So far the first week has been great, he has been very excited about it and as soon as I tell him to come do his job he comes running! We decided on $3 a week and then I divided that by 7 days so that he rewarded every day instead of having to wait until the very end of the week.
I then went and got 3 small mason jars at the dollar store and wrote on them Give, Save, Spend. We put 10% of his commissions in the give jar, 40% in the save jar, and 50% in the spend jar. He is so excited about taking his give money to church tomorrow! We will also put his save money in his piggy bank tomorrow, and then on Monday when Randy is home we will go to the store and see if he wants to spend his spend money. We have decided to start him off young at teaching him how to handle his money. While we will still buy him things, we will not buy everything. If there is something he really wants, he will have to save for it etc.
Here's hoping that he doesn't put us in the poor house!
So excited about putting his money in!
If you look closely, you can see give written on the jar!
