We are excited to let you know that we are partnering together with Savings.com to offer coupon classes around the Northwest as part of Savings Nation. Sia and I had the opportunity to head to Los Angeles this past weekend to meet with the team from Savings.com & we are so excited to have the chance to get out in the community & meet many of you to share about our love of couponing & shopping strategically to save your family money.
I have been regularly asked to teach coupon classes since I started the Thrifty NW Mom 3 1/2 years ago, but I have only been able to do this on rare occasions due to my busy schedule with working from home on the blog & keeping up with my young children & all their activities. However, now that Sia & I partnered together this spring, this has provided us with more time to start teaching classes & workshops on a regular basis. We are really excited about getting out into the community more & sharing our stories of how couponing has impacted our families, enabling us to live on less & stretch our budgets further by using key shopping strategies & couponing skills. We are passionate about helping others learn to save money for your families so you too can live on less & give more.
Our partnership with Savings.com means we can bring you important tools & community support to help you in your journey to save your family moeny & achieve your financial goals. You will receive a booklet filled with all the important strategies for saving money at the stores at the coupon class, as well as the opportunity to participate in an online local & national community to share & ask questions as you put your couponing knowledge into action.
What is Savings Nation?
Savings Nation are local workshops taught around the country by money-saving experts, Savings.com Deal Pros, from your area. We will be giving you the information, tools, and community support to help you save 50% or more on your grocery bill, which could equal a savings of $200 a month for many families. We will not only be talking all about coupons, but learning tips for shopping strategically in the stores and effective meal planning strategies to make the most of your grocery budget. We’ll teach you how there is no such thing as small change.
Savings Nation Classes We Will Offer:
Grocery Savings Workshop:
Realistic Couponing - Learn how coupons work, how you can use them to save at least 50% on your groceries, understand your stores’ policies, and how to keep it all organized.
Strategic Grocery Shopping – Shop smarter & learn how to avoid common marketing traps at the grocery store
Meal Planning Made Simple - Get practical help with how to plan out your menu to save the most money.
Drugstore Savings Secrets:

We will cover a comprehensive overview & best shopping practices for Rite Aid and Walgreens policies as well as learn how to roll rewards to maximize savings. You will learn how to grow your stockpile for toiletries, household goods, cleaning supplies & food as well. This class is a nice complement to after the introductory Grocery Savings Workshop as it builds on your knowledge of couponing skills.
