As part of our conversations about grocery shopping, food, costs, and being ‘part of the family’, many of us have mentioned that we invite or allow our au pairs to add items to the family grocery list, which we then pay for out of our family budget. Usually, we do this to accommodate our au pair’s food preferences while still taking responsibility for making sure she is nourished.
But how much money do you think is appropriate, an inquiring mom wants to know?
If you’ve had more than one au pair, think about it in terms of averages. And, as always, add additional comments too!
