A MUM has shared her clever token system to encourage her kids to do chores, and other parents can’t wait to try it.
Taking to the Facebook group, Extreme Couponing & Bargains, the woman shared snaps of her clever set-up.

The mum had pinned a list of chores to the wall, with each one of the jobs worth a certain amount of tokens.
The rewards range from two tokens for tidying the sofa, to 10 tokens for completing all of their schoolwork.
The kids could then redeem their tokens at the tuck shop with a packet of crisps coming in at 10 tokens and a chocolate bar at 15.
And if her kids completed all of the tasks by 3pm they would be rewarded with an hour’s worth of Fortnite.

Captioning her post, she wrote: “Did this the other day with my children.
“Didn’t cost me a penny and worked an absolute treat.
“Now they keep asking me when I’m going to do another chore day ? thought I’d share in case any other parents want to give it a try.”
Fellow parents loved the idea, applauding her ‘genius’ efforts in the comments.
One wrote: “Great idea wish I had this when my kids were little but can use for my grand babies.”
“Wonder if this would work for the hubby too?!” joked another, while a third added, “I think this is a brilliant idea.”
