Video IconWe came into town to do a spot on the Today Show regarding Halloween Costumes. Weekend Today Show heard we were coming and asked if had time to come on their show as well. Of course we said yes! This was a fun interview with Weekend Today Show co-host Lester Holt where we discussed how to save money on groceries.

Unlike many hosts, Lester seemed very curious and genuinely interested in our lifestyle. It’s very expensive to live in New York City and we think he was looking to save some money.

Interview Topics We Covered

We teased Lester a little and he came back to riddle us with questions such as:

  • Is it a lot of work to be cheap.
  • What do you do to save money on groceries?
  • Are your kids deprived?
  • What do your friends think?
  • Do you freeze food?

Watch the Video

Watch the interview below. Lester told us that living in Manhattan is a challenge—his family usually just brings in food. We think he was intrigued by our ideas because he asked several questions that weren’t on the script he was supposed to follow.
