Did you know that September is National Coupon Month? With back to school, this is the perfect time to get organized and save on groceries! As part of my partnership with Savings.com we have lots of exciting events going on.
First off, I am teaching two classes this month that will help you save over 50% on your grocery bill!
Saving on your grocery bill is three-fold, and I believe that by utilizing the tips below, plus many more that I teach in my workshop you can save more than half on your next grocery bill. Many consumers don’t realize that these 3 key pieces together can save them loads at the grocery store.
- Meal Planning – Shop seasonally, and only purchase meats when they are on sale.
- Shopping Smarts – Outsmart yourself and outsmart the marketer by sticking to “rules” like don’t fall for the “end cap” trick, and resist the delicious temptations in the check-out line, celebrity magazines included! (If you want magazines, be sure to check out my magazine deals.)
- Couponing – Use websites including BargainShoppermom.com to help you match what coupons are currently available with the products that are on sale to get rock bottom prices.

All tickets profits from this class will be donated to the Rochester Area Neighborhood House Food Pantry.
