Faye Prosser, my colleague over at the WRAL Smart Shopper blog, will be doing one of her regular coupon workshops at the WRAL-TV studios on Oct. 20 and I have two pairs of tickets to give away!

Faye is an amazing resource if you're looking to cut your grocery bill and save money on all kinds of things. Her workshop is a great place to get the information you need if you're starting new efforts to coupon and save money or just need a refresher. Plus, Faye makes it a lot of fun!

I have two pairs of tickets to give away.

1. Follow @wralmoms on Twitter and tweet once about the contest.

2. Answer the following question in the comments below: Faye recommends making weekly meal plans and shares her plans with her readers each week. Do you make a weekly meal plan? If so, do you stick with the plan?

    I try to plan, but we get busy and then I just so to the easiest (and often more expensive) option like take out food.

    I don't make meal plans because our meal revolve around what is on sale that week in the grocery stores. Whatever is on sale- that's what we eat ;)

    I try and make a weekly meal plan. Even if it's not written, I do have a guide in my head. I have noticed on the weeks that I take the time to post my plan in the comments under Faye's plan, I do stick to it better. Accountability! :)

    We try and plan it out but if I forget to lay something out that day I just mess that up.

    I try to make a meal plan, but it is hard if we have a busy weekend. If I make one, I usually follow it.

    i do make a meal plan, but always have the fixings for a favorite fast meal on hand, for when God decides to change my plans!

  • thankupa Oct 5, 9:17 p.m.

    No, I don't make a meal plan.

    I don't usually make a weekly meal plan, but when I do I never stick to it! I try to think of ideas of things to make for dinner before grocery shopping so I know what to buy, but I usually end up cooking something different during the week.

    No, I don't make a weekly food plan, but I think it would be a great way to make things easier at meal time!

    I always make a weekly meal plan and am able to stick to it 4-5 days of the week. It always seems like something comes up and we need to grab something quick!
