It's hard to believe but Lisa tells Jean she has never actually pushed a cart through a grocery store before! Although the supermarket is foreign territory to Lisa, Jean teaches her how to be a savvy grocery shopper on a budget of $150 for a week's worth of meals.

Once the refrigerator is stocked, it's time for Lisa to start cooking. Lisa is a little nervous because she's only prepared a handful of meals in her lifetime, but with Jean's help and her new kitchen accessories, Lisa cooks up a homemade dinner for her family. The Bradleys enjoy their first sit-down family meal in years.

Jean says that she can see the difference that sitting down for family meals has made for the Bradleys. "When I got [here] the first time, this was such an empty house," says Jean. "There were people here but no conversations, no communication, no family time. What putting food on a table does for a family is forces that interaction, forces you to talk about everything—including your money—which helps you get on the right road."
