    mwilson, Thanks for your interest! I am happy to discuss a class in Sampson Co with you. I am booked through October and scheduling classes for November now. Send me an e-mail at to discuss further.

    I have a question/suggestion. Do you think that you could have a couponing class in Sampson County? Even if you have to charge a dollar or two more per person (as I know gas prices are climbing) I am sure that you would have a good turnout and I assure you I would be the first to sign up! I hope you take this suggestion into consideration!
