Last week I shared the 6 chores I refuse to pay my kids to do because, by golly, they live here too. That’s not to say I’m running some kind of child sweat shop ’round these parts, but rather, I simply believe that basic everyday chores should be done by each and every person living under a shared roof.
But for every chore I won’t pay for, there are least twice as many that I will gladly pay for, and probably more handsomely than Suze Orman would recommend. When deciding which chores are worth cash money, I rely on this totally scientific formula:
1. Is the chore physical?
2. Am I willing to do the chore myself?
3. Will I have to redo this physical chore that I’m not willing to do myself the first time?
If the answers to these questions are yes, no, and no respectively, then it’s a job willing to pay for.
