My 1 yr old helps me as I go. For instance if I'm mopping the floor, i give her a wet one and she'll get on her hands & knees and wipe the crayon mess from the floor. Also when she takes her jacket off, she knows not to leave it on he ground. She can't reach her hook so she hands it to me. She often picks up her shoes & puts it in her wardrobe. When she's done with her Juice or yoghurt she knows to take the container to the rubbish bin. Sometimes she throws the spoon in as well. But we are getting her to throw it in the sink those other times.
When she's old enough I'll start her on weekly pocket money. I think saving it for herself & for charity is a brilliant idea. I'll def be looking to do something similar
