    Do it!
    I'm a SAHM and my kids go to daycare and I'm also considering it.

    I'm also considering hiring a cleaner but have no idea where to start! Should I hire through a company or look at adds on the net (Gumtree etc) also how much do the usually cost?

    Do it. I'm a SAHM and just hired a cleaner. She comes once a week for 2 hours and does the bathroom, vacuuming, mopping, dusting and whatever else she can fit in. I have a newborn and a 2 year old and just don't have the time nor the inclination to do all those things, and we can afford to pay someone else to do it. Like any good manager, I outsource and delegate where appropriate ;-)

    Do it if you want to. Cleaning is boring! And also have no guilt. I'm a working mum. I dont have a cleaner but my house is super messy so I wish I had one.

    I rang absolute domestics. The quote was $61/2hrs. I might do this fortnightly.

    You could alway try Gumtree and the local paper.

    I only pay mine $15 an hour (she charges less because she knows she will get 3-4 hours every week without fail). A few of my friends are $20 an hour.

    I've actually been contemplating getting a cleaner myself. It's an endless cycle to keep this place remotely tidy and even then most days something is going undone or forgotten due to what I call time deficit. It's nothing to be ashamed of, but I'd probably not tell the world, I know a few people who would have a snarky comment or two if they heard
