Reader Janice let me know that her family was selected as a Nielsen Homescan Family.  She was sent a scanner and she scans her purchases once she gets home and is putting them away. 

As I mentioned previously, I was a member of a company that merged with Nielsen.  I took a different approach and scanned my items as I was adding them to my cart at the store.  I was able to strike up a lot of conversations with people at the stores I shopped as they asked me what I was doing.  It was a lot of fun! 

So, if you are interested in applying, click HERE.  They randomly select families as openings come up.  So I figure it is worth a shot to fill out the application, you never know!
