This contest is over! Congratulations to our winners busyb97 and swmbo.

Faye Prosser, the WRAL Smart Shopper, will be sharing all of her shopping tips at a workshop at the WRAL-TV studios on Aug. 6 and I have two pairs of tickets to give away!

I was lucky to attend one of Faye's workshops last year and, as I've written before, I came away with so many tips that have saved me lots of money in the last year. She teaches all about how you can save money using coupons; taking advantage of store sales; and planning your meals and shopping trips. The workshop is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 6. Click here for details. Tickets are $15 and there were just a few left at last check.

What do you need to do to enter to win? One or both of the following:

1. Like the WRAL Go Ask Mom Facebook page.

2. Answer the following question in the comments below: North Carolina's tax-free shopping weekend is Aug. 5 to Aug. 8. Will you be shopping?

This contest ends at noon, July 29. Two winners will be picked at random from all entries. The winners' user name or Facebook name will be posted on this post by 9 p.m. July 29 and an email will be sent to the winner, if possible. The winners must respond by 5 p.m. Aug. 1 or a runner-up will be selected. Good luck!

    Walmart and target have good sales. It really depends on what research I do when reading up on sale flyers

  • jcollins6 Jul 27, 2011

    Yes, I will be shopping, looking for deals and using any coupons I can, but I won't be buying anything that I don't really need.
