I start this lesson in letting the students understand that they get to choose what is important to them. If they want a Coach diaper bag then they can do that, but understand that name brand items are going to cost more. I let them do this because they do not understand the magnitude of the cost of raising a baby. Most of my students love this assignment and keeps their interest for 2 days. I tell the students to not look up multiple items but to look up one item they like and then multiply the cost.
