We’ve created a short list of job-related items that you can consider providing for your helper. Items will vary from house to house, depending on your helper’s duties and your personal management style, but we hope it gives you a head start in preparing for your helper’s arrival.

If you haven’t purchased these items before she arrives, don’t worry! You can always go shopping with her. In fact, she may have insights into what has worked well for her in the past. So whether you choose to prepare ahead of time or do the buying along with your helper, it’s a win/win either way!
