New Couponing Workshops: Grocery Store Savings & Drug Stores & More! Hurry & Register to Reserve Seats.

.

We’ve got several coupon workshops coming up that you don’t want to miss out on!  I’m all about keeping it simple, so if you are worried you’ll have to spend hours each week preparing to go to the grocery store you can breathe easy.  I don’t think couponing should take over your life, instead it’s just a tool to help your finances.  After all, whether you save 5%, 10% or 60% you are still saving your family money.

Simplified Step by Step Couponing!

I’ve taken everything I’ve learned and put it in an easy-to-understand format.  I know how it feels to be stressed with life’s responsibilities and burdens, especially the financial ones. With all we have going on, who has the extra time to spend hours a day clipping coupons? I certainly don’t and I’m sure you don’t either. I’ve learned how to balance savings with having a life and without it being an obsession.

Grocery Store Savings

  • My story going from Distress to Giving.
  • Understanding why couponing never worked before.
  • Store Sale + Coupons = Big Savings
  • How to get started & tools to be successful.
  • Where to find coupons.
  • Organization of Coupons & Stockpiles.
Drug Stores & More
  • How to shop for household, health, and beauty items for super cheap.
  • The differences between drugstore and grocery shopping (it’s like night and day).
  • How to use multiple transactions.
  • How to strategically use the store currency.
  • How to grow and roll the money each week.
