Each of mine pay £100 a month. I cook for them, usually, but they do their own washing and cleaning. They also are expected to help around the house and garden. My youngest doesnt pay as yet, as he has no earnings, but he is on a work trial this week, and knows that he will pay digs as soon as he is paid.
I pay all their mobile bills, but expect them to buy their own toiletries if they dont want to use the ones I buy.
I wouldnt dream of tidying or cleaning their rooms, and they know to leave mine alone. We all need our own space and privacy. (Though my daughter is good at “borrowing” my clothes!)
