Goal Money Earned!

I’m a little late posting this, but it was a huge event to the kids, so I didn’t want to leave it out. For a month the kids have been doing their jobs around the house. Each time they do a job they get a star and after they get 5 stars they get paid. They tithe some, save some (in a piggy bank for disney world), and put some in their spending jar. Once Anne’s spending jar reaches a goal of 10 dollars and Joel’s reaches 5 dollars we make a huge event out of it and go to the toy aisle and they get to pick out whatever toys they can buy for that amount. I know it’s a little complicated of a system, but it works for us and the kids are actually doing their jobs without complaint the majority of the time. They’re excited to put their stars on the chart and revel in counting the money in their jars. About 2 weeks ago they met their first goal and they got to pick out their first prizes!
