Who Helps with Your Housework?

I’m secretly, or not so secretly, coveting a cleaning service. It’s something that I’ve mentioned once or 1,000 times to my husband, without much response. It’s not that he doesn’t want me to have help, in fact he’s extremely supportive of the idea. It’s just that the same conversation about hiring someone to help out also inevitably involves a discussion of how much it’s going to cost, which then leads me to put the idea on hold because I can’t justify—to myself—paying someone to clean our tiny house. Of course, the flip side of this is that I’m tired of spending my Saturdays with a mop and dust rag.

So I ask you, who helps with your housework? Is it your cleaning service? Your husband? Your kids? Your Momtourage—the group of people in your life who help, support and motivate you when you need it? Whether you have a Momtourage or are in need of one, check out these organizing ideas and creative cleaning tips. Or share the story of whose in your Momtourage and be entered to win that housekeeping help that I’ve been wanting.
