My own marble jar #totalbettysociety

A few months back I filled you in on how I rewarded my two older kids (age 5 and 23 months) with marbles in a jar for good behavior to earn a reward once their marble jars were full. Read about it here.  Until recently I had a hard time completing or procrastinating on tasks I needed to fulfill.

Here is a list of what I need to improve on give myself marbles for already:

-Calling or e-mailing people back

-Setting up appointments or calling people

-Reading my Bible daily

-complete steps towards my teacher recertification (currently working on CPR/First Aid/AED trainings online).

– balancing the check book daily

-planning my 23 month old son’s 2 year old Birthday party at the end of this month YIKES!

Things I should give myself a marble for and work on but haven’t yet:

-eating healthier


My reward that I am working towards is any item of jewelry from Total Betty Society. When you sign up to become a member with them you automatically get a $10 credit to use towards your first purchase. I still have my credit and you can use it on top of discounts. I get discount notifications by e-mail. So I am thrilled and can’t wait to shop (especially for a necklace).

I also read my bible more, know where we are financially speaking and I just feel good all around. I just fill happier, more fulfilled and accomplished.  Who knew that what I implement with my children could give the same affect with me. I encourage you to think of ways of rewarding yourself for actions or behaviors you dislike or have a hard time completing.

What do you think?

    I need to do this, too. I need motivation for house cleaning and eating better.

      Oh, what’s your referral link for total Betty? I’d like to sign up but give you credit.

      I would say go for it Becky. As for referral I am still trying to log back into my TBS account to e-mail you an invite, so far no luck on the iPhone. I will need to get to a desktop and try it. I had this issue in the past trying to login from iPhone but can otherwise elsewhere 🙂 I will get a marble for this too as I need to make myself remember to do this lol

        You should Valerie, this is quite a splurge for me haha!

    I have thought about doing this sort of thing for myself but I’m just not sure what to “reward” myself with!! I guess it needs to be something I wouldn’t normally allow myself to buy…a splurge….Hmm, now I’m gonna go think on this! 😀

    This is such a good idea. I must do it for my own girl when she is a little older.

    Hope your week is going well. Ada. =)

    Don’t beat yourself up too much – life happens but if your intentions are good you are definitely on the right track!

    I love the idea of a visible way of reminding yourself what you’ve accomplished! i’m a very word-oriented person so I always use lists and I love seeing the checkmarks as I get stuff done.

    I really like the marble idea!! It seems like such a good visual motivator!!

  • Darcy April 14, 2014 at 1:37 am

    That is a great way to hold yourself accountable!
