I was asked to do the topic getting kids to do chores without allowance involved, so here it is. I have two older kids who don't get an allowance. When they lose a tooth, the tooth fairy gives them $5 - 10 each time.
I have not really thought about chores with an allowance as our kids are almost 7 and almost 8 years old. They don't really have chores persay, they put their dirty clothes in their laundry hamper they have in their rooms. They put their bookbags for school by the door before bedtime. Otherwise, they don't really have chores to do yet.
We have change we save for vacation(s), but it's only for change not bills. We don't bother to count it until we have time frame set aside for when we want to do a family vacation, usually to an amusement park, not the beach or anything big as we don't have any near by.
