I'm not successful here at figuring out how to add a hash to an array inside of another hash.

I know this isn't ultimately that difficult, but I've spent too much time searching for this answer without success.

Please help if you can.

shopping_list.rb
grocery_list = { 'title' => 'Grocery List', 'items' => [] }
grocery_item = { 'title' => 'Bread', 'quantity' => 1 }

This is one way to do it:

grocery_list['items'] << grocery_item
