A friend of mine put together a chore chart where her kids earn mom and dad money to spend on certain items. I loved the idea!! I wasn't sure if it would work with our Princess', but thought I'd give it a try anyways. WOW!! With a little tweeking, it is working GREAT!! For us, instead of using money, we use stickers. I'm still making up the reward process, but for now Princess V is getting a chocolate because she got every sticker yesterday. Princess V gets up in the morning and immediately wants to get all her chores done. Princess C is still working on the concept, but she loves getting the stickers.
Here's a link to my friends blog where I got the idea
