Introducing Kosher on a Budget Webinars

Drumroll please…

I’m thrilled to announce the launch of Kosher on a Budget webinars, a series of 60-minute online classes focusing on the most asked-about topics from KOAB readers.

From budgeting to couponing, these webinars will feature instruction and hopefully a bit of inspiration to save more and live better.

I have set the webinar schedule thru the end of March — there will be three different webinars on three different topics, as outlined below.

More topics will be offered in the spring and summer, so if you were interested in learning about a subject that isn’t listed here, feel free to contact me with your ideas.

I encourage you to sign up early as each online class will be limited to 25 participants – on a first-come, first-serve basis.

KOAB Winter Webinar Schedule

Webinar #1 – How to Make and Stick to a Budget
Date: Tuesday, February 5th, 2013 @ 8 p.m. CST

Are you harnessing the power of your income to maximize your savings and investments? Or does money seem to slip through your checkbook each month, leaving you wondering, “Where did it all go?”

This 60-minute webinar will teach you the fundamentals of budgeting so that you know exactly where your money goes – and how best to spend it.

No theoretical numbers here! This is all about working with your actual income and your actual expenses – so that you can establish a budget that really works for your family.

Participants will also receive my budget worksheet as well as recommendations on software and services to help you track your spending.

Webinar #2 – Strategic Couponing 101
Date: Tuesday, February 19th, 2013 @ 8 p.m. CST 

Do you want to spend less money at the grocery store but find the mere thought of couponing intimidating or overwhelming? Maybe you’ve tried to coupon before but quit because you found it wasn’t worth the time and effort to save only a few pennies each trip.

Think you can’t coupon because you keep kosher? Eat organic? Are gluten-free? Think again! I’ll debunk all these couponing myths plus give you practical strategies for finding, organizing and using the highest value coupons for maximum savings.

Let me teach you the secrets of Strategic Couponing so that you can cut your grocery bills by 50% or more — in just two hours a week or less.

After this webinar, you will be armed with all the tools you need to spend less – and eat better!

Webinar #3 – 10 Ways to Save for Passover
Date: Tuesday, March 5th, 2013 @ 8 p.m. CST 

Whether you are hosting both seders at home, or traveling out of town to visit family, Passover brings with it a whole new set of challenges when it comes to saving money.

Although I don’t have a secret source for free matzah, I do have 10 money-saving strategies that will reign in your budget without compromising quality or kashrut.

This webinar is being offered thee weeks before Passover – plenty of time to get yourself into money-saving mode!

Participants will receive printables for organizing pre-Passover shopping and inventorying supplies at the end of the holiday.

How Much Do KOAB Seminars Cost?

Each 60-minute webinar costs $10. In addition to the live class, all registered participants will receive a note-taking packet and printables, available for download the evening of the class.

Upon registering, you will be prompted to pay via paypal. You don’t need a paypal account to use this service, but if you have any issues, let me know.

Registration is non-refundable, but if an emergency comes up, I will work with you to reschedule your attendance or return your money.

What equipment is needed to participate in a webinar?

All you need is a home computer with built-in (or external) speakers and a high speed Internet connection. You can interact with me via your keyboard – no microphones, telephones or headsets necessary!
