I got to thinking about this yesterday while I was sitting in my room being neglected by my own flesh and blood. What about renting out a room in my house but charging a very low rent which would be basically they cover their own food and a small portion of utilities. Say 1/5th of the utility bills. In exchange for that they would have to do a whole lot of cleaning around the house. In the beginning it would be a bigger job but once the bigger job was done it would be just basic cleaning around the house. Helping with keeping the kitchen clean, washing floors, helping me with laundry and folding, vacuuming. I really dont care if its a man or a woman but this would be someone we really would have to vet well. I wouldnt put much of this in the ad itself. I think a college kid would do well because we live in a college town and I imagine we have some kids who cant afford to live in the dorms. For about 200 or so a month, maybe a bit more depending on what they eat, they could have a place to live but they would have to take care of me. Like I told Tony, once we got the three rooms empty, we could rent out all three of them and make some fairly good money each month. Buck pays 100 a week for his place and its a shared kitchen and shared bath. I am really going to have to sell this one on Tony though. The one good point is it doesnt have us paying anything out. That has been his stopping point on allowing me to hire someone to come in and hire someone to help clean.
