Hi everyone. I'm a student doing a
dissertation about the rise of time saving
services such as domestic cleaners and
lifestyle managment services, and I was just
wondering if there are any women out there
who use them, or would use them and why? Or
if theres anyone out there who just simply
does not have time, I would like to know
why?,maybe you feel pressured from work or
even daily life. Or maybe you just enjoy the
finer things in life and don't see any reason
for cleaning or perfoming menial tasks
yourself. Whatever the reason, I would love
to know. Thanks everyone.

Not being a woman I just re-arrange the dust once a week.

What is a lifestyle manager?
Should one have one?

It's someone that rich men who don't have wives (or rich women who wish they had wives) employ to sort their lives out.

I'm not so sure, TLMJJ. If a lifestyle manager can sort a mans life out in the way he wants it sorted then this must be preferable to a wife who sorts out a husbands life in the way she wants it.
Do they cost less than £30k a year?

Not if you want to sleep with them as well! ;-)

In the building where I live somebody started a service like this: from going to the dry cleaners for you to catering a dinner party to breakfast in bed etc etc

I deliberately organised my career and life in such a way that I do not need lifestyle managers and concierge services. People forget that it often takes more energy and worry to manage these kind of services than actually doing it yourself.
