Small space or not, I am very particular when it comes to maintaining our apartment. I’ve always been meticulous when it comes to my things, and now with children, I am even more obsessed with keeping everything in its place; and when things go missing, it drives me batty. As for other chores like laundry, I don’t like to hand this chore off, because then clothes end up getting put back where they don’t belong.The before:
Finally, around the time Gemma was born, I caved, and relinquished some of my obsessive way. Having had complications with Gemma’s delivery, some day to day activities became taxing, so I decided to hire someone to help clean our home. While I never gave up the laundry, my cleaning lady still comes once a week to help with those time consuming cleaning chores which are difficult to manage with a hectic schedule. Having chores like cleaning the bathrooms, changing out the sheets, and cleaning the floors, tackled for me, helps this mama out tremendously. She evens straightens up the kids playroom, which the kids tend to trash in a matter of seconds. At least its one less day I need to straighten out the toys. Anything helps!
For years, I had been using the same cleaning lady, but after some less than adequate cleaning sessions, I felt like it was time for a change. I was recently introduced to MyClean, an online cleaning service. Having had the same house cleaner for so long, I expected it would take someone else weeks to get into the groove. I was so surprised by the thoroughness of the MyClean rep, and when she pulled the couch and refrigerator out to get behind, without being instructed to do so, I realized I had found my new cleaning service.The After:
MyClean offers different cleaning packages and every session includes their 50 Point Checklist. Additional services can include: inside the trash can, baseboards, extra-strength scrubbing in bathroom/kitchen, and heavy dusting for your blinds. Theirs services can be the perfect aide for special occasions, like before or after a party, house guests, shedding pets, and they even do offices! Their services are available in all of the 5 boroughs of NYC, and Chicago.
There is nothing quite like coming home to a clean home. With our busy lives, and needy little ones, it’s great to know that I can rely on MyClean to keep my house tidy, while freeing up some much needed mommy tim for me.Use discount code StrollerInTheCity30 for $30 off your first cleaning.

Oh this will come in super handy for next month when I am hosting 30 guests for Christmas Eve.
I feel that once we cut out something we really dislike doing, it really opens the doors and makes mommy life a bit easier. You cannot do it all and sometimes have to surrender. Keep up the good work!
Great service! Are they available in the Pennsylvania area?
They are not at the moment, but I am sure soon!
