I read another thread on paying someone.........so I thought I'd ask my question too! My neighbor (right across the street) is going to feed our dog for us while we're on vacation, she's also agreed to clean our house while we're gone (she works for a cleaning service). How much should we pay her?? I asked her what she'd charge and she said "oh just pay me whatever", so I really have no clue, I've never used a cleaning service before. Taking care of our dog would consist of letting her out of our house in the morning before she goes to work, then before she goes to bed come over and let her back in and feed her, for 7 days. We have a fenced backyard and our dog stays there all day while we're here too---sleeps inside at night. I was thinking $10 a day, maybe $50 to clean the house?? thanks!!
