A smart Australian mother-of-two has revealed her smart pocket money trick that encourages her children to do extra chores.
The woman's hack features a bulletin board that includes a series of & # 39; extra & # 39; odd jobs, from tending to pets, vacuuming and picking up clothes. The payment is between 50 cents and $ 2.
The mother said that her children, aged nine and five, still expected to do unpaid jobs, such as cleaning their rooms and making their beds.
& # 39; Try something new tomorrow, my children can choose to make money if they want and the value of working for your money & # 39 ;, the mother wrote on Facebook.

Her post – which contained more than a thousand likes and numerous responses – came with a series of suggestions for the mother who also asked if others had tried the trick.
& # 39; I do something similar and then compare the dollar for the dollar with what is in the bank. Do this since he was six, & one person wrote.
Another said: & # 39; Good that you do this. They can choose, they see the cold hard money as motivation. & # 39;
& # 39; Absolutely nothing wrong with learning the value of hard work and getting paid as quickly as possible! & # 39; said a third.
& # 39; After all, they are the right generation! Great job cam! & # 39;

A mother revealed how she used the pocket money trick with the Spriggy app
Others also wanted to share their variations on the pocket money trick, revealing how they found a smart way to do the hack on a limited budget.
& # 39; Two-hour Wi-Fi limit, one-hour TV limit, the list goes on … & # 39;
Some said they had adopted a similar concept, but instead of using a pin board, they had an app called & # 39; Spriggy & # 39; used to record chores and transfer money.
& # 39; I have the & # 39; jobs & $ 39 value set, she marks them as soon as they are approved for me and then transfers the earned dollars to her once a week, & # 39; said the mother.
& # 39; She has the choice to put it on her Spriggy debit card or the & # 39; to save & # 39; in a goal. & # 39;
In 2018, the Financial Planning Association (FPA) of Australia revealed that children earn up to $ 40 in spending money per week.
In the report & # 39; Share the Dream: increasing the generation of the invisible money generation & # 39; the average weekly allowance that Australian children receive is categorized.
How does the Spriggy app work?
* The app is a digital wallet with various accounts that are accessible to parents and children.
* First transfer money to Spriggy via a linked debit or bank account. Suppose you want to transfer $ 50, this will end up in the & # 39; Parent Wallet & # 39; account of the app that your child cannot see.
* To make that money available to your child, you must transfer that $ 50 (or a smaller amount) to the & # 39; Pocket Money & # 39; account.
* Either they can transfer it to the & # 39; Spriggy Card & # 39; account where they can spend it (using the card) or to the & # 39; Savings & # 39; account.
The survey among more than 1,000 families showed that children between the ages of four and eight (49 percent) are more likely to get less than $ 10 a week.
Children between the ages of nine and thirteen are likely to receive between $ 5 and $ 19 (55 percent), while 14 to 18 year-olds receive between $ 10 and $ 39.
And one in seven teenagers (14 to 18) earns $ 40 or more each week.
