Posted November 4, 2011

 

Here are the upcoming couponing classes I am teaching through the end of the year and into 2012. Whether you are a beginner or have been couponing for years, if you are not saving at least 50% off your grocery bill, these workshops will give you the tools and techniques you need to get to the next level!

I add classes to the schedule frequently and if you are interested in having me teach a private or public class for your business, church or other group, just send me an e-mail at saving@smartspendingresources.com.

    Thanks Faye, it's going to be a strain on our finances but family comes first. We won't be getting any suppport for the kids father so saving money is a must. We have to move, find furniture and juggle our work schedules but I wouldn't have it any other way. We will manage and make a home for the grandkids. They need stabilty in their lives.

    Wow, Kathy. I wish you all the best with the grandkids. It sounds like they are very lucky they have you! I hope to see you in February!

  • chesirekat1964 Nov 4, 2011

    I hope we can attend the workshop at the WRAL studios in February. We are going to be getting custody of our 3 grandkids soon and will need all the help we can get to save money. Thank you so much Faye for helping all of us learn how to save money and shop wisely.
