I think these are the funnest classes ever to teach. For the last two years, i have been teaching a class once a year for a program at "Your Pregnancy Resource Center" . The girls that attend are in a Supermoms class. I am also a participant. I found out i was pregnant last February and have been going ever since. It is a blast. All of the girls and people there just love it when i teach the class. Looking forward to doing one tomorrow.

If you don't like teaching at the food pantry because "those people" aren't as appriciative, you can still teach a free class, just try to do it at the library instead.

I taught my first class at a food bank and charged $5. (part went to the food bank) When they announced my class, they told them up front that $5. would be worth the savings using coupons.

Last week I reached out to several different org to try to "market" my class. I am very un-impressed with the lack of returned phone calls, and people acting like how dare I offer a coupons class. However, the lady from DHS was thrilled, and I will be teaching several class through DHS for no charge.

The ladies at my bank are wanting me to come and teach them. I'm going down there next Friday... already in a panic about what info to gather and figure up a lesson plan.... I figure I will have to go again in a week or so afterwards to follow up with questions and maybe some more advanced ideas.

Great job ladies! I've got to get the ball rolling on mine. We've got my website started: couponseminars.com I hope I've not posted anything I shouldnt, if I have please feel free to delete.

I owe all I've learned to AFC! that's for sure! I think my first few ones will be for free at the food bank b/c that'll help calm my nerves and i can get my speech smooth. you know?

thanks for all the tips!

HI
A bunch of girls at church are wanting me to teach a class on couponing; but I am not sure where to begin. Do you have some handouts or anything that I could use to get started?

thats awesome! I am getting ready to teach my first one - I'm not going to to charge - for this one, but I am thinking of charging for the following ones. I want to get one under my belt to get my whole lesson plan together, but I think after that I will charge and give everyone a coupon starter kit that has an organizer and maybe some coupons already cut. that way they spend money and I get paid for the class, but also they get something from it they can physically take away.

I have real mixed feelings about teaching a class. I love to help people especially those that are in real need. But I have a hard enough time finding products on the shelf to buy without having to compete with even more folks. If you don't shop here within the first 48 hours you won't find anything left in any store. Most items don't last past the first day and are rarely restocked that I find anyway. Besides I've only been couponing a year. At this point, I'd just like someone to clip and file for me in their spare time and then I'd share the coupons and the info on deals and even take them with me to shop for themselves. I think my niece is going to do it once she gets past foot surgery on Friday. But I applaud all you who are sharing your wealth of knowledge and information. Wish I could attend one of your classes. I could probably learn a great deal.

JCGirl, have you every tried getting Rainchecks? I LOVE rainchecks because my CVS, Winn Dixie, Publix and all my other stores are the same way. BUT when I get the rainchecks I can take my time getting what I need and if a better coupon comes out the next week, the better the savings!!

I'm thinking about doing it too. I've had several friends that have asked me to teach a class. Need to find the time to do it soon. I'm not going to charge either. I just want to be able to help someone else save a few dollars maybe too.

unfortunately, RCs don't work for RR deals at WAG. Although there are some who are lucky to get an RC less the RR value to get the item free BUT limit is 1 Most stores will give RCs for the price of the item (usually reg price) but that won't do any good after week of the promo since RRs cannot be force printed like what they do at CVS.

as PP stated above, it is good to share info but for small towns with limited stores, one has to weigh the chances of ever finding items on the shelves if more and more people learn the tricks of couponing like the pros. One thing to remember also is when ppl are taught to print at the library, think if there will be enough prints for all? Just a thought.

@jgtaxi-
Hello!
Where are you from!

I'm from CA and was wondering if you'd be willing to teach me some things about couponing? I've been reading on the firms and threads and really want to get this all down! I can give you my email address, number etc...? Maybe you can school me over the phone : ) I'm pretty overwhelmed at this point and would love some direction !

Thanks so much, and I look forward to hearing from you!

P.S. Ok I'm lying about being pretty overwhelmed...I'm REALLY overwhelmed!
