Couponing Class

Times are tough and money is tight, but that doesnt mean you have to sacrifice everything. A Couponing: Frugal Living for Big Spending class at Ashland Community and Technical College can help you stretch each dollar to its maximum potential.

Experienced couponer Melinda Hester will share tips and techniques to organize coupons, maximize their value and keep up with changes to couponing rules. She has a couponing column in The Independent.

Participants will also find out how coupons can help pay for vacations and other extras all year long. These tips are ready to use right after each class and sometimes can even be used during class.

Those who have dabbled in couponing can learn to build a routine that saves them money every week. People who do not normally use coupons for themselves can learn about couponing as a way to help community food banks, church food pantries and other community service organizations.

Held Thursdays, Sept 6-27, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., the class is $19. Tips from this class might help you save that much every week. Enroll through ACTC Community Education 606-326-2072 or 606-326-2129, email: as_LLL@kctcs.edu.
