Hey Chicagoans! I’m thrilled to announce that I will be teaching a two-part series on budgeting, saving money and couponing in Chicago the first week of August.
Hosted by the ARK, the classes will be held on Tuesday, August 2, 2011 and Thursday, August 4, 2011 from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. Attend one or both of the classes, whatever fits your schedule and interests.
August 2: Saving Fundamentals
Do you want to save 25-30% at the grocery store without ever clipping a coupon? Kosher on a Budget blogger Mara Strom will teach you how to fill your fridge & pantry while sticking to a smaller budget. Strategies will include price books, sale cycles, and menu plans.
August 4: Strategic Couponing
Ready to kick your grocery savings into high gear? Learn how to fill your cart for FREE or pennies on the dollar. Mara will teach you how to save 50% or more on your grocery and household budget through strategic couponing. Plus, learn the secrets of shopping for free at CVS and Walgreens.
The ARK will be charging a nominal fee of $8 per class, or $15 for both classes.
Bring non-perishable food items to donate to the ARK’s food pantry and get a raffle ticket for each item. Fun prizes, including a month’s worth of Chicago Tribune coupon inserts, courtesy of my awesome reader, Becky!
