I'd like to offer a special thanks to the following people and companies who donated food for the food drive and giveaway items for participants at the grocery workshop at WRAL last weekend!

First, I want to thank all of you who attended the workshop! I really enjoyed meeting you and can't wait to hear about your success stories and big savings! Thanks to those who have already e-mailed me with feedback.

Not only did we chat for 3 hours about how to slash your grocery bills in half - we also had a food drive. You all donated 197 pounds of food to the Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina on Saturday! That will make a lot of meals! Thank you soooo much!

Second, thanks to these companies for their generous donations of door prizes and swag bag items including gift cards, Lowes Foods Fresh Rewards coupons, groceries, chip clips, grocery lists and nice cloth recycled grocery bags!:

Lowes Foods

Harris Teeter

Whole Foods

Earth Fare

Cold Stone Creamery in the Triangle

Mt. Olive Pickles


We all appreciate your generosity (and the great deals you offer us everyday!).
