She gave a pep talk on why cutting down your grocery bill is important and how it can lead to a money-saving mentality and lifestyle. The talk prompted a lively question-and-answer session, with workshop participants sharing their own knowledge.

About 75 people attended the workshop and got tips and goodies, including $5 coupons to Lowes and Harris Teeter gift cards. The first 25 participants got free reusable Harris Teeter shopping bags.
