Chores Made Simple. I am in love with this chore made simple idea that my friend Debra posted to her Facebook wall. Now, we generally don’t pay for chores at our house.
Chores Made Simple:
It is just part of contributing to our family to do them however if you do pay for chores or if you have a special event or occasion or even surprise company coming to town then this is a FABULOUS idea for kids and teens to make chores simple.
My friend Debra created a chore list by simply writing the chores on post it notes and clipping them to cold hard cash. She put the chores on her fridge with a magnet and announced to the kids – who needs money! Next thing she knew they were frantically cleaning her house for her. The only rule.
You can only take one chore down at a time. The reward. Immediate gratification. The kids were happy, Mom was happy, and the house was happy! Now that is what I call a mom win! Best of all they were going to a festival that weekend so chances are she would be giving them money to spend. Instead with this tactic she got a clean house, and they earned their money!
