Ways for Kids To Earn Money Around the House
If your kids are like mine, they love to have a little cash on hand. While we do have give our children a weekly allowance (see Our Allowance System), they are often looking for ways to earn more money. My youngest enjoys a few extra dollars to buy Lego sets or, more often, candy. My daughter has her eyes on saving for big-ticket items, like a nice camera.
My problem has always been that, while I know there are lots of extra jobs that need done around the house, I can never think of them when the kids seem to want them. I finally took the time to come up with a system that I wish I had thought of years ago: our Money Makers file.
