Extreme Couponing Free Event with Las Vegas resident Jen Freeman, featured on TLC's Extreme Couponing show. Shannon and Jen will teach you tips to slash your grocery bill with their quick weekly method that eliminates all the clipping and mental gymnastics. You'll just need a computer at home with internet, a printer and/or Sunday newspaper. Door prizes and a chance to win raffled grocery gift cards.
Three sessions: 11am, 4pm, or 7pm -- RSVP at their website. Please arrive 15 minutes early. No-Host Event -- Comment what time you're going and you can meet up with other frugallers. :-)
I attended her class in March, and the one thing that blew my mind was the website that matches up all this week's sale ads with the bonus coupons all listed and linked -- I previously hated coupons and thought they were a pain in the ass -- but now I use her website and I've probably saved a hundred dollars since. It's really easy once she shows you the fast way to use it. (www.reviewjournal.com/couponing)
HOT TIP: Beware, the class is a pretty hard sell for you to subscribe to the Review-Journal, but the info is fantastic regardless, and there's no obligation. If you're skeptical like me, attend the class and try just the website coupon links for a month. Keep track of what you would have saved if only you had those newspapers, and if you see dollars a week you would have saved, the paper's worth it. I have the 5-Sundays subscription and at least break even, but I'm just one lady. A family would def get their money's worth. Another frugaller suggested you can pick up Sunday papers at the 99c for a discount while you're doing the test run too. Then if you decide to subscribe, swing by her next class to grab her exclusive rate card and get the multi-Sunday deal.
