My son never really cared about having extra money unless he wanted something! “Mom, I need money for —-, can I have it? Depending on what it was, and if it really was a “need” not a “want”, then I would get it for him. Otherwise, he had to come-up with the money himself, that is how the Job Jar was created. I took an empty (& rinsed-out) pickle jar and started filling it with jobs. Each slip of paper had a job that needed to be done, but wasn’t in his normal weekly chore list, and the amount you got for completing the task. Some examples were: cleaning the grill, organizing garage equipment, spreading mulch, washing & vacuuming the car, and cooking dinner. Each chore was worth between $1-$5 dollars, and if it was cleaning the yucky grill-negotiable!!
Okay-it worked for me so, maybe it will work for you too. Let’s tell others your great tip’s on earning.
