Just wondering cause I'm talking to some people that didn't even ever have to do any.

I was responsible for feeding and watering the dog, taking out the trash, bringing in wood pellets (40 lbs bags) for the pellet stove, laundry and cleaning my room.

Didn't get allowance for any of it.

Hbu guys? What'd you have to do and how much allowance did you get

Nothing really. Intermittently we'd be asked to load/unload the dishwasher but that was more when we were like 10 years old. And we got $2/week. But that only lasted about 6 months. Other than that, as long as we got good grades our parents would buy us what we needed and give us $10 here and there if we want to the mall or movies or something.

Clean my room/make my bed, set and clear the table before dinner. Mow the lawn occasionally once I was old enough, and shovel the driveway when it snowed. Other than that, not much comes to mind.

wash dishes every once in a while

fold laundry

take out trash

cut grass

other yard work

clean the house when people would come over



that's about it, never got paid for it. Always felt bad for my neighbors, I swear their parents only had kids for them to do chores. They seriously did like 2-3 hours of chores a day.

Clean the house
Dishes
Trash
Clean my room

I split that stuff with my little sister. Never got an allowance.

Mondays were the worst. We'd have to dust stuff and do extra crap. Laughing

None really. I still cleaned my room (sorta) but it wasn't like I was asked to do it.

Pretty much everything that you can think of when I lived with my dad. At my mom's we never did anything though. Laughing

Really whatever I was told to do. Didn't have a set chore list. We were just told to clean up after ourselves. But I guess cutting the grass was one thing that was expected out of me. But I really didn't mind it. Because my dad would give me $20 for doing it. I still do it for him and he still gives me $20 despite me being 28 and living on my own Laughing

I can't believe I forgot raking leaves. Ugh. We had half an acre in town with 20-some trees. I dragged sooooooo many loads of leaves to the road every year. I always hated it.
