Fru-Gal Column April 21

I am so excited about last Sunday’s paper. There was over $200 in coupons. If you haven’t started what I call your couponing journey now is the time. On April 14, I taught a couponing class at Central library with great attendance. People were very excited to learn how to save. I learned some things myself. Coming together as a community to learn how to save is a mission for me along with my wonderful supporter University of Kentucky’s Fayette County Extension Homemakers. The Homemakers offer many terrific and many free programs. You can become a member for just $8 and be able to participate in all these wonderful activities for example this month they are offering Cooking for 1 or 2, teaching you cooking techniques leaving you without large quantity of leftovers. Call (859) 257-5582 to reserve your spot and invite a friend.
