I have given the kids an opportunity to earn money by looking for the best prices on school supplies.
We started by making a list of stores and companies from whom we can buy what we need:
Next, the kids are taking their lists and finding out how much each item costs at each store to find the best prices. Then, we'll make a list for each store or see if one store will have the best deal for everything.
I figure, we save money, and the kids learn how to comparison shop.
