To commemorate my blog's 1-year anniversary this past summer (July) AND the 1-year anniversary of my Chore Charts & Kid Bucks system post (November), I am doing a...


I am offering 3 Chore Charts & Kid Bucks sets in PDF for FREE!! This is a $45 value!! [If you have more than 3 children, I'll give you 50% off additional kits in the same family.]

You will get 3 Chore Charts, 6 rotating Chore Cards (3 morning, 3 evening), 3 AM/PM Lists, one Kid Buck Menu, one Allowance Chart, and one page of each denomination of Kid Bucks -- all in PDF format -- along with simple instructions for you to print, laminate, and assemble them. Everything is personalized to your specifications!

If you'd prefer that I assemble them at my end, I'll give you the $15 per child I usually charge for PDF versions as a credit towards the assembled versions, which means you would get my Chore Charts & Kid Bucks system for $10 for each child (plus $10 total shipping) ~ that's still a great deal at 60% off the usual $25 per child price!

  1. Oooh! First commenter never wins! :( Oh well. I'm trying anyway!

    My most recent favorite is how to deal with a stinky washer. I have to deal with that all the time!

  2. I love give aways!! I also liked how to deal with a stinky washer, but I liked the 56 meal ideas. I'm always looking for something new for my kids.

  3. I like all the household cleaning advice and solutions you give on your blog. I especially like the 56 meal list, since according to my husband I keep making the same 3 dishes OVER and OVER again LOL. Your blog is great, thanks for all the cool info.

  4. Even as a guy, I enjoy the advice.

    My favorite post is the one that you said you're giving away free chore charts and kids bucks. That's my favorite. Yep, definately!

  5. I liked the 56 meal ideas, since that sparked the idea to write down all the things my family eats. I sorted out what aren't big hits and still have a great list. Lots of stuff I forgot about.

    I also really liked the link to the 10 Benefits of Meal Planning.

    I so need your chore charts. Sooooo need them. :)

  6. I blogged about it. :)

  7. I LOVE your chore charts, but my favorite post is about meal planning. I've been trying to create my own plan, but haven't been very successful. I would love to see your list of 56 meals. Crossing my fingers for the give away!:)

  8. I blogged about the give away on!

  9. I love your blog! My favorite post was the Chemical-Free Weed Killer, such an awesome tip! I have also been eyeing your chore charts for many months!!
