5 Apps to Help Keep Track of Your Kid’s Allowance

Do you struggle like myself with keeping up with your kid’s allowance? While we have the best intentions when it comes to chores and paying allowance and what not, it just wasn’t happening.

A few months ago, we setup a new system for our household which includes family meetings and an allowance schedule.  While we figured out a process, we kept getting hung up on the money thing. Our kids would never have their money with them when they wanted to buy something, or we would forget to pay allowance. It became a headache until we started using an app to keep track of it all.

Allowance Apps

Here is a round up of 5 great allowance apps that can help you (and your child) manage allowance.
