10 Tips on How to Survive Without a Maid in Karachi

2

Sounds impossible! But it is practical.

I only write what I experience and this is something that I did go through for a couple of months.

Here are 10 tips to help you survive without a maid:-
1. Mentally prepare yourself. The mind controls your body, yes I can do it and I will do it. For the first time I will be the boss of the house, from the kitchen to the bathroom everything will be under my control.

2. Remember, you are doing your own work. This is your house, your kids your husband this is your work. You don’t owe anything to anybody and no one owns anything to you.

3. Time management is the key.

4. Maintenance is essential. Prevent the clutter from spreading. Trust me it will be so much easier.

5. Early to bed and early to rise makes a woman healthy, beautiful and wise.

6. Always always cook the first thing in the morning. Husband and children can ignore mess but not a hungry stomach. My lunch was always cooked by 11:30 am.

7. Buy the latest design mops and broom, cleaning will be so much easy. Invest in good cleaning equipments.

8. Folding clothes, dusting and decluttering can be done even while playing with children.

9. Put kids to sleep at 8 no matter what.

10. Last and most important. Don’t fret, take it easy and give time to your own body, comb your hair put on that makeup and smile at your hubby.

I guarantee one thing. Doing each and everything on your own makes you aware of even the tiniest details of the house and your status as the woman of the house is highly praised and raised.

  1. Sister,, i hear u. I recently moved to karachi, from my mom’s protective nest in to this great metropolitan jungle thats karachi. I was not prepared to face the maids, i was warned before of the vicious and devious maids, but i was never expecting it to be this bad, no matter how clear i make the work agreement , there will always be one chore im not paying them enough for, and if i don’t pay that extra money (that was previously not mentioned by them before starting work) they r leaving. Its nerve wrecking, trying to maintain your cool in the face of a lying person who accuses you of being an evil penny pincher. Im seriously considering just getting rid of all domestic help and do it all myself. Thanks for a great article, it was a great motivation for me.

      HiAmal,

      I totally agree with you, that being totally self-sufficient is the best thing. Zero dependency on others is definitely the best policy.
      These days my maid is also giving me trouble, but guess what its not really bothering me as I am managing it very easily, the only trick behind it is, “Clean up as soon as you are done, be it dishes, clothes scattered or other stuff. Just dont let it pile up!
      Im glad you found the post helpful 🙂
