Interested in learning how to save money at the grocery store? Or do you feel like you need a refresher course in couponing?
Registration is now open for my next coupon workshop, a half-day class on Saturday, June 16.
Unlike my previous classes, which were held at The N&O's offices, I'll be teaching this class at the Halle Cultural Arts Center in downtown Apex, which happens to be my hometown for the last 19 years.
It's a much bigger venue, which means more folks can take advantage of the opportunity to participate in the class, which will cover basic and advanced coupon techniques, teaching you to save at least 50 percent, if not more, on your grocery bill.
The half-day session will include information on:
- finding, organizing and using coupons for the items you already buy.
- matching your coupons with the weekly grocery ads to maximize your savings.
- tips on using digital coupons to your advantage.
- the ins and outs of local grocery and drugstore policies and rebate programs.
- meal planning and other frugal-living tips.
The class will run from 10 a.m. to 12:30 at the Halle Center, 237 N. Salem St., Apex, 27502. The doors will open at 9:30 a.m.
The cost of the class is $15, which you should easily recoup in your first shopping trip. That fee includes free parking, a free breakfast, a class handout and a reusable grocery bag filled with some nice freebies.
We'll also do a drawing for prizes, which include grocery gift cards, movie passes, restaurant freebies, cookbooks, children's books and more.
Bring a donation to the Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina and get a second chance to win.
Go to the N&O ZONE page to register.
Registration is $15 and is open to N&O subscribers only through May 29. Starting May 30, admission will be $20 and will be open to the general public.
