We started a new chore chart with our son...first, we asked for his input on what he should be responsible for.  We got out the label maker, & Michael helped to spell out his chores (fun sounding out words with a 5 yr. old), then we hung it on our frig.  Next, we found these cute magnetic containers at WalMart, and labeled them as well.  For completing his chores each week, he receives 3 tickets:  one for savings, one for charity, & one for spending.  Each ticket = one dollar.  The spending container has money in it at the moment from a birthday card he received!  Now, when he wants to purchase something, he needs to consult his spending container, not Mom or Dad. It's been working really well so far!!  :)
