We are very excited to introduce a new resource to help you save even more money! We love being The Thrifty Couple and helping others learn from our mistakes while providing the tools and money-saving skills we have learned in our long journey from Deep in Debt to Debt Free! We have additionally loved hearing from each of you in how you have benefited and been impacted by our own mistakes, trials and financial/money-saving successes that we pass along to you! But now – we want to come out and meet you and provide you our hands-on advice, resources and tips to continue helping you save even more money!
One of our ongoing goals is to help as many as we can in as many ways as we can! We shared recently how Alex now works from home now and all of his work is computer/internet based. This means that we can travel and work from anywhere. So the next step in sharing our money saving tips, advice and resources is to be able to be out there, meeting you and sharing with you, your friends, family and neighbors in a money-saving or coupon class.
We have taught hundreds of classes since 2007 and took a break from teaching this past year, but we are ready to start up again – and this time not just in our own area, but all over! We are working these classes in some of our planned family travels to be able to come to many different areas! This means that a class could be available to you in your area!
What is a Coupon Class?
A coupon class is where we will spend around two hours teaching you the tricks of the trade, coupon organization, where to find coupons, how to use your coupons, how to find the deals, tips and tricks for shopping and help answer any questions or concerns that you or your guests may have!
What is a Money Saving Class?
This class provides information on general financial and household stewardship and covers topics such as budgeting, family and marital finances, ways to drop your budget and save more money, ways to earn extra income as a couple and family, how to meet financial goals, tips to becoming debt-free and more with Q&A! This class can also be customized to one category as desired.
How long is each class?
This will vary depending on what group we are sharing the information with and what topic is discussed. As a general rule, each class is generally just under two hours, but can be longer/shorter to meet the specific needs of the group!
How much is a class?
We will do our best to make the classes as cheap and even free when we can. Our goal is to help others as much as we can for as cheap as we can, but we generally ask for a $5 suggested donation per person with some classes requiring no charge at all – feel free to ask us for more details when you contact us.
Where are the classes held?
This is where we rely on you! We love to teach in homes in a more intimate setting, but we also love to speak to larger groups as well in any type of facility!
If I decide to host/organize a class, what is involved?
Very little really. It is just a matter of providing a facility (home, church, business, etc.) and inviting your friends, family, neighbors and/or coworkers to attend (we can provide you sample text to make it easier for you!).
We have a form that you can fill out below if you are interested in hosting or attending a class.
