Over here, we’ve been busy house hunting and settling into a new community. I would like to start volunteering more actively again, but my husband’s work schedule is very up in the air. Since we’re buying a house, it would also be great if I could work a few more hours a week.
My husband reminded me that we have a Sittercity subscription–and it is easy and inexpensive to add another zip code. Once I do, I can locate, interview, and run a background check on suitable babysitting candidates. Sittercity allows me to sort sitters by their qualifications, calculate a fair rate, and view stored background checks or run my own. They also have lots of great checklists and articles about hiring a babysitter.
This service is so helpful, I wanted to share it with you again–read our full review of Sittercity.
When you think about how valuable your time is, you’ll find that Sittercity is more than worth the subscription fee—and now Mamanista! readers can get 10% off. Looking for a babysitter? Sign-up to find the perfect sitter today at Sittercity.com and use code MNISTA to save!
