My parents were busy people. Most are, I guess. But between them they had three, sometimes four businesses and us lot. Three kids. A busy schedule of community and sporting engagements too. Busy people. Shorter version. It was a natural progression to bring in someone to help. Common sense really!

I knew then and there I wanted someone to clean my house when I grew up. Nothing beats that the whole house being fresh and clean at once thing. I’ve never been great at that myself. Fail. So hold on to your simple dreams people, because when I moved out and into my own place it was something I put in place practically from my first decent pay cheque.

A clean house on a Friday when you arrive home is a thing of joy, let me tell you. When Oneflare contacted me with a giveaway post idea I thought heck yes, you guys would totally be interested in that. And March has sort of become unofficial giveaway month on the blog. Let’s say it’s because of my birthday that is coming up shall we? FUN.

Oneflare is a one stop shop for service providers. So for example if I wanted to hire a cleaner {I’m not in the market obviously, I’m VERY happy with the one I have} I go to the website, sign up for a free account and submit my information and job description and it is passed along to verified contractors that service your area. WIN.

They then make contact with you about your job and it goes from there. Sounds good right? Given I wasn’t in the market for any services myself, I gave a go with a friend of mine who was looking for a gardener on the Sunshine Coast and she has now been happily matched with a company that met her expectations in terms of price and requirements. I say again. WIN.

Would YOU like to win a $100 voucher towards services acquired via

Well that’s just what I have on offer folks. Tell me in the comments below what your housekeeping DREAM would be {like me and my childhood I want THAT fantasy}, like on Facebook {essential} and make sure I have your email address. The giveaway will be open for TWO WEEKS so get creative. The entry deemed to be the funniest, most worthy or interesting by ME {or my selected representatives, cough my sister cough} will be the winner!
