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 with internet, a printer and/or Sunday newspaper. Door prizes and a chance to win raffled grocery gift cards.
Two sessions: 11am 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 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: This class is a really hard sell for you to subscribe to the Review-Journal, but the info is fantastic regardless, and there's no obligation. I tried to multi-paper subscription and found that for a household of one lady, I wasn't saving enough. But I could see how certain families could make a great haul. One frugaller suggested you pick up Sunday papers at the 99c for a discount. I personally pick the View papers out of my apartment complex's trash can in the mail room. ;-D
