It’s 11pm. You should be in bed. But you’re not. You’re wide awake. Making do-to lists, sorting school lunches, folding the laundry, cleaning up from dinner, wiping pen off the couch cushions (again).
Where’s the cleaning fairy when you need her?
She’s literally only a phone call away. And she doesn’t just clean – she does it ALL!
We’ve recently uncovered a better way to find that work/life balance, to rid yourself of chores and mum guilt when you don’t get everything done, and to actually enjoy a bit of downtime either for yourself or with your family.
Hire a moncierge.
A mon-ce -what??
No, we didn’t just make this word up. It’s a real thing! A moncierge is literally a real-life fairy godmother for busy families and she’s about to make ALL the household chores DISAPPEAR. Poof.
Not. Even. Joking.
Allow us to explain.
A moncierge – your best solution to getting in-home help from ONE assistant
A moncierge is a family assistant you can hire to do ALL the things you don’t have time to do. Things like prepare dinner, clean the house, drop the kids off, take them to karate, fold the washing, walk the dog – anything!
She’s a housekeeping nanny whenever you need her and at an affordable rate too!
We’ve got all the deets on how to hook yourself up your very own (tailor matched) assistant to change your world this year PLUS a chance to WIN an annual mtime membership ($149) PLUS 4 weeks’ of a personally paired moncierge!

Find a nanny who does it ALL
mtime is designed to give us parents our time back, to alleviate the mental load and to help us enjoy our families more. It’s such an ingenious concept too! Not only are you hiring a nanny, but also a housekeeper, chef, personal assistant, and even chauffeur – all in one.
Your moncierge works to your own personalised household manual so they do things the way you like. Perhaps you have a no-snacks-after-4pm-rule or like your towels rolled, not folded. #whateverfloatsyourboat. Your moncierge’s got it all under control.
Your Moncierge seamlessly changes between whatever tasks you need them to focus on – like a pair of spare hands wherever you need them, for however long you need!
mtime’s Moncierges take care of:
- Light housekeeping – making beds, washing dishes, vacuuming etc.
- Errands and chores – laundry to ironing to watering the plants
- Cooking and meal prep – grabbing the groceries to having a full dinner ready for you when you get home
- Childcare – babies to teenagers, a responsible caring adult for all minding needs
- Transport – you can ask for your moncierge to have a car available if you know school drop/pick ups, buying groceries will be on your task list

INSIDER TIP: Unsure how much time you need, or what kind of household support would work best for you and your family? Take this quiz to get you underway.
Find the right nanny with mtime
All moncierges have at least two years of experience managing a household and looking after children with up-to-date working with children checks, police checks, and glowing recommendations. They are also qualified first aiders and are trained in both food and child safety protocols.
There are also no lock-in contracts, no costs to cancel and you get a 2-session trial to see if this service is the right fit for you. You can also upgrade your hours any time you like. Plus, your family assistant is available anytime between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday!
Get in an early gym workout, stay late for a work meeting, and know that your moncierge has everything covered at home.
Best of all, come home to a meal cooked, a clean house, and nothing to do except to unwind and enjoy quality time with your family.
We only recently discovered mTime Moncierge and honestly, WHERE HAVE THEY BEEN ALL MY LIFE?
Long term or short term
Another great thing about mtime is that there is no lock-in contract. Sometimes life gets even busier and we simply cannot cope without extra help. For example, if you or your partner becomes unexpectedly sick or injured, if one of you has to go away.
Many of us can no longer rely on relatives to lend a helping hand with the constant COVID changes, especially if they are overseas or out of state. Having a moncierge close-by can be a literal lifesaver.
A perfect present for new mums
How handy would this be if you have a newborn who refuses to de-cling from your chest? Someone to cook and clean so you can focus 100% on baby and not on the mountains of housework piling up?
Or even as a special gift to a new mum-to-be? mtime can organise a moncierge as a gift too! #bestgiftever!
Nannies for working mums
Of course, it’s not just new mums who could use a hand. Seasoned mums need it too, especially if they’re trying to juggle a career and children.
Which, let’s admit, is a pretty insane juggle! Even when the kids are in bed, you’re most likely trying to catch up on the things that got away from you during the day. And then there’s the mum guilt harassing you in the background, reminding you that you didn’t make it to the gym, that you had to cut reading time short (again), and that you forgot to RSVP to a birthday party this weekend.
This is why we love mtime and their moncierges.
It’s a smarter way to parent. You can pass on the chores and focus on what matters. When you are busy with work or doing your own thing, you can have total peace of mind knowing the kids are in excellent hands.
Plus, with mtime, there’s no need to have both a nanny cost of $25 per hour and a housekeeper cost of $35 per hour and still have so much left to do. mtime takes care of it all for a flat fee of $40 per hour.
