We all know this: what works for one family doesn't work for another. Such is the case with motivation systems, star charts, and other ways of tracking and rewarding chores.
Kelly Wickham (Mocha Momma) shared her friend's gorgeous system that solves three problems at the same time.

- It gives them a way to "check off" tasks as they finish them
- It makes a perfectly clear connection between the completion of chores and the reward (or earnings, as they should more accurately be called)
Be sure to read Kelly's post detailing this system and why it's working — there's much more to this story.
