2012 Couponing Workshops

Starting in February 2012 I have some big changes for workshops!

Instead of traveling all over the southeast (which is fun don’t get me wrong) I am going to be doing one workshop a month, each in a different area.  These are going to be a bit different than what you may have seen in the past.  I am working to get grocery stores, financial planners and many others involved in making this a true savings event!

Another big difference is that ALL workshops are now 100% non-profit.  All proceeds will raise funds for local food banks and Operation Christmas Child.  It is still $10 to attend, but it’s awesome to get a chance to help others while learning to save!

If you are interested in learning everything about couponing in one place, check out the upcoming workshops and keep checking back for an event in your area.

For anyone that can’t make it to a workshop, don’t worry I have more big news coming in a few weeks…

    • Rachel N

      I was only able to attend half of a workshop, and hope to see you in the NW Atlanta area soon!! Your workshop breaks it down and it’s nice to get to hear (and ask) the questions. If you haven’t gone to to one, people – go!!

    • Skippar

      Any chance you will be in the Asheville, NC area soon? Please. Thank you.

      • I won’t have an actual workshop in Asheville this year, instead I co-host an event called Becoming in Asheville every September and teach the workshop during that event.  I am speaking at a Homeschool conference in March in Spartanburg  if that might work?  Or the news coming mid Feb. (hinted at above) will work for ya!

      • Just bring a pen or pencil.  you’ll get a workbook to take notes in.  Just come ready to learn, it can be a lot of information!  I try to make it fun though :)

      awaiting TN!  :)

    • Elisabet Maldonado

      Jenny are you open to coming to a business to talk to employee about saving money?

    • wintermoon

      I hope you are planning one in Chattanooga, TN.  I went to the one in Ooltewah, TN and learned a lot on how to use coupons more effectively. 

    • Jeannetta

      I would like to know what to do when the paper has no coupons. Like the first Sunday of this year. I called and they said there were no coupons at all. Please email me jcavon02@yahoo.com I am tired of fighting with tired of fighting with the paper. Thanks Jeannetta

      • Elisabet Maldonado

        Jeannetta, there are no Qpons in the Sunday Paper after a holiday. 

        • CamiD

          I had coupons in my paper on 1/1/12…

    • Shannon V.

      Jenny-
      Is this more for beginners? I have been following your site for over a year and attended the Becoming conference last year. I love to hear you speak, but if will be a lot of repetition, I’d rather leave the space open for a newbie :-)

      • A good portion is for new folks.  If you attended Becoming last year it will be pretty much the same (though slightly slower since I ran out of time).

    • Seastman14

      Any plans for Wilmington NC?

      • I’ll be just south of there this Saturday in Shallotte (it’s about 30-40 minutes outside).

        • Livbysea61

           Where in Shallotte?

          • Kwikzotic

            4486 main st at the First Babt. Church

    • FarmerJill

      Impatiently waiting for the BIG news :) webcast or something of the sort, I hope! Was hoping to see you in Fl last year but I’m in Central Fl and you didn’t make it down quite that far. Thank you for all you do Jenny! This site has been such a blessing to my family, I’m so glad your workshops will now become a blessing to others in so many ways!

    • House mama

      Please come to Nashville :)

      • Denise

        Yes Nashville would be nice!!

      • RKissner

        Please come to Nashville…

    • amanda baldwin

      I was so excited to see that you are coming to Jacksonville, FL in February :-D!! I will be there.

    • Scrapper39

      Please come further south like MS/LA/TX or let me know if you know of someone in these areas that also do this.

    • Kerrileigh3

      I saw you’re adding Financial planners to your courses…my husband is a financial advisor. He’s excellent at what he does and has a real heart for helping people save money! I’ve been following your site for almost 2 years now, and he always sends clients to your site to learn how to use coupons to save money. If you need an advisor for either of your Columbia sessions, I’m sure he’d be willing to help. We live in Greenville which isn’t too far away.

    • Livbysea61

      Where are you going to be in Shallotte on Saturday?

    • Renee

      Sure wish you had Workshops in NorthEast Mississippi or the New Orleans area. Perhaps we should find a way to clone you or train me to hold workshops for you in Louisiana and Mississippi. Pretty blatent hint but I would love to learn all I can from you and have the opportunity to teach others!

    • Carolyn

      Any plan to come back to Knoxville TN, I missed you when you came out this way.I really want to bring my Mother in-law. I am working with her, she us staring to get it, but your workshop would be great for both of us.

      • Sbranch

      • Brat214918

        We come to Knoxville TN often. My husbands family is there. His Aunt works at the library in Knoxville. I would love to come to a workshop. All this is knew to me and very over-whelming but it seems like a lot of fun so I will keep trying!

      Is seating limited? When you say you can pay at the door it makes me think it’s unlimited.

    • Guest

      Jenny, I am a mortgage lender and an avid couponer and learned everything I know from your seminar last year and this site.  I work for a reputable company in business for 25+ years owned by a bank (not a broker) and would love to add a brief segment on how to save money when purchasing a home or refinancing and down payment assistance programs available for 1st time homebuyers and for those that re not 1st time homebuyers (up to $15,000 available that you do not pay back).  I am happy to speak at your local seminar and am happy to do so without promoting my company.  I love to educate people regarding mortgage financing pitfalls so they do not get taken advantage of by someone without their best interest at heart.  Please feel free to contact me at kelrod2005@gmail.com or kelley@homeownersmtg.com.  I am located in same area that you live, but serve all states in the SE.

    • Jen

      Jenny, I met you at the Becoming conference. I have a friend who is interested at being a vendor at your Birmingham workshop. How can he find out more information?

      • Jen

        Correcting my comment – “interested in”, not “at” : )

    • Elethawarren

      Is the Lawrenceville one free?

      • AP

        When you click on the link it says free to register online, but then $10 at the door (check or cash).

    • Sutherwax

      I am looking forward to the big news since you are not coming to my area.

    • Couponeagle11

      I have been couponing for 3 years now and extreme for the last 1 1/2. I have never been to a seminar do you think it will benefit me if Im already aware of where and how to find coupons, store and use them.

    • Hawaiian Couponer

      Jenny, I attended your workshop last Fall in Gainesville, GA….will the one you’re having on Jan. 19th in Lawrenceville cover the exact same material or will there be any new info?  I really enjoyed learning from you and you are a very entertaining speaker!! ( :

    • AP

      Thank you for coming to Lawrenceville GA!  Even though I’ve been doing this for a little while, I earned a lot, and the friend I brought did too!  You’re a great speaker & very funny!  Thank you for all you do & God Bless!!
