My husband and I have lived without a maid often, mostly because I would rather that, than have a maid who works badly. And because when I have a good maid, I happily give her long leave whenever she needs it. I’d rather have one person work for me permanently, than keep switching maids each year.
The times without a maid have always been a struggle for me, until recently. We made a lot of changes at home, and I reorganised my workflow, trying different ways, until I found something that works.
So, here’s 8 tips to help you live comfortably without a maid.

Making a decision to buy a new floor cleaning robot
Our old Eureka Forbes floor cleaning robot started to fall apart, and couldn’t be repaired. We invested in it years ago, but it took us a while to reorganise our home for it. So, we only started to really use it 6 months before it died.
At this time, Eureka Forbes did not have another model on sale – so it was the Roomba or Milagrow. Both brands had models in a range of budgets, with wet and dry options, but the Milagrow had a budget friendly model, plus it had a customer service centre in Mumbai.
