We use commission charts for our children instead of "chore charts". My husband and I both work full time jobs, mine with an hour daily commute and have 3 children (12, 6, and 1). The commission charts are hung on the refrigerator, when the kids get home from school (12 & 6) they know to do their homework and complete their tasks in order to get paid their weekly commissions. This includes unloading the dishwasher, setting the table & having it ready for dinner, getting clothes ready for the next day. Every 2 weeks, I do a meal plan to get to the grocery store quickly & efficiently, so I can prepare freezer meals in advance so that it is not hectic of an evening - pop a meal in the oven and supper & chores are done!
