Want to Learn How to Coupon? Book a Coupon Class!

If you are new to couponing or want to learn some tips, book a coupon class with me! I have had this blog since 2009 and have been teaching coupon classes since 2011! I have taught one-on-one classes and have taught in front of audiences as large as 350! I love meeting my readers face-to-face and inspiring so many to save!

About Me:
I have been couponing since I was in pre-school! My mom had me clipping and organizing coupons for her and by the time I was in high school, I was getting sent to the store every Sunday morning to grocery shop! Learning to save money helped my through my college years at VCU while working 2 part-time jobs. I graduated in 2008 but continue to coupon now to save money, pay for student loans, donate to local shelters and spoil my pets Beamer and Bentley! 

What type of classes do I teach?
Couponing 101-Learn the basics of grocery shopping! Learn where to get coupons, how to organize them, money saving apps to download and how to save at the local grocery stores (Target, Kroger, Martin's Food Lion).
Black Friday Shopping-Learn how to score deals during black Friday shopping and all year round! Find out what websites you should be checking out for the best Christmas deals! Christmas will be here before you know it so book now!
*Drug Store Shopping 101-This is a new class-we will go over how to shop "The Drug Store Game" and how to score freebies at your local drug stores! 

Cost-$5/person (Richmond area) for the Couponing 101 and Black Friday Shopping classes. Since the Drug Store Shopping 101 is a new class that I created, you can book for only $3/person! Book now before the rate goes up! 
You will get a booklet that I created for the class and if the class is large enough, there will be a giveaway! $10 if outside Richmond area (Caroline, Fredericksbrug, Prince George etc)

*If you want to do all three classes at once (takes about 2hours, it is only $8/person!

People host classes at their house, place of employment, library, grocery store etc.
