Shopping Trip - Saved 81%

Let me preface all of this by saying that my shopping might be off schedule for the next few weeks. Skylar is on school break until mid-August so I am swapping playdates with friends in order to get my shopping done. I typically like to shop on days 1-3 of the new ad so that I can show you what you can get. However, that may not be possible the next few weeks, but I will try to keep you up to date on all the deals that I find.

Drug Store Savings Workshop

If you loved my Grocery Savings Workshop (GSW) and are ready to learn more, you should host or attend my Drug Store Savings Workshop. If you want to see details of how I have been saving 75% or more at drug stores, then THIS is the class for you.

My GSW teaches basic concepts such as locating coupons, matching them with sales and stockpiling. It's time to take it to the next level and learn the basics of in-store rebate programs at drug stores such as CVS & Walgreens. These stores are great for stockpiling toiletries, OTC medications, cleaners, paper products, and more at EXTREMELY low prices!

There is a $5.00 charge to attend this workshop. However, I am currently looking for individuals to host this class in their home. Anyone who hosts one of my workshops will be exempt from the $5.00 fee.

Attendance at the GSW is not required in order to attend the Drug Store Savings Workshop. So, gather up some friends and/or co-workers and let's have a great time learning how to save money together.

If you would like to host this workshop, please contact me at couponqueendiaries@gmail.com.
