rather than to have to deal with it myself. It doesn't cost nearly as much as people think. Finding someone dependable is the hardest part.
