GET READY TO BECOME A COST EFFECTIVE SHOPPER!
To research original prices for items at a supermarket and make an estimate of the prices and then total both prices and compare them.
1. On a piece of loose leaf paper, make a chart with 3 columns:
- 1st column title ITEM
- 2nd column title ORIGINAL PRICE
- 3rd column title, ESTIMATED PRICE
- Bottom line title, TOTAL
2. Look at the weekly ads online at FoodLand, Times, and Safeway or from newspaper inserts to find the following Shopping List Items.
Shopping List Items:
3 produce items (fruit and vegetable)
3 meat items (beef, chicken, fish, etc.)
3 drinkable items (water, juice, etc.)
3 frozen items
3 dry food items (cereal, cookies, crackers, etc.)
3 non-food items (paper towels, detergent, etc.)
3. List each item, original price and estimated price in the chart that you created. Each original price must be in decimal form. Each estimated price must be in whole number form. Note: you may only use 6 prices in all that end in $0.99.
4. Add the ORIGINAL PRICE and ESTIMATED PRICE columns and write it at the bottom of the column.
Original and estimated price of the Grocery List items - 1/2 pt. each
Both original and estimated totals - 1 pt. each
Total: 20 points
