    I'm a SAHM and have a cleaner.

    If I worked I'd probably go back to paying for my laundry to be done though.

    We also get our laundry done. We have just worked it into the budget. It costs us $100 p/w to have a cleaner and get our laundry picked up and dropped off clean, dry and folded.

    I justify it by the fact that we don't drink much, do not smoke and although we do go out we certainly don't spend as much as our friends do every week. It's awesome not having to worry about it and eliminated a lot of the fighting that used to happen about who needs to do what and when. Still plenty to do around the house but the bulk of it is done. Worth every cent.

    personally no, but thats because Id end up doing it all before they came, so I didnt look like a pig lol!
    And Id still have to pick up all the mess so they could clean, TBH the actual floors/bathroom/loo/kitchen scrub is the shortest part of my cleaning: the sorting out junk and washing take most of the time.

    In the next few weeks I will be working full time, so will DF.
    We have decided to hire a cleaner for 2-3 hours a week, to help with floors and bathroom cleaning.
    We quite happily do washing of clothes and dishes.
    We want help in the areas we lack and don't want to spend weekends cleaning where we can do family things with our son.

    Yes.
    However I might return 3 days.
    I'm considering getting a cleaner if I work 3 days (fortnightly).

    Easily that and often more. I do commercial cleaning for a couple of hours as a contracter on a weekend and get paid 3x that but I supply all my own equipment.
