Get Help in Looking After Your Kids Without Denting Your Budget!!

Posted on February 17, 2009. Filed under: Hiring Babysitters | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Looking after a small child is full-time work in itself. When it comes to handling twins single handedly, it could become too exhausting for women who also have to do the regular household chores and kitchen work. All this stress adds to one’s daily burden till it makes you wish you could contact Mary Poppins. As a mother, you will want to hire a nanny who will love and care for your children as you would, apart from being extremely patient while dealing with their tantrums. The selection of such a nanny might require you to search extensively, sift through countless references and recommendations, conduct numerous interviews, look for the most affordable quote and settle on someone who would fit your bill perfectly. All these activities would, however, require you to invest a lot of time, effort and even money, making the entire experience harrowing, to say the least.

You could, however, simplify the search process with the help of the MiNeeds site. On MiNeeds, all you have to do is post your requirement on the site’s notice board. The rest of the dirty job of contacting professionals and getting quotes and references will be done by MiNeeds. All you need to do is put in a little effort in selecting from the professionals who have shown an interest in your work and submitted their proposals. The net result of using MiNeeds is that you save on the three precious commodities: time, effort and money. This is the route the customer in Kirkland, Washington, followed when she wanted to hire the services of a nanny for her twins. The moment she posted her requirements, MiNeeds contacted the local professionals and prompted them to submit their estimates. Within a few days, she had received three bids, which gave her the option to select the one who best met her criteria.

You can also simplify your search for professionals the next time you want to hire the services of a babysitter or nanny. You could either scan through the list of Seattle Nanny and Babysitter Services or simply post your needs and wait for the bids to pour in!!

Babysitters at Your Fingertips

Posted on September 18, 2008. Filed under: Hiring Babysitters | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Finding a babysitter can sometimes be a difficult task, especially when it becomes a last minute search. Opportunities sometimes arise that require you, the parent, to react quickly and find someone reliable to look after your little ones. And when you’ve exhausted every option, called every neighborhood high school teenager, and asked every nearby relative within a fifty mile radius, only to find out you are out of luck as you start to see your plans slipping away from you. It’s times like these where you wish there was just an abundance of babysitters on call ready to help you on a day or two’s notice.

Well, such a place does exist. MiNeeds is an on-line community that allows customers to post any service they need, and brings all professionals who provide these services to the customer, inviting them to bid for the chance to perform the services. Here a Tacoma customer was looking for a babysitter on only a few days notice. They posted their need and instantly all the babysitting providers were notified and could submit a proposal to try and meet the customer’s needs. Nine professionals chose to bid, without any effort on the customer’s part. The customer was able to save time, aggravation and disappointment by having access to such a database of local providers who could offer them the services they needed. And with each bid proposal, they were able to consider cost and could initiate contact with each professional to talk about qualifications, references, and anything else that a parent would like to know about who they would be leaving their child with. This creates a peace of mind that is more valuable than money.

Don’t let your lack of on-hand babysitters prevent you from going on that date, or make that important apointment. You can always see if any of these Seatte babysitters are close enough to help you out. Or make it easy on yourself, and just post your need right now and get them to contact you instead.

Find Daycare Services Without the Commitment

Posted on August 20, 2008. Filed under: Hiring Babysitters | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Going back to work with little ones still in the house is a tough chore, especially for the main caregiver. Not only do you have to decide who to get to watch your bundles of joy, but there is so much to consider in making the ultimate decision. How much it will cost, how trusting the person you choose is, and the worry that whoever you select will be good enough are the thoughts that fill your head. Most of the time it never seems to be cost effective to go back to work, especially with the “contracts” you have to enter for most daycare centers nowadays. So you end up spending your time trying to balance work and staying home, and trying not to tear you hair out in the process.

So where do you turn to? Follow the lead of this Tacoma customer who was looking for a childcare provider for a few hours a week. She decided to go back to work from her home office and needed someone for a few hours on Tuesdays so she could get some work done. She turned to MiNeeds, which is a website where customers can list services they need fulfilled and let professional providers submit a competitive bid to perform these services. She posted her need, and all of the providers who offer child care services were alerted. From there, each provider had the choice to bid on this need at a reasonable price. When all was said and done, the customer received a total of eight bids from local providers, giving her a decent option to choose from. And with MiNeeds, there are no contracts that you must sign your life away to, paying a specified amount whether their services are used or not. And the customer ended up with a pool of applicants that were looking for her business, allowing her to schedule interviews and other important credentialing at her pace with no rush.

This customer was able to save money on daycare, being able to go back to work without handing her paycheck right over to a daycare service. She was also able to enjoy one of MiNeeds’ greatest features, a one stop shop where you can find professionals that meet your, all while saving you time, money and effort. Are you looking for Seattle babysitting services so you can get back into the workforce? Give MiNeeds a try. Post that need and get the word out tonight, and you can get back bringing home a little bacon before you know it.
