I have given the kids an opportunity to earn money by looking for the best prices on school supplies.
We started by making a list of stores and companies from whom we can buy what we need:
Next, the kids are taking their lists and finding out how much each item costs at each store to find the best prices. Then, we'll make a list for each store or see if one store will have the best deal for everything.
I figure, we save money, and the kids learn how to comparison shop.

It's 130am and I've just gotten into bed, gotten comfortable, and I realized that I've forgotten to start the dishwasher. I mean, I had a hockey game at 10 (won 5-0) and now I'm tired and just want to go to sleep. And I'm lamenting the fact that I have to get out of bed to go turn it on. I'm just so comfortable in my great big bed next to my beautiful wife. Who would want to leave that?
Then, I realize that, boo hoo, I have to walk 30 feet and down some stairs to press a button and the magic machine makes all of the dishes clean. Woa is me.
