Going Shopping
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "Mom, we're out of peanut butter!" cried Adam.
 
2     "Write it down on the list on the refrigerator," said Mom.
 
3     "Why do you always have that list there?" asked Adam.
 
4     "It makes it easier when I go grocery shopping. It helps me to remember what I need to get. It saves me time and money. I am going shopping this afternoon. Do you want to go with me?" Mom asked.
 
5     "Can I pick out my favorite kind of jelly?" Adam asked.
 
6     "Sure you can," said Mom.
 
7     Adam's mom made sure she put the list in her purse before they left for the store. On the way Adam asked how having a shopping list saved time and money. His mom told him that she looked at the list while she shopped. If she got all the things on the list, they would have everything they needed for a whole week. She wouldn't have to go to the store again until next week. That saves time.
 
8     "By getting only what's on the list, I won't buy things we don't need," Mom explained. "That saves money."
 
9     "But how do you always know what we need at the store?" asked Adam.
