I haven't taught any or been to any yet, so I don't have any advice for you, sorry. I do get stopped at stores often though either by people new to couponing or ones that are thinking about starting it up, to others who just want to know where to get the cpns and/or the baseball card holders/sleeves.
Even my DH's coworkers have asked him if "his wife coupons". And he always answers "oh, yes she does, why?" Then they go into how they need to save money instead of spending so much, especially on food! So, DH tells them if they need help or advice to call. I already gave some advice to one of his coworkers since she lives in our neighborhood, however I don't know if she really got much out of it, cause I was driving and she was in the back seat and I couldn't actually show her what I was talking about. I just hope I didn't confuse the heck out of her! lol!
One of his coworkers mentioned his wife spends over $300 a Week! A week, on groceries! And I believe they only have 4 people in the house. He asked my DH if he thought that was too much per week. And DH responded "yeah." I told him "heck yeah it's too much, unless it was a one time deal for the holidays and they were having a big party or something. Still that's a bit much. I told him for the most part I spend $50- $100 a week on food. And we have for the most part 3 people in the house, sometimes 4 (like over the holidays) when DS comes home from college. We have two large dogs, however since I don't buy it at the same place I get food, and don't need to get it every week, I don't count their dog food into that. And it's not cheap either, but have no choice on the brand, cause we have tried alot of different kinds and this food is the only one that doesn't make them sick, seriously!! Do, you know what it's like to clean up after a boxer or dane after they throw up? Not fun!! That's no small clean up, I can tell you! Or have to let them out at all times, even a few times in the middle of the night, again No fun! So, we have to buy this food that hardly ever goes on sale, hardly ever has coupons for, and around here we can only buy it from 1 store (petsmart).
Well, I guess I talked enough about everything except what you asked for didn't I? lol!!! Oh well,
The bold ones are the ones that are most wanted!
These are ones we don't get in my area very often!
