21 ways to hire help around the house

You know how wonderful you feel on special occasions like Mother’s Day or your birthday, when everyone treats you like a queen for a day. Family members help out around the house and you get to spend time with loved ones — or all by yourself. Imagine if you could carry that feeling throughout the rest of the year, or better yet, clone yourself!

Hiring occasional help around the house is much easier than cloning or pleading with the family to help. Endless to-do list of chores? Done. Crazy, chaotic mornings? Handled.

Here are 21 ways you can use an extra set of hands to make your life easier.

1. Homework help

Do you spend hours badgering kids to do their homework every afternoon? Or do they need lots of assistance getting through their hardest subjects? From a homework helper or tutor to an after-school babysitter, get someone who can do that for you.

2. Driving

Need a ride to the airport? Kids need a ride to after-school activities? Someone in your neighborhood can help.

3. Afternoon babysitting

When was the last time you went shopping without the kids? Wasn’t it wonderfully stress-free? Hire a sitter for an hour or two and enjoy some alone time.

4. Meal planning and prep

Rid yourself of the stress of dinner planning. Someone else can plan and/or prepare easy, healthy meals for your family.

5. Before-school help

Getting everyone up, dressed, fed and out the door on time is difficult. Find someone who can come to your house in the morning to help with the chaos and hustle everyone along.

6. Date night babysitting

Bring the romance back into your relationship with an evening out (without the kids!). Hire a sitter, pick one of these budget-friendly date night ideas and start making plans.

7. House cleaning

Keep your home looking neat, clean and fresh, without spending hours scrubbing the floors.

8. Grocery shopping

Need to fill the fridge while you’re at work or spending time with the family? Have someone else do the shopping this week.

9. Pantry organization

Finally, for once and for all, all those expired goods will be sorted and thrown away and everything in your pantry will have a place, label and use .

10. Laundry

Buried under mounds of dirty clothes? Get help sorting, washing, folding and putting that mess away.

11. Closet organization

Can’t shut the doors on your closet anymore? Petrified of those complicated closet systems? Hire an assistant to organize your wardrobe and store seasonal items.

12. Storage organization

Everyone has a spot in their home where they store all of the things they may need “one day.” Is it your basement, garage, attic or a storage unit? Do you really need everything there? Hire someone to help go through the odds and ends, organize it and get rid of all the excess.

13. Garage sale assistance

Now that you’ve decluttered those areas, get rid of some of the things you found by planning a yard or garage sale. Hire someone to help set up and sell your unused items.

14. Dog walking

Let Fido release some of that energy midday with a long walk.

15. Gardening

Are weeds overtaking your garden? Hire someone to clean it up or simply water your plants.

16. Lawn mowing

That grass grows fast! Hire someone to trim your lawn every week while you manage bigger yard projects.

17. House sitting

Security systems can only catch so much. Have someone check on your house while you’re out, pick up your mail, water your flowers, etc.

18. Beach and pool safety

Kids tend to wander off at the beach or public pool. Hire an extra set of eyes to keep everyone safe around water. Look for someone with lifeguard training.

19. Holiday card help

Are you the type of person who starts writing out holidays cards in August? Yeah, neither are we. Check one thing off your holiday to-do list with an assistant to address and send cards.

20. Music library organization

Ever think of hiring someone to organize your tunes into manageable playlists and get rid of old music that takes up space on your device?

21. Party planning

This person can be a life-saver when it comes to your 4-year-old’s birthday party. From writing out invitations to assembling goodie bags, you need help making sure no detail slips through the cracks.

Most parents would agree that kids should help out around the house to some degree. Apart from the time you could save with a few extra helping hands, learning how to do basic household chores is a life skill kids need to learn. This weekend could be the perfect opportunity to kick-start a few new good habits.

So easy the kids can do them

1. Get them started on washing-up. As well as being useful, it can be fun, as who doesn’t love lots of bubbles! Drying-up is a useful skill, too.

2. Baking is a brilliant activity to share. Try making brownies for the week ahead… and cleaning up together too.

3. Washing the car together, with you supervising, is great for teamwork. Even small children can do the hubcaps – you’ll just have to wait until they’ve grown a bit before they can do the roof! Hubcaps can be cleaned easily with a bucket of warm, soapy water.

4. Stripping the bed is a satisfying job, especially for kids. You can also teach them to help you change their duvet covers.

5. Get them to help you with the dusting – give them a microfibre cloth and off they go! Dampen the cloth first for best results; your kids can help you do this.

6. If you have pets, this is a no-brainer. Feeding pets and cleaning out bowls, beds and cages, or helping with the fish tank, is definitely a job with their name on it and a great way for them to learn about responsibility. You can also show your kids how to use lint rollers to remove pet hair. These are cheap and easy to use, even for younger children.

7. Older kids, from 7 upwards, can make their own bed and draw the curtains. Encourage them to do this every day to inspire good habits.

8. Get them into the habit of hanging up their towel after a bath or shower (this can be surprisingly difficult, especially for teens!). Encourage your kids to hang towels near an open window – not on a radiator – to avoid increasing the risk of mould.

9. Ask your children to bring their plates to the kitchen after each meal and, if they are older, to empty the dishwasher. You could even encourage teenagers to help polish cutlery. Make a paste of three parts bicarbonate of soda to one-part water and then apply this to cutlery with a lint-free cloth.

10. Encourage them to put their shoes away when they come in – and help when you are polishing them. If you’re worried about the fumes from shoe polish, get your kids to clean the soles of their shoes. This can be done using a cloth or toothbrush dipped in a mixture of water and washing up liquid.

11. Get little ones to hand out the pegs when you are putting the washing on the line… and hang out the washing when they are tall enough.

12. Ask for help with watering the plants – with the appropriate size of watering can (you don’t want to tip them over!). If possible, get them to water plants just before they go to bed. This way, the heat from the sun shouldn’t be too intense, meaning water doesn’t evaporate as quickly from the grass and your kids don’t risk sunburn.

13. When doing the laundry, let them sort the clothes into whites and colours. Explain to this is to prevent colours running in the washing machine, as it’s never too early to learn handy cleaning tips!

14. Encourage their green-fingers. Give them a corner of the garden (or a pot) to grow plants in and get them raking up leaves and sweeping up outside.

Ways for Kids to Earn Money Around the House is a post by Sarah Small of SmallWorld at Home.

If your kids are like mine, they love to have a little cash on hand. While we do give our children a weekly allowance (see Our Allowance System), they are often looking for ways to earn more money. My youngest enjoys a few extra dollars to buy Lego sets or, more often, candy. My daughter has her eyes on saving for big-ticket items, like a nice camera.


My problem has always been that, while I know there are lots of extra jobs that need done around the house, I can never think of them when the kids seem to want them. Here is how this usually happened at our house:

Son: Mom, I really want a new Lego set but I don’t have any money. What jobs can I do to earn money?

Me: (cutting up vegetables, keeping my eye on the pot on the stove, tripping over the dog in the middle of the kitchen floor) Ummmm. I really can’t think of anything right now. Ask me later.

And then the moment passes. I’ve lost my opportunity to get some jobs done, and he has lost interest (until the next time I am making dinner).

I finally took the time to come up with a system that I wish I had thought of years ago: our Money Makers file.

DIY Chore System for Kids to Earn Money Around the House

First, I had to really think about jobs that are useful, not just token jobs to earn a few quarters. These fall into three categories:

  • regular household cleaning jobs (such as dusting and watering plants)
  • extra jobs I would love to have done but seldom have the extra time to do them (such as cleaning out kitchen cabinets)
  • outdoor jobs (pulling weeds, picking up sticks, etc.)

Next, I decided how much each job is worth based on the amount of work that goes into it and how much I would like someone else to do this job! Cleaning out a kitchen cabinet, for example, is low on my own cleaning priority list but something I would love to have done, so this is a $2 job. Dusting, on the other hand, is a quick and easy job for me, so it only pays 75 cents.

Then I made out a separate index card for each job that includes the name of the job, its price, and step-by-step instructions. Writing out instructions for each task took some time, but having these guidelines is essential.

While my teenage daughter could do any of the jobs without guidance, my 11-year-old son needs written instructions. These are quite detailed because, well, he is an 11-year-old boy. So, for example, here are the instructions for how to clean our glass coffee and end tables:

  1. Clear stuff off tables (except lamps)
  2. Spray lightly with Windex.
  3. Use one paper towel to wipe. Use second paper towel to dry.
  4. Use the same paper towels to clean base of lamps.
  5. Replace items.

I covered the cards with clear packing tape so that they can be taken along on the task without getting ruined. If you have a laminator you could use that. When a task is completed, my kids turn the card over and mark the date. When I pay them, I mark that. (I don’t always have cash available to pay immediately!)

We keep the job cards in a library card holder on the refrigerator. I initially came up with about a dozen jobs but have been adding to them as we get into all the summer jobs that need doing.

This simple system provides a constant source of income for my kids—if they choose to use it—and gets some nitty gritty cleaning jobs done around my house. You can easily use this system for any ages and adjust it as your kids get older. I’m looking forward to the day we can add lawn mowing, pruning, and weed-whacking to the list!

Teaching kids to contribute to the daily running of the household is an important part of their education as they grow up and their taking responsibility for even the smallest tasks can make a world of difference to your own day.

Regular jobs around the house can form the basis for the payment of pocket money too, which gives kids an added incentive to complete tasks week in, week out. The best way to establish the types of jobs, says Practical Parenting, is to start small, opting for tasks that are ‘little and often’ to establish a routine and help children to develop an understanding of the value of these tasks.

Simon Whitbread

One of the most important things is to have patience with your child and both the time it takes them to complete tasks, and the results of their efforts – they may not be up to your standards but will improve over time.

Here’s a list of what your kids can help with – depending on their age. In each case you should be adding, not swapping jobs to their load, eg. a primary school child could continue to help feed your pet, as well as take them for a short walk close to home.

Derek Swalwell


As soon as kids know where to get their own toys and books from in the home, they can learn to return them to that place. Encourage little ones to pack away after each activity, before the move on to the next one.

Other little jobs:

  • Helping with washing – handing and collecting pegs and small laundry items as you hang out and bring in the washing
  • Stacking books in the reading corner
  • Helping feed the family pet

Jody D’arcy


Once they start school, children learn to take on jobs in the classroom and it’s a natural progression to follow this trend when they’re at home too – it’s all part of being a big kid!

Tasks they can help with:

  • Making their bed
  • Unpacking lunchbox and drink bottle at the end of the school day
  • Hanging/putting school bag in its place each afternoon
  • Help to:
    • Set & clear the table
    • Pack unpack the dishwasher

Shania Shegedyn

Primary school age

  • Tidying their room
  • Packing and unpacking school bag
  • Taking out rubbish and recycling
  • Sweeping floor and outdoor deck/verandah
  • Helping hang out the washing – handing you items to hang/collecting items as they come off the line
  • Pairing socks together
  • Putting away folded clothes into their drawers
  • Squeegee floor in bathroom after their bath or shower
  • Refill toilet rolls and liquid soap
  • Water garden
  • Walk dog close to home
  • Run to the shop for milk or bread, if nearby

High school age

This is the time to hone housekeeping skills and spend a little time with your child initially to recap on getting techniques right for a job you’re happy to hand over completely. Consider what your kids can achieve weekly and assisgn extra tasks as needed, which may attract bonus pocket money.

  • Making own lunches
  • Taking out rubbish and recycling
  • Hanging out and bringing in washing
  • Water garden
  • Vacuuming – assign one room at a time
  • Packing and emptying dishwasher
  • Hand washing and drying pots and pans
  • Outside sweeping/raking of leaves etc.
  • Mopping floors
  • Cleaning mirrors
  • Dusting
  • Small shopping lists

When they enter senior years at school is the time for your children to take more adult responsibilities such as washing and ironing their own uniforms, and cooking a simple family meal once a week.

10 Lucrative Jobs for Kids From Home

  1. Computer Programmer or Coding Expert

Computer programming is probably one of the most lucrative jobs that you can do from home. There are so many computer programming languages now that there is plenty of work to go around for great programmers.

In case you weren’t aware, some of the more popular computer programming languages include:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Python
  • PHP
  • C++.

The popularity of these computer languages do differ and some are easier to learn than others. If your child enjoys computer programming, he or she is in luck. The salaries for these skills can vary but it is not uncommon for good computer programmers to graduate from college to a job paying almost close to $100,000, especially if they are in Silicon Valley.

According to Indeed, the average computer programmer earns more than $70,000 which is more than $33 per hour.

Having a child is definitely expensive but this is the more reason to encourage and guide your child to acquire skills that could help him or her to acquire lucrative jobs from home. Not only does it help them to understand the value of money and hone their entrepreneurial skills but it also helps them to build a good work ethic early on.

A clear household chore list is important to keep the household running smoothly and to keep everything tidy. Start with a master list and then break it down into individual lists for each member of the family. In this way, all the chores are divided evenly, and no one has an unfair amount of work to do to keep the home in shape.

The Master Household Chore List

A master list of household chores is the place to begin. You can do this on paper or on a computer spreadsheet. On this list, write down every chore that needs to be done and how often it is needed. This should also include outside tasks as well as indoor tasks. If you would rather use a pre-formatted document instead of creating your own, click to download a free printable household chore checklist. If you need help downloading the printable checklist, check out these helpful tips.


For example, you may begin by listing daily chores like:

  • Sweeping
  • Vacuuming
  • Washing dishes
  • Feeding pets
  • Doing laundry
  • Preparing meals
  • Cleaning bathrooms
  • Dusting


Next, you’ll list weekly chores such as:

  • Washing bedding
  • Mopping floors
  • Watering plants
  • Mowing the lawn
  • Weeding the garden
  • Taking out the trash
  • Wash the car


Monthly chores should be listed next:

  • Washing windows
  • Bathing pets
  • Clean refrigerator
  • Change air filters on a furnace or air conditioner
  • Clean blinds
  • Vacuum curtains


Even yearly chores can be included such as:

  • Shampooing the carpets
  • Winterize the house
  • Clean garage
  • Prune trees and shrubs

By this point you have a pretty substantial list of tasks that need to be done on a regular basis to keep everything running smoothly. You can probably think of many more items to add from the list. You probably also see some that do not apply to you. That’s okay. Simply create a master list that reflects what needs to be done in your family.

Individual Lists

Now that you have your master list, you are ready to break it down into smaller lists for the individuals in your home. It is important to consider the ages and abilities of those in the family, so you don’t place too high of expectations on anyone. You should also consider breaking some chores down into smaller jobs that can be accomplished by youngsters who may not be able to handle the whole job.

Breaking Down Chores

For example, you have “dishes” on your master list. Dishes can actually be broken down into several smaller tasks. If you have children, they can accomplish this one chore together. It will be more fun having someone to work with and it will allow smaller children to feel valued and able to help out. Here is how the chore dishes can be broken down:

  • Rinse dishes
  • Unload clean dishes from the dishwasher
  • Put away dishes (for taller kids who can reach the shelves after smaller kids pile them on the counter)
  • Load dirty dishes
  • Add soap and run dishwasher

If you hand wash your dishes, one child can gather the dishes off the table (and maybe put away leftovers), another can wash and rinse dishes, another can dry and put away dishes. Drying and putting away can be two separate tasks as well, depending on the abilities of each child.

Personalize Chore Lists

Create a list for each person in the house with each task broken down as much as necessary so that everyone has a job to do. Consider swapping lists occasionally so everyone can learn different jobs, and there is less chance of someone being bored from doing the same thing over and over. In this way, the entire chore list for the household is broken down into manageable tasks that everyone can help with. Everyone can enjoy the sense of pride from doing important things that keep the home running smoothly and looking nice all the time.


When you are compiling your individual lists, it is a good idea to call your family together and discuss what they are willing to do and what they just can’t tolerate. If one family member gags at the mere thought of cleaning the litter box, it’s probably not going to be a good idea to put that task on that person’s list. You will either not see the job accomplished or you will have a very unhappy family member.

Understanding Responsibility

When you discuss your master list with your family members, make it clear that everyone will have jobs that they are responsible for. It is also helpful to make a rule that recreational activities will be withheld for those who do not complete their household chore list in a timely manner. For example, no TV or video games until all chores are done.

Finding Motivation

You might even want to create a system for motivation to encourage young ones to accomplish their jobs with minimal prodding. Some kids are happy with a chart and stars each time they finish a job. Some might be better motivated by a family activity each week (or month) that chores are accomplished without fighting or arguing. You know what works best for your kids. Also, be prepared to try different things. If the chart isn’t doing the job, try something else. Ask the kids what a good reward system should consist of and go from there.

Tips for Household Chore Lists Without Kids

If you don’t have kids to help out with the chores, having a list is still a great way to keep yourself organized and on track. Try these simple tricks to keep you on top of your chores.


When you are single staying on top of your chores might not be top on your plate. To make sure that your friends don’t walk into the danger zone, you can try:

  • Create a master list for each room and hang it there to remind you of what needs to be done and when.
  • Make a cleaning schedule.
  • Stay on top of daily chores like dishes.
  • Don’t forget to use the cleaning aids like vacuums and dishwashers.

Couples and Roommates

Chores can easily erode a marriage or a roommate relationship. Especially if the chores aren’t considered even or someone isn’t doing their share. To make sure that both people are happy, give these tips a try:

  • Clearly establish what clean means to each of you to make sure you are both meeting expectations.
  • Discuss the chores that each will complete. Making sure to equally divvy up the daily chores, like making the bed, and weekly chores, like cleaning the bathroom.
  • Keep a checklist so that you can check off the chore to keep yourself accountable.
  • Set a timetable for the chores to be completed by. For example, dishes can’t go longer than two days, etc.
  • Be flexible. Sometimes things come up that are unavoidable. Helping your partner with their chores or doing them together can keep you both happy.
  • Re-evaluate the chore list every few weeks and possibly switch it up.

Happy Housework

Chores can cause a lot of headache for parents, singles, couples and roommates alike. Therefore creating a chore list can ease stress and make everyone accountable. Just remember that as you create your chore list that no one is perfect. Be flexible and do your best. Focus on what you have done instead of what you have not done. You’ll feel better about yourself and your home if you avoid becoming a perfectionist.

Household chores: good for children, good for the whole family

Children can learn a lot from doing household chores.

Doing chores helps children learn about what they need to do to care for themselves, a home and a family. They learn skills they can use in their adult lives, like preparing meals, cleaning, organising and keeping a garden.

Being involved in chores also gives children experience of relationship skills like communicating clearly, negotiating, cooperating and working as a team.

When children contribute to family life, it helps them feel competent and responsible. Even if they don’t enjoy the chore, when they keep going they get the feeling of satisfaction that comes with finishing a task.

And sharing housework can also help families work better and reduce family stress. When children help out, chores get done sooner, and parents have less to do. This frees up time for the family to spend doing fun things together.

How to get children involved in chores

The secret for involving children in household chores is asking for contributions that you value and that suit your children’s ages and abilities. A chore that’s too hard for a child can be frustrating – or even dangerous – and one that’s too easy might be boring.

Even a young child can start to help out if you choose activities that are right for his age. You can start with simple jobs like looking after his own toys. Chores like this send the message to your child that his contribution is important.

It’s also important to think about chores or tasks that get your child involved in caring for the family as a whole. A simple one is getting your child to help with setting or clearing the table. Jobs like these are likely to give your child a sense of responsibility and participation.

If your child is old enough, you can have a family discussion about chores. This can reinforce the idea that the whole family contributes to how the household runs. Children over six years old can help decide which chores they’d prefer.

You can motivate your child to get involved in chores by:

  • doing the chore together until your child is ready to do it on her own
  • being clear about what each person’s chores are for each day or week – write them down so they’re easy to remember
  • talking about why it’s great that a particular job has been done
  • showing an interest in how your child has done the job
  • praising positive behaviour
  • using a reward chart to track completed chores and give small rewards like choosing a TV program or family meal.

Lots of encouragement keeps children interested in helping. If your child’s first efforts aren’t that great, you can boost his chances of success by explaining the job again. Keep telling your child he’s doing well. This way, he’ll feel rewarded.

Pocket money for children’s chores

Linking your child’s chores to pocket money might lead to bargaining about how much chores are worth. It might also interfere with the idea of doing chores just because everyone in the family has a responsibility to help.

But if your child feels motivated by doing chores for pocket money, go with it. You might even consider giving bonuses for extra chores if your child is saving for something special.

If you decide to pay pocket money for chores, explain chores clearly so there’s no confusion or bargaining about what needs to be done and when.

Some families don’t link chores to pocket money, but might pay extra pocket money for extra chores.

Chores for kids of different ages

Children can help out around the house in many different ways. For example, they can simply go outside to play when the grown-ups need to do big jobs in the house. Some families expect older children to help with younger children – amusing them, distracting them, protecting them and so on.

Here are some ideas for chores for children of different ages.

Toddlers (2-3 years)

  • Pick up toys and books.
  • Put clothes on clothes hooks.
  • Set placemats on the dinner table.

Preschoolers (4-5 years)

  • Set the table for meals.
  • Help with preparing meals, under supervision.
  • Help put clean clothes into piles for each family member, ready to fold.
  • Help with grocery shopping and putting away groceries.
  • Hand you wet clothes to be hung out to dry.

School-age children (6-8 years)

  • Water the garden and indoor plants.
  • Feed pets.
  • Clean the bathroom sink, wipe down kitchen benches, mop floors or take out rubbish.
  • Help hang out clothes and fold washing.
  • Put away crockery and cutlery.
  • Help with choosing meals and shopping.
  • Help with meal preparation and serving, under supervision.

You can keep your child motivated by letting her change jobs from time to time, to keep pace with her changing interests. This is also a way of rotating chores fairly among family members.

Once you have decided to and you have made up your mind to make night office cleaning jobs your extra source of income, then you may consider reaching a decision as to whether you would apply for a job with a commercial cleaning company and work for one or two nights per week. If they cannot employ you to work for a few nights each week, then you will be left with a second choice which is to source for your own clients by yourself. You will begin with gathering information on how to begin your own business. If you develop passion for what you do, you could grow this into a full-time business. Note that there are franchises you can buy also.
Getting Clients
The kinds of clients you could obtain are property managers, motels, banks, daycare, schools, churches, bars, restaurants, landlords, stores and private building owners. It will be easy to increase the volume of your office cleaning business if you establish a good reputation among your clients. You can let prospective customers know that proper maintenance can prevent germs from spreading and reduce the number of sick hours employees stay out of work. You can also tell them that their customers evaluate a business based on impressions such as the way a restroom or lobby appears. A clean commercial space will also deter rodents and insects. A way to differentiate your business is to offer “green cleaning”, using environmentally friendly products and equipment.
After official hours, sanitation is an important aspect of keeping a business looking neat and presentable when visitors and employees arrive the next day. That is why night office cleaning jobs is very important especially when the business of running an office and daily chaos takes over. The office equipment, floors and restrooms will have to be maintained. Pay attention to details such as mirrors, windows, and counters. Clients who visit the office will see these superficial surfaces. Certain businesses will have specific needs. A dentist office, for instance, will need you to sanitize equipment and all surfaces.
Tasks Involved in Night Cleaning Jobs
Always keep record of how many offices you can clean each evening and what you will need for each job. For you to do this effectively, you can make use of a check list for commercial office cleaning. You may want to review this list with your customer to see if there is anything they want to add. This will help in keeping track of the supplies you will be needing for each job, if the client does not supply their own, what you have to do and what time you have to get there. Tasks to note are:

  • Empty wastebaskets
  • Vacuum all carpets, couches and chairs
  • Mop all hardwood floors
  • Dust all surfaces
  • Clean the break room
  • Disinfect doorknobs, chairs, computers, light switches, tables and desks
  • Polish brass and silver accents
  • Stock and replenish bathroom supplies
  • Clean all mirrors
  • Disinfect toilets and sinks
  • Wax floors

With this list, you will find yourself performing a good job and doing it promptly. You can never tell whether this might fulfill your dream of having your own business, and hiring your own staff. If you have a job already which can cover all your living expenses but you want extra cash, learning how to do night office cleaning jobs will be suitable for you especially if you were to be laid off your day job, you will be ready to do a janitorial business as your full time job.
