Southern Savers is offering an Extreme Couponing 101 Workshop on Oct. 16. Each workshop is a 2-3 hour class teaching consumers how to effectively use coupons to cut expenses.

Southernsavers.com is a free, online resource that helps consumers save the most money possible on grocery and personal care items. Consumers can shop at their regular stores, buy the food they normally eat and pay half of what they would normally pay.

The website offers information in one location. Doing the work for the consumer, the site offers a weekly list of items on sale at local grocery/drug stores and matches them with all available coupons. The consumer checks the items they want to buy then the website condenses chosen items into a printable grocery list.

The consumer prints coupons that match their chosen items right from Southernsavers.com then is ready to go shopping.

Southern Savers owner Jenny Martin said, “The average savings after attending a workshop is $250 a month for a family of four. This coupon savings can equal a 10-15 percent raise in the family budget. Learning how to save the money you already have is one of the best things you can do for your family in today’s economy."
