You've likely heard of extreme couponing, but without access to double coupon opportunities, the average Iowan isn't going to be able to replicate extreme shopping trips, netting hundreds of dollars of merchandise for mere pennies. But that doesn't mean we can't save money on our health and beauty products and groceries. Mary Potter Kenyon lived and breathed a couponing lifestyle for over 30 years. She was lauded as a Coupon Queen in a weekly column in a Dubuque newspaper for three years, featured in a couponing documentary, and is the author of "Coupon Crazy: The Science, the Savings, and the Stories Behind America's Extreme Obsession." Attendees will be entertained and educated in this fun two-hour workshop. Learn which products never to pay full price for, strategies for reading ads and combining sales with coupons, and ways to save money on your grocery bill. Book is included.
