Intermediate Money Word Problems
Tips for Saving Money at the Grocery Store - Groceries can become a huge monthly expense if you have children of your own. Many parents do not teach their kids the value of money, and they do not have a concept that one works hard to earn money. If you have kids around and you want to save on your grocery shopping, you give your kids the responsibility to save money. By giving your kids this responsibility, you reduce the chances of overspending as kids love it when parents trust them with responsibility. To help your kids efficiently shop at a grocery store, you can provide them some tips to save money on grocery shopping. No matter what happens, always stick to the list. Teach them to compare product prices and ask them to buy the cheaper one. Do not buy toiletries from a grocery store. Always look for products on the shelf that is below the one that is just at your line of sight. These worksheets and lessons are geared towards students that are familiar with word problems.
