It is time for Clayton to start earning his keep around here. He is always wanting us to buy him stuff wherever we go and doesn't understand why he can't have something every time we step foot in Target or Walmart. So, he is going to start earning an allowance and learning about saving, tithing, and spending money. Starting this week, he is going to be doing dishes, vacuuming, cleaning his bathroom, taking out the trash, and a few other chores. He will earn six dollars at the end of the month if he completes all of his chores. Every year he will get a raise to match his age. He will still be required to do his normal things to help out around the house and those things will not be a part of his earnings.
