Time2SaveWorkshops Coupon Class Tonight

Tonight is the night...

Have you ever heard of someone going to the grocery store and saving tons of money and then asked yourself "How did they do that?"

If you have, then you are in luck. There just so happens to be a couponing class TONIGHT that promises to teach us the Tips and Tricks of saving money at the register. And who does not need to save money this day and time? They are even giving us a little detailed booklet to take home! I'm so excited! Ok, so it doesn't take much to make me happy. I already have this huge grin on my face just thinking about what that little booklet may hold inside. Oh what joy my coupons bring to me! I know the idea of receiving your very own little booklet has you asking "Just when and where is this class?" So glad you asked...

Getting to Know You!

Well, I guess Introductions are in order, Good Afternoon Macon, GA!!! I'm Nicole. This last week I attended as many Cherry Blossom events as possible and I must say I don't regret it at all. I enjoyed the long lunch break I took to eat ice cream at Third Street Park. I screamed at the top of my lungs at the Coca-Cola stage, and even ventured into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. All in all it was a great week.

I found a new guilty pleasure store in Envie on the corner of Cotton and 2nd! And aside from the pollen attack I had an exciting time. I never realized how large of a production Cherry Blossom Festival was. The parade showcased many businesses I didn't know existed, and of course the community response was overwhelming. If I can just jump on my community soapbox a minute. Support your local businesses, they are gold mines of culture. Ok stepping down now.
