The above quote inspired me to open a new thread. I also pay for a Putzfrau and feel like putting an ad to sell something for even 50 CHF is a waste of time. At the same time, I don’t like to throw stuff away if I know someone could use it. So I’d like to know how you deal with it? I have some stuff at home that is just clutter (old games, dvd movies, books, electronics), but just making an ad and dealing with questions from potential buyers (or takers) seems dreadful. I know some people put this stuff out to take for free, but I’m afraid someone would mind or nobody would take it.
And a side question: how do you deal with chores that you cannot outsource? For example, my gf is very messy, she eventually fills every available space with her stuff. Obviously, a Putzfrau can’t know where to put this stuff or what to throw away. Gf doesn’t seem to bother, but I’m bothered a lot. She’s tired after work but I am too, so I won’t organize her stuff for her.
