I am so excited. I am gearing up to teach my very first coupon class! I have my Power Point and handouts all ready, my coupons are up to date, (I must be a good example) my "show and tell" receipts are all in order, and I even have copies of the October Walgreens' coupon booklet to hand out. I am stoked! I even have door prizes prepared from my stash of goodies !
When I was preparing my material I was surprised at just how much I have picked up in the last 2 years. It is funny when I go back and look at all of the "secrets" of using coupons. It is so much different than in my mother's day, when she clipped a 5 cent coupon and happily used it on a bag of sugar. Little did she know that things have changed so much that her daughter would one day have to teach a class on using coupons! Mother, I hope I am making you proud.
My first class will be at my school. I am hoping to teach one at church soon as well. People have asked me if I fear letting everyone in on my secrets. ~ Fearing that would cut down on my available bargains. Well, if you would see my stockpile you would know that I shouldn't worry about not cashing in on every deal. I can pick and choose at this point, and if I miss one or two, I will be more than fine.
This has taken quite a bit of work though. I wanted my Power Point to be good and informative. I named it "Couponing 101", but I think it covers more than a 101 class would!
I will let you all know how it goes.
