1. Let’s price shop! Ask an adult to take you to the store and compare prices! One great place to start is the cereal aisle. Look at the name brand cereal and the store brand cereal. If you don’t know how, ask an adult to help you calculate the price per ounce and decide which one is a better deal!
2. Help plan a meal and then go shop for it! Make sure you talk about your budget and how many people you need to feed.
3. Ask an adult if you can donate $5.00 worth of food to your local food bank. See how much food you can find and still stay in budget.
