Lessons from the Grocery Cart: Teach Your Kids to Shop and Save
Once your kids are too big to sit in the grocery cart, they're old enough to experience food shopping as a fun, money-saving tutorial. Here, a home-to-market-and-back-again guide to super savings
Start with something kids like to do anyway: go deep and long into the chill and assess what you already have, what’s beyond its use-by date, and what has gone bad. Anywhere from a quarter to a third of lost grocery money goes to wasted food. If you can’t make it through that bin of berries before they go blech, buy smaller or plan to eat faster to save.
