Never again want to pay for toothpaste, soap or shaving cream? You don’t have to. Laura shares tips on how to stretch your dollar using coupons and other tricks.

What are the rules of couponing and how can you prevent being fooled into buying a more expensive item? In this fast-moving, fun workshop, you’ll learn how to play the grocery game step-by-step and increase your buying power by 30% or more. Laura loves answering questions, so come ready to fire away.
