Update: Just a reminder that we are having our Grocery Savings class tonight on Joint Base Lewis McChord! We still have a few spots left, so make sure to sign up! I also added more detailed directions for you in case you don’t know where this location is.
We are excited to announce another Savings Nation coupon class we have scheduled for September. On Tuesday September 25th, we will be holding a Grocery Savings Coupon Class on the Joint Base Lewis McChord at North Fort Lewis from 6 – 8pm. Since this is taking place on the military base, you will need to have access to the base to be able to attend. However, if you have a friend who has military/base access, you can come along with her/him to get onto base & to come to the class. The class is open to anyone, as long as you can access the military base yourself or with a friend.
This is a 2 hour class, jam-packed with great information to teach you how to save at least 50% off your grocery bill – this could be a savings of $200 a month for many families. This is the perfect time to come if you’ve been wondering what couponing is all about & want to get all of your questions answered! Both Sia & I will be teaching this class, too, & sharing all of our tips for saving money at the grocery store. We will get you set up with all the necessary tools & community support to keep you successful on your journey to saving money for your family!
During the class, you will receive a workbook to take notes & then you can bring it home to help you as you try out the strategies we will teach you.
