Grocery Shopping for the Blind
The grocery shopping skill is used for everyone; I will just be putting a blind twist on it here. There are many different ways to do this, so
here are a couple.
Get Organized...hmmm, an absolute running theme in what we do
Keep a grocery list throughout the week, either on a brailler or
slate-n-stylus, yes a Braille Note or other adapted laptop works too,
but I am always leery with computerized equipment around food and
liquids. A grocery store can mean anything and you will never cry over
ruining a piece of paper you brought to the store versus a Braille Note.
Bring a calculator.
In school, students can practice this also, except it will be for a
cooking lesson at the end of the week. So a list is made with a budget.
Today, this step takes a leap and a bound. Prices can be looked up
online, to get the idea of the budget you have and need to stay within
and if you are in a big enough town, groceries can be ordered online.
What an incredible time saver. Yes, you are going to have to be a bit
tech-savvy, but once you learn the ropes in ordering your food online,
it is an easy process. In a small town, with a small store, a telephone
