I have been procrastinating at posting new workshops but decided to load a bunch today all at one time.

I’m excited that we will have our first ever Florida class!  It’s only a few weeks away so spread the word quickly if you can, North Florida Folks.  There are also new classes in Atlanta GA, Cleveland GA, Greenville SC, and Thomasville NC. Go here to details and to register.

I’m working on classes in Alabama in Mid November but need help with locations.  If you know of a place that would let us meet there please email me!

There is also a special event coming up for anyone around Cleveland TN.  Friday October 9th there is a FREE Couponing Town Hall sponsored by First Baptist of Cleveland.  I will be the guest speaker!!  It is exciting how much they are putting into this event so if you are in the area, please register and plan to enjoy a great night.  (You do need to register they are working on bags and goodies for everyone so they need to have an idea on numbers).

    • Jennifer

      • Alena

        I’m with ya, Jennifer! Excited about the Greenville class :)

        • Nette

          I’m in Greenville as well! I just signed myself and my mom up for the class. :) I can’t wait! This blog is the first coupon blog I discovered and it’s my first source for info everyday! Yah Jenny!

    • Ashley in FL

      YEAH!!! Thank you for coming to Florida. :)

    • Kim C

      I am SOOOO excited you’re coming to Jacksonville !!!! I love your website. You’ve helped me save SO much money. I’m telling everyone that I know. ;o)

    • Freedom

      Much buzz about the one in Cleveland, TN. I will be there as well as about 5 or 6 others that i have gotten started couponing with you!!

    • Emily

      I’ve emailed you multiple times about a possible workshop in Durham/Raleigh NC but have never heard back. Let me know if you’d be interested in heading to the NC Capital!

    • Jenny

      Would you consider recording one of your classes, and then selling it for the $5 or $10 for those of us outside of your enchachment area (such as myself up here in northern IN)? I would most definitely be interested in purchasing such a tool.

    • Kristy

      How many would you expect at an AL class? My church would sponser I’m sure, but seating is limited as its a small church. I know antoher place that is $60.00 for 2 hours that would probably seat 60ish. Let me know average attendance and I’ll see what I can find. We’d love to host a class in Sweet Home Alabama!

    • nancy

      Would love to see you come to Wilmington, NC. It sounds exciting. Yahooooo for you.

    • I have a ? I was reading your Friday Finals and was just wondering , Does Publix take competitor coupons? I usually shop at Food Lion, but they don’t really take competitor Q’s. If Publix does then I am going to try them next time. I hear it’s a great place to shop, but have never ventured there! Thanks for your help and advice!

      Ginny – new to this, but catching on

      • D

        Ginny,

        Pulix does take competitor coupons. Ask the customer service desk to see which ones they take. I get some great deals at Publix using competitor coupons.

        Good Luck!

      • Beth

        Yes, most Publix stores take competitor coupons. I would ask at customer service (before you shop) which stores they consider to be a competitor. Usually it’s all grocery stores in the same area, but some will also take Target and drugstore coupons.

        • Thank you so much Beth for replying back! That helps alot! Do you shop at publix? And if so do you have good experiences?

          • CouponNERD

            I have GREAT experiences at Publix, combining the BOGO with a mfg AND a competitor coupon. I use the Food Lion coupons the most – sometimes getting items for free.It’s very rare that I don’t save more than I spend at Publix. I can get a cartload of groceries for $40 at Publix!

    • Rebekah

      I would like to have a workshop in the Charleston, SC area! :)

    • Joy

      Come to Hendersonville Tn. we have a large church you could have a huge workshop at!

      • Mindy

        I want to go to the TN one so bad!!!! BUT, It’s over 2 hours away and that won’t work on a Friday. Hendersonville sounds good to me!!! We need a middle TN gathering!!!

    • Kristina

      Looking forward to your visit to Alabama. We have quite a few “coupon clippers” in Huntsville, AL and surrounding areas (Also known as The Tenn. Valley Area). Keep us posted. I belong to a very small church, but there are many large churches in the area. If the word gets out, I’m sure you’ll have quite a few particpants. We have quite a few resourceful folks around here. I’m sure someone on the board knows of a place. However, if you have difficulty finding a place, please send me an e-mail.

    • We are so excited to have you coming to Cleveland, TN, Jenny! :-)

    • Angie

      Jenny-

      My church in Birmingham AL might be able to host a coupon workshop in November. How many participants do you usually have? Do participants need desks or would chairs be o.k? Please let me know any other important considerations that I would need to pass along to the church staff.

    • I second the Hendersonville , TN area! That would be great!

      • Ashley

        I agree one in Hendersonville would be GREAT!

    • I can’t wait to see you at the Cleveland, TN town hall! I’ve been signed up for a month and am counting down the days!

    • Natalee

      I am in the Athens/Huntsville area of Alabama and can’t wait until you come here. We have many libraries with conference rooms around here & MANY good size churches for hosting you. Please let me know if I can be of any help when you come here!!! I have many friends that will probably need your advice as well :)

    • Jenny (the other one)

      PLEASE come to Concord Baptist Church!!!!! We are just outside of Birmingham, AL in Hueytown, AL. Our church can hold about 500 plus! This would be a GREAT community outreach! We would love to partner your ministry with ours. You have such a big following here I hope 500 would hold us all!

      Besides, I would like to prove that “I am not the Jenny from SouthernSavers.”

    • Kellie

      Jenny,

      I would love for you to have a class in the Mobile, Al area.

    • Amy

      How about stopping by Gainesville, FL?

      • Ashley in FL

        Jacksonville is only about 90 minutes from G’ville. You should join us on the 13th!!

    • Kim

      I think I smell a road trip comin’ on!!

    • Jenn

      What part of Alabama are planning to visit? I am in Birmingham. Let me know if you need a place to hold the class. How many usually attend? Is there a cost?

    • Kyra

      I am planning on going to the Cleveland, TN event, but was wondering if breastfed 3 1/2 month olds ar allowed to come.

      Thanks.

    • Jennifer
