Wee Laddie wants an allowance (plus all the back allowance I owe him from when he got it before...ha!). Maybe this'll help me figure out how he can earn some. It's a list of age-appropriate chores.

Wow, that is a pretty good idea.  Kinda takes care of allowance plus gets good behavior in one fell swoop.  Some things I might cut out and/or add but great idea for down the road!

To teach his children how to think properly about money, he gave each of them three jars. Whenever they received an allowance, or money from doing chores, or a gift of money, they had to divide it into thirds: One part to spend, one part to save, and one part to give to others. Simple but so rewarding in many ways ♥
