Build your couponing skills with pair of library workshops

Sometimes grocery shopping can stir up some unwanted stress. However, there's a way to alleviate some of those nerves. The popularity of couponing continues to grow as a way to save money while stocking the shelves of the pantry and refrigerator.

The library is giving an opportunity for local shoppers to learn couponing skills from an expert, welcoming Patsy Smith, the “Consumer Queen,” of the website for a pair of programs at the library. Registration is required separately for each program.

Basic Couponing, at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 8, looks at techniques for getting started in couponing.

The following week, at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 15, is an Advanced Couponing program. This class goes into a little more detail to help bring consumers from regular shopper to coupon guru. It will include use of store rewards and smartphone apps.
