If you live in the Raleigh/Durham area and keep up with shopping, deals and coupons you probably know of Sue Stock. Sue Stock is the retail columnist for the Raleigh News and Observer. She also has a wonderful blog called, Taking Stock where she posts all latest deals and information on coupons.
This morning I had the pleasure of eating breakfast with Sue Stock at the Flying Biscuit in Cameron Village. I won a personal coupon session with Sue via her Twitter giveaway to celebrate her 1 year anniversary on Twitter. Needless to say I was totally stoked but I was also a little nervous. What would we talk about? I consider myself to be pretty coupon savvy so I didn’t have too many coupon related questions. But since she is a fellow blogger and professional journalist we talked a lot about blogging, her journalism history, deals we’ve found and just generally nerdy coupons stuff. It was awesome!
Two years ago I attended one of Sue’s coupon classes and like the hundred or so other thrifty women (and men) in attendance I soaked up all of her money saving tips. Since taking her class I have saved literally hundreds of dollars on not only my grocery bill but pretty much anything I buy. I highly recommend taking her class in November if you want to learn all the tips and tricks to saving money. There is a small fee to attend the 3-hour class but it primarily covers the cost of renting the space to host the event. But in my book it’s totally worth spending a few dollars to learn how to save hundreds.
Oh and if you’re wondering, yes she did use a coupon for breakfast!
