Get your kids to help with household chores.

by Keli

Get your kids to help with regular household chores and offer them commission for helping. Not only will they love the chance at making some extra cash but it helps keep your to-do list a little smaller.

Make sure it's something that they have to work at a little bit and it all depends on their age. My daughter is 8 and her weekly chores to get her weekly commission include gathering all of the trash and taking the bags out, keeping her sink clean, and helping unload the dishwasher.

Just these few things can help make your life a little easier when it comes to the rest of the house cleaning.
