"Coupon Lady" Coming To Greenville

The woman who says she can help you cut your grocery bills in half is holding a workshop in Greenville Saturday.

Faye Prosser shared many of her coupon-clipping secrets with WITN News at Sunrise last summer. Prosser, who lives in Clayton, NC, says she'll be in Greenville for a workshop this Saturday.

The workshop will be at St. James United Methodist Church from 10 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Saturday. The workshop costs $15 per person or $20 for a couple. St. James United Methodist Church is on Sixth St. in Greenville.

Pre-registration is required. People who are interested are asked to contact Sharon Beemiller at (304) 279-4142 or email sharon@greenvillemommies.com.

The workshop is hosted by the Greenville Mommies.

    I don't think $15 is too much to pay a consultant for learning techniques on how to save money; some people truly don't know how to shop, spend & save wisely. BUT, I am shocked at some of the comments here. Being a member of one of the named boards here, I was embarrassed that my own moderator felt the need to refer to people who don't live, breathe and die by every couponing golden rule that is put forth & endorsed by one person somehow makes them "dumb". What works for one person doesn't always apply to everyone else. Sure you can use some tips, tricks and techniques from any published methodology about being money savvy, but that doesn't mean that all those are going to work for everyone in every situation. You have to have a little compassion & understanding for others and their accomplishments, whether it's as profound as yours or not. Treating your fellow consumer with any less respect is a disgrace & a character trait that no amount of coupons or discounts is going to buy you.

    Look at what people are saying about coipuns and what they are buying...3 window cleaners, mustard, 3 applesauces, BBQ sauces, 3 carpet freshers..and so on..great, so you got a good deal..but are these items that you actually need and use? Do you really 3 carpet freshers, brand name?? Coupns are for specific items, only, usually having to buy 2 or more of a product to get a discount. Personally, I save more money buy shopping sale adds and Walmart ( yes, I hate the place, too, but you have to admit you do save $$). And where are the fresh food coupns? I can stockpile my pantry with cereal boxes and pasta sauces and things I may use one day, but just to have a deal? I don't think so. Enjoy your class. To each his own. Just know htere are other save to save money and purchase what you really need and use. :)

    Where are the coupons for fresh produce, milk and meats? Coupons are for prepackaged goods (Rice a Roni, sauces, things I usually don't buy) and shampoos and toothapastes. Sure, I save a little with some coupons, like health and beauty and paper goods, but as far as foods, you basically have to be willing to buy and eat/like what the coupons are for.

    Way to go MOMMY insulting all of those hard working moms out there that have no choice but to put their kids in daycare. -100 points for your Karma. Coupon Mom also allows you to print coupons. I spent $67 today on a cart full of groceries that was $130 before store card and coupons, from Coupon mom. Boo-yah

    First of all Greenvillemommies is just hosting the event, I am part of the group and we all were very interested in saving money with how todays economy is. I am a stay at home mom because I couldn't imagine spending $165 a week to have someone else watch my child and neglect her. This said I do whatever I have to do to save money. It is sad to me that a lot of people in this area eat out, stop already go home, cook a meal, sit down and talked to your family. I only allow my child to eat fast food on occasion I couldnt imagine her eating fast food every night. I think the $15 is well worth the chance to learn how to save more money. Sorry to all the haters out there but FAye is drving 1 1/2 hours to get here and the workshop is 3 1/2 hrs long would you give up your saturday for nothing. She is not making much off of our workshop at all.

    I really do mean well. I get motivated. I clip coupons, put them in an envelope and then forget there existance until I am pulling into the grocery parking lot.

    I ordered binder supplies from Faye and I was so jealous of her "job". The tabs are stupendous and she is wonderful for thinking of a way to stay home with her family and still make money! I keep thinking what can I do? I have people in Louisburg where I work ask me all the time if I would hold classes for a fee. They are so jealous of the amount of money I spend on tons of groceries. I estimate I save about 800/1,00 dollars a month. Last year at this time I would go to Target and spend 250 dollars a week. Now if I spend more than 60 it is weird. I have a baby and a 3 year-old so that is including diapers and all that baby stuff. If you think I wouldn't pay $15 dollars to learn that-YOU ARE CRAZY! Love savvydollar!!

    Mommie Dearest - I'm not a member of Greenville Mommies. If I choose to go to Faye's class, then the fee would be well worth it.

    Actually "Mommie Dearest" I have no affiliation with this group or church that is sponsoring the event. Have no clue where the church is even at. I just wanted to give my opinion just as you have.
  • by lm Location: nc on May 28, 2009 at 06:26 PM
    The website I use is the one Tina mentioned - savvydollar.org. I find a lot of deals that I miss or that I can do when I have time to do the shopping.
