  • i make two separate list. one showing the earnings and the other expenses. although i did it to saw my hubby we couldn't afford to pay our bills. i would put a line down the middle. divide up yours and do his on a separate paper with the same listing as yours. then get a third paper and list the chores you do and on the other side what a house keeper etc would charge. then make one last one that show the earnings the spending showing both side with adding the cost or savings for not hiring a house keeper. it's easier if i could show you but i can't do have it anymore.
