Why Our Kids Plan, Budget For, and Cook Our Meals
How We Solved the "What's for Dinner" Problem As you can imagine, mealtime for a family of eight is a little demanding. Keep in mind, everyone eats all meals at home A few years ago, my husband came up with a rotating chore schedule for our kids that has worked out great. It's a five-day system for the five older children: How the "Kitchen" Chore Day Works Here's how the Kitchen Chore Day works and how this rotating schedule helps with menu planning: On "Kitchen" day, the child is responsible for making breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cleaning up. Learning how to meal plan is a great advantage to have. How to work with a budget and stay within that budget. Teaching your children to be good stewards of their money while they are younger and willing to learn will lead them down the right road to financial freedom when they are older. Have you ever tried any kind of system like this? Do your kids make meals in your home? I'd love to hear! Courtney is a veteran's wife and mother to six very energetic children aging 4-14.
