The start of school is creeping up! Check out the deals here at Office Depot!
August 28th from 10 a.m. to noon, there will be a coupon class open to the public at Orcutt Baptist Church in Newport News.
The church has been gracious enough to open it’s doors to the public. There will be 10 spaces available for A Frugal Chick readers who live in the area to attend. You MUST sign up for this class, there will be no walk-ins accepted as we have limited space and there will be limited materials. The cost is $10 per person.
Each class participant receives a workbook, some starter coupons and atleast one attendee will receive a coupon oriented door prize. Here are some of the topics we discuss:
Sources for Coupons
Drug Store Deals
Local Farmers Markets
Uses for Expired Coupons
… and much more!
If you are interested in attending, please contact me. I can send you all of the specifics on payment information. I think you will find the class fun and informative and I am very excited to be able to meet some readers from the other side of town.
I look forward to teaching on how to save some big money!

LOTS of Buy One Get One Free Deals!
I have gotten dozens of e-mails from Frugal Chick readers about Groupon.
I have to be honest- I have never paid much attention to it before. But send me enough e-mails and I start investigating.
Here is how Groupon Works:
Basically, major cities throughout the country (and overseas) have daily Groupon deals. The deals change every day and range from food to spas to hotels. Each deal throughout the week lasts for 24 hours. In order for the deal to go through, a select, predetermined number of people have to purchase the deal. Once the predetermined number of people have purchased the deal, the deal is “on”. Groupon has gotten VERY popular, so most of the deals go through. However, if one doesn’t go through, you will not be charged since you are not charged until the deal is on.
So click here to find Find Today’s Daily Deal for the Best in Hampton Roads! with Groupon. If you haven’t used Groupon before, just click on “Sign In” and you can get a new account set up.
If you aren’t in Hampton Roads, just sign up and then change the town to whatever is nearest to you!
I will try to post the best Groupon Deals I see around the country each day as we learn about Groupon together!
