For example, do they compare prices at different gas stations or always buy gas at the same place? Use this discussion to introduce the video. 2. Tell students the video will help them identify some additional ways they can help their family reduce their spending on everyday goods and services. Remind students that saving on everyday expenses involves all family members; if everyone works together to reduce spending, then the family has more money for other purchases or to add to their savings account, their vacation fund, or other family goals. 3.
