DAY 2: SUPERMARKET CHALLENGE

Going to the supermarket with parents sounds boring, right?  What if you could influence the shopping and make money out of it?  What if you could get parents/guardians to agree to give you money when they shop – sounds great, right?

Next time, before they go to the supermarket, you ask what things they intend buying for you – things like cereal, snacks, yoghurt or your favourite biscuits – and you agree with them that if they are willing to spend what they always spend on these things, how about next time you choose and agree on something you’d rather they buy that costs less (like a different cereal or biscuits) but you get to keep the difference in price?
