Hire A Mermaid for A Party
Let’s be honest, every party would be better off with a mermaid in attendance. Have a fear of women with fishtails? Redirect and rent a bouncy house or spring for a karaoke rental. Better yet? Have all three. Now that would be a party.
Hire a Housecleaner
A one-time pro can clear away the chaos after your epic mermaid/karaoke/bouncy house party—or you can hire someone to come on a recurring basis. Having a paid cleaner come twice a month frees up weekends and keeps major peace in domestic relationships.
Decorate for The Holidays
Want to win the unofficial neighborhood lights competition but don’t know how? Thumbtack will help with that. Hire a pro to string up a masterpiece on your side of the street this year. Or—if you just need help getting a tree in the door and hanging decor in high places—someone is here to help you. Bonus points, you can have them take it all down at the end.
Learn to Play Guitar
Stage a Home
If you’re thinking of selling a home, you can make it look divine with the help of a professional home stager. Having an appealing set-up could seal the deal. Just moved in? Hire a decorator to help you make it home.
And these are only the beginning. Delve into Thumbtack for anything your artistic, academic, creative, home maintenance, physical fitness-minded self can conjure up. Whatever it is, there’s someone on Thumbtack that can help you get it done.
