Couponing workshop at WRAL open for registration!

Posted September 15, 2011

The October 15 couponing workshop at the WRAL-TV studios is now open for registration. This workshop is also a Food Drive and a Coupon Swap! I hope you can join us here at the studio!

Class details:

Date: Saturday, October 15

Time: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Location: WRAL-TV Studios, 2619 Western Blvd, Raleigh, NC 27606

Cost: $15.00 per person

Registration:  Click HERE to register online. Seating is limited to 100 people and pre-registration is required.

Coupon swap details:

After the class, participants are invited to stay for a coupon swap at the studio! Simply bring those coupons you won't be needing from the Sunday newspaper inserts, printable coupon sites, or any other coupons you find to share with everyone else. Please have your coupons cut and in an envelope to make sharing more efficient. We will sit in groups of 10 or so and pass the envelopes around from one person to the next until you get your envelope back. The swap will last about an hour, but you don't need to stay the whole time, if you need to leave earlier.

Food Dive

Please bring a couple non-perishable items to donate to the Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina. Between the recent hurricane and the difficult economy, the food bank very much needs our help! Everyone who brings in at least 1 donation will receive an extra door prize ticket!

Class Description

Discover how to cut your grocery bills in half using the Smart Spending System. You will learn to use coupons and many other effective techniques to ensure you never pay full price for groceries again!

You will discover how to:

* Effectively use coupons for items you already buy
* Use weekly sales fliers in conjunction with coupons
* Understand grocery and drug store coupon & sale policies & reward programs

This workshop will change the way you shop and teach you to save more than you ever imagined!

    I got one of the last 2 tickets for the class!! SOOOOO...glad I saw this! I'm semi-new to the whole coupon thing, but what I've been able to save at HT on double/triple coupons has got me wondering how much I can really save. Can't wait!

    Wideopen - the products are not available for sale at WRAL on a daily basis. You can pick them up at any class or order them on my website. I am happy to meet you so you can avoid the shipping cost if I am going to be somewhere near where you live/work or you want to meet me in Cary or the 40/42 area. I do this for folks all the time. Send me an e-mail at to discuss. Thanks!

    I won't be able to make this one but would love to know if I can purchase your DVD and book at WRAL studios?

    tiernee - We will get you started and help you understand the coupon puzzle. You are more than welcome to stay for the swap. I suggest that between now and the class, you get the Sunday paper a couple times and cut out the coupons for products you do use and then bring the extras to the swap. You can also ask friends and neighbors for their coupons once they are done with them. In addition, you can print coupons off the internet from places like and for items you use. You'll already be doing a little couponing before you ever get to class! Looking forward to meeting you. - Faye

    Rayne - Can't wait to see you again!

    Not big on coupons, I guess because I really dont know how. I am going to register for this class and see how it works. Unfortunately, I do not have any coupons to share. Hope that doesnt disqualify me ...

    Faye, just signed up for the class. I am looking so forward to learning.

    Actually, noreplytome - I will be giving out coupons and door prizes so some folks will win goodies worth more than the cost of the class!

  • noreplytome2 Sep 16, 2011

    What? No coupon for this?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Sep 15, 2011

    Mashae - I have a class in Sanford next week, but the class has already filled up. I'm sorry. Hopefully I will be back in that area sometime soon, though. You can check my full workshop schedule at in the next couple months to see if any other Sanford classes have been scheduled.

    By any chance, are you making plans to do a class in the Sanford/Fayetteville area? We would really appreciate it.
