It's simple really. If I feel like someone is being particularly sassy, rude or disrespectful, they get to draw a slip out of the job jar. This job is done immediately unless it is the go to bed early job which no one likes. I included some things that just aren't very enjoyable like cleaning up other people's spaces. I included chores that I try to do every couple of months and some that get done more often.
Here are the jobs that are presently in our jar.
-Clean siblings bathroom. This includes the toilet, sink, countertops and emptying the trash.
-Vacuum the living room, kitchen rug and cubby room rug.
-Dust the living room, dining room, entryway, and piano room.
-Dust your room and your sibling’s room.
-Sweep (with a broom) all of the tile in the hallways, entryway, kitchen and cubby room.
-Clean mom’s bathroom. This includes the toilet, sink, countertop and emptying the trash.
-Clean dad’s bathroom. This includes the toilet, sink, countertop and emptying the trash.

What you will need:
scrapbook paper: optional
Open a word document or get out a piece of paper. Type or write down the jobs. Cut into strips. Then make a cute little lable for your jar. I think it makes it look happier for the doom and gloom that awaits inside. Put your label on your jar, insert your jobs. And there you have it. Next time a kid is sassy you have an easy way to handle it.
One of my children has done lots of these jobs where the other two haven't done quiet as many...
