I'm (not) dreaming of a white Christmas!
Most of us have had a good dumping of snow over the last week or so, I don’t know about you, but we got fed up with it rather quickly! After the initial wonder at its ability to make everything look so magical, the grim reality set in.
If you ventured into work, the commute was dreadful. If you worked from home, cabin fever soon set in.
A few days in and the pavements are still icy, the roads are still slippy and the trains are still delayed.
Big sigh, this is not how you want the new year to start. So, why not make life easier in 2018 and live closer to work, just for the working week? Don’t worry, we are not suggesting that you simply purchase yourself a little apartment across the road for work, instead you rent a room – aimed at professional people like you, just for the working week. The benefits are the same as owning your own apartment, except you only pay a very small fraction of the cost!
How does it all work?
We are mondaytofriday.com and we advertise spare rooms available to rent for professionals on a part time basis. Many of the rooms are in London, but there are plenty of properties all over the UK too. By renting a room close to where you work Monday to Friday, you only have to do your commute just once and the rest of the time you could enjoy a leisurely stroll, or a short cycle to work – the choice is yours.
One size doesn’t fit all
There are so many different approaches to renting rooms for the working week that you are sure to find something which works for you. It may be Sunday – Thursday rather than Monday – Friday? You may want to rent all year round, just for a few months or even a few weeks in some cases. There are rooms with en-suites, gardens, fabulous views, cleaners, concierge, gyms and even some with pools! The rooms are in flats, houses, swanky apartments, country cottages and even houseboats. Sometimes the landlord/lady lives there too, sometimes they don’t. More often than not, they too are working hard in the week and you may just share an occasional chat and a cuppa. They are looking for professional people like you to rent their spare room and make them a bit of extra pocket money and you an easier life Mon-Fri.
We’ve helped thousands of people to do this over more than a decade – taking away the stress and cost of the commute and adding in valuable time. It’s a really simple concept, and it works.
Enjoy that stroll to work in the new year!
