A while back, I was asked to participate in a review of the online tool called My Job Chart. Marketing with Moms was offering a $10 gift card to anyone who participated and I figured we could use a new tool to keep our crazy household on track, plus, we love Target.
Well, anyone who is familiar with our family knows that plans often don’t work out. I want to thank MWM because I got the gift card right away. However we just didn’t find the time or find that the job chart program was going to work for us.
My youngest could care less about doing chores or the rewards that can come with doing them. She did not get excited about this new tool at any point. Despite the fact that she can have her own photo attached to her tasks in our account, she didn’t care. She’s a camera hound, so this surprised me some. But keep reading to see our Target shopping trip photos.
My oldest thinks she too good for this kind of stuff and to be honest, getting her to do something on a schedule is like pulling teeth. She’ll take the trash out when asked, but other than that, forget about it.
So, let me just list some of the benefits of the program that I was hopeful about even though we didn’t get to use them.
As the mom(or dad) you get a log in to the entire account and can set up profiles for everyone in the household. I could see this being used a group or work account as well.
Each profile (your kids, hubby, ect) get their own login and can update the tasks as they get done. This seems good becaus they can update their own jobs while you aren’t there to do it. Lets say you are at work, you’ll get an email when they update their session.
Each profile gets their own photo. You can assign whatever points value you want for each task and you decide what rewards each person gets for tasks done.
There are video tutorials that help you figure out how to use each tool.
Here’s the best part. It’s FREE!
So, while we didn’t get much use out of the My Job Chart site, I think most other people could. It did provide a fun shopping trip for my daughter and I and I have funny photos to prove it. So, once again, thanks to Marketing with Moms for the gift card.
