Southern Women's Show Smart Shopper teaching and booth schedule

Posted April 23, 2013


As most of you know by now, I'll be out at the Southern Women's Show this weekend teaching workshops and hanging out at the Smart Shopper/Go Ask Mom/Out & About booth. Here's my teaching and booth schedule and I hope to see you there!


Coupon Classes

Friday, 4/26 from 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm on the Balancing Act Stage

Saturday, 4/27 from 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm on the Balancing Act Stage

This is an abbreviated version of the detailed classes I usually teach and there will be prizes involved!  Please stop in if you will be at the show at the times above.

Cooking Show: Meal Planning 101

Sunday, 4/28 from 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm on the cooking stage with cookbook author, Lisa Shively. I'll be whipping up a frugal dish (to share with everyone who comes to the class!) and chatting about meal planning in our game show/cooking class called "Let's Bake a Deal!." With a title like that, you know there will be lots of fun AND prizes involved!

My thanks to Aldi for sponsoring the cooking class again this year! They have generously donated the food I will be sharing at the class.

Smart Shopper Booth Schedule

I will also be at the Smart Shopper/Go Ask Mom/Out and About booth all day on Saturday (except when I am teaching from 1:30 - 2:30 pm). Look for the WRAL booth and you'll find the Smart Shopper/Go Ask Mom booth right next to it.  We are in the Exposition Center Building.

I will have the coupon organizer sets and extra pages (9-pocket and 4-pocket) available for sale at the booth on Saturday.

As always, the event has fashion shows (including one with fire fighters!), shopping, lots of food, free samples, coupons, cooking shows, celebrity guests and so much more!

    So excited to see all of you on Saturday! Such fun!

    Since I am only going to be at the booth all day on Saturday (vs all day every day during the last 2 years of the show), I am even more excited. This year each of the girls is coming with me on a different day (one of Friday and one on Sunday) and then we get to walk around together after I teach. I'll really get to enjoy the whole show this year.

    Thanks for the discount code, Faye! I also got a free magazine subscription to BHG, I guess for buying the tickets through the SWS website. BHG has good coupons sometimes. It also carries some nostalgia for me because I used to read it with my grandmother faithfully every month when her copy arrived in the mail. I've carried on the tradition. :)
