Welcome to another episode of the Mind of a Millionaire podcast. This episode is a little different. Groceries can be one of the most substantial costs that a family faces – a lot in part to the wasted food that’s thrown away; especially by your little ones. So, Zak and his family of five – two adults, three kids – have taken on an experiment to cut their grocery budget in half without sacrificing quality of life and health.
