Boomers and their adult kids have much in common, surveys say
Believe it or not, several surveys offering offbeat comparisons between boomers and their millennial children indicate that they share more commonalities than you might think.
Take wasting money. Both generations cite eating out as an unnecessary expense. More than half of boomers and three-quarters of millennials agree that they spend too much money in restaurants. Also topping the list: throwing out uneaten or expired food, with about 30 percent of both generations admitting that they waste money by not planning better.
