8:39 am
make sure everybody knows we shopped the same items at all three chains whole foods, aldi's and walmart, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, gravy, cider apple pie. very important. >> you got your turkey at whole foods. >> we got the turkey, another $0.50 off. the grand total was $95, with your prime membership, we knocked another 15% off, brought it down to $82. >> what's the next store you went to? >> aldi's this is a national discount grocery retailer. this is fun, we did it the traditional way, the circular, you go in, see the deals, circle them, coupons et cetera, what i like is aldi's is putting this on their web site. you can plan ahead and make the list and stick to it that helps you save. aldi's has a $5 off the butter ball turkey. >> i like the turkey, i'm a fan. >> that brought the total down to $41 >> is this your whole thanksgiving deal that you got
8:40 am
for 41 >> this is going to work for everyone for eight people. >> the same items for all three. >> same items, they may not be the exact same brand, sometimes we shop the store brand. >> but aldi's was half the price of whole foods. >> yeah, it was. >> i thought you were finding what was cheap where. >> just for all of these things. >> but aldi's has good deals they probably think they're not going to get anymore deals but they offered like deals on deals. >> deals on deals! deals on deals on deals. good stuff >> let me take you down to walmart: walmart is having a big deal on turkey, this is the best three out of these three retailers. $0.68 per pound, through christmas, december 26th that was a big money saver for us with the walmart products and what we did was we were able to bring the total for walmart. it started at $38, we got it down to $35 using an app this is what i want to show you. this is pretty cool. so it's the ibotta app, you have to shop through your phone, and they have partnerships with retailers throughout the country. >> this isn't beneficial for
8:41 am
just walmart. >> target, rite aid, it all works, but the key with walmart is you have to go to the walmart grocery, not, click through on that part of the tab, and you're going to get an extra $3 back, when you do it the way we did, order everything online, and picked it up in store, so that brought our whole total down to $35 for a meal for eight people. >> the shopping app you used is called what. >> ibotta. >> and through walmart, you have to click through the grocery portion of walmart. >> that's how you get the cash back, that's critical. that's how the apps work, they want you to start there, and through to the retailer. >> you pick your stuff and go to walmart, and pick it up. >> and the pro tip is sometimes it will say things are sold out, but when you get to the store, ask, they said pumpkin pies were sold out, if everything doesn't work out, just ask. >> 35 bucks for 8 people thank you so much. you can see the entire shopping list at all right. coming up next, an inside look at a ground breaking documentary series, it's the same group of people, they were followed for more than five decades to see

8:45 am
>> how interesting is it to see these young people evolve into these adults. >> fascinating it's the greatest story on the planet. >> film maker michael apted who directed movies like "gorillas in the mist" has been working on the series since the beginning it started with a premise about england's class system. >> give me a child until you're 17 and i will show you the man. >> which means. >> it means that you can tell how people are going to turn out much earlier than you think. >> still, the series has shown all the ups and downs and surprises life can deliver. >> every experience will change you. >> the latest installment, nick reveals he was recently diagnosed with throat cancer. >> i mean, right now i'm struggling with being ill. life doesn't turn out the way i expect.
