August 2: Saving Fundamentals

Do you want to save 25-30% at the grocery store without ever clipping a coupon? I’ll 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. I 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.

  1. I’m only able to come Thursday but I can’t wait to meet you IRL! 🙂

  2. Yay – I’m so excited you are coming! And honored! I *heart* reading your blog.

  3. Miriam Schoeman says

    I just signed up for both and I’m excited to meet you and learn from you. When I just started couponing, I got overwhelmed in coupons and printed all of them, even for things I’d never buy, because it could be a moneymaker. I don’t do that as much now, but I definitely could benefit from strategies. I end up throwing away lots of expired coupons.
