Cleaning Services


Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had a maid to clean up after us? While having someone in your home to pick up your dirty plates isn’t an option or even desirable, having someone to come into your home to do the “dirty work” can be a godsend. Mopping dirty fl oors and cleaning windows are dreaded tasks that are often reserved for a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Rather than spend another day inside cleaning, hire someone to help you out every week or two. A majority of the larger cleaning services offer fully screened and insured professionals. What’s more, it won’t break the bank, with services starting around $50.

Personal Trainer


So you’ve got a gym membership and now what? All too often, people walk into their gym, jump on the cardio equipment for half an hour, then walk into the weight room scratching their heads. Let’s face it, resistance training is essential. And if you don’t know what you’re doing, you could get hurt. If a personal trainer by your side three days a week isn’t quite in your budget, it might not be a bad idea to hire a trainer for a weight routine refresher every month or so. These services start around $70 an hour. If you’re not a member of a gym but have been meaning to join one, Chicago Athletic Clubs have several neighborhood clubs in the area that boast a great group of personal trainers.


4 Handyman


The door is off its hinge, the paint is chipped in the bathroom, and the outlet in the kitchen hasn’t worked for months! Usually we’re all willing to live with a little imperfection for a while, but when it starts to accumulate and you don’t have the skills (or time) to mend what needs fi xing, it’s time to call a handyman! A good handyman is the general practitioner of home improvements. Anything that falls under the general category of “tool box needed,” a handyman can fi x.


5 Caterer


If you have a big event planned in your home and a bowl of chips accompanied by a few bologna rolls won’t cut it, a caterer could be your saving grace. Much more common and affordable these days, personal caterers tend to casual events such as festive Super Bowl parties, and more refi ned events like formal dinners. Whatever your needs, having a caterer on-site means you won’t have to worry about multiple trips to the grocery store or hours in the kitchen.
