I don't know why I think of weird things like this, but the other day I was thinking, What if you could have a free maid Monday through Friday but for only 20 minutes - what would you have her do? So take this as an easy rhetorical question and don't start thinking about strangers in your house stealing your watch or whatever. Just stay with the free 20 minute maid concept. She doesn't steal or drink your wine or eat your cheese or make copies of your bank statements. She won't even accidentally let your cat out. She just does housework for 20 minues. And she's FREE!
I had fun thinking about this. 20 minutes isn't a very long time. For instance, she could not do a load of laundry or fill the dishwasher and let it run and empty it. And I started thinking about the chores I hate that take 20 minutes or less. I kept changing my mind, but I've narrowed it down to this:
Monday: clean the toilets and sweep the bathrooms
Tuesday: clean My Sweetie's bathtub and sinks
Wednesday: Vacuum carpets (although I'm not positive this fits the time frame)
Thursday: sweep kitchen, entryway and hardwood hallways
Friday: clean the toilets and sweep the bathrooms
I think that would work for me although I had a hard time ruling out dusting. I hate dusting but you have to move all your stuff and she probably wouldn't put it back exactly where I want it.
So what would you do with your 100 minutes a week of free maid service?
