Savings Nation Workshop Info and Giveaway

BeltwayBargainMom (aka, Laura Harders) is probably my favorite person in the world.  Calm, sweet, and just an all-around awesome Christian woman, she seems to juggle a career, children, homeschooling, and her website with ease that I can only wish I’ll one day possess.  Kind and even-tempered, when there’s the person I always go to for counsel when I have “blogger drama”.  (Blogger drama? Why yes, readers, I am that big of a dork.)
If I had to pick a teacher to walk me through something that can be, admittedly, a little complicated when you first look at it, I’d pick Laura.  And, lucky you (!!), she’s going to be teaching her first Savings Nation Workshop in Burke, Virginia on May 21st!!  In partnership with, Laura will be giving you the tools, information, and organizational strategies that will help you save up to 50% off your grocery bills!
(PS- I know it’s election season and you have people left and right telling you that either the economy is improving or that once you oust the old guy it’s going to improve.  Honey, it doesn’t matter, 50% off your groceries in an up OR down economy is 50% left in your account you can use on getting that pedicure at the end of a crazy week with your children.  Focus on the pedicure.  Even if you only coupon on your cleaning supplies, that’s a few extra Starbucks runs without guilt!!)
Want to go? Registration is just $5!!
