Thank you to everyone who visited our booth at The Strawberry
Festival in April! The weather was perfect, we had a great turnout and
I really enjoyed meeting other smart spenders! Below is a picture of
our little booth in all its glory.
Many of the Smart Spending classes are also food drives and
participants bring food to donate to local food banks.
Here are some of the donations from a class in February 2012.
Participants donated over 200 lbs of food that day!
Comments from workshop participants:
and inspiring; I clipped, organized and saved oodles on noodles
-- as well as lots of other pantry staples!
You will be pleased to learn that I am sharing the knowledge
with clients so they too can shop smarter and save money
weekly. Great information. Great sense of humor. Great job!"

"Faye, WOW is all I can say! What a great presentation with
TONS of information. You wouldn't believe how excited and
amazed all of the participants have been since your
presentation. Thank you, thank you for taking the time to talk to

Esteban attended a Smart Spending workshop on December 1,
2007. Here is what he had to say about the class and his savings
"That was he best $15 I've spent in a while. This weekend
grocery shopping, I've saved $16 using coupons.
For the CVS coupon (prescription transfer coupon) you gave me,
I used that to buy toiletries at CVS worth $20 -- I still have $5 in
the card. I used my doctor's discount card word $30. Instead of
paying $45 for my medicine I paid $15.
I used an Amazon coupon worth $25 at Amazon, so instead of
paying $30 for the HP inkjet cartridges I paid $5. I got that free
shipping Amazon prime ($75 yearly subscription) so its free
shipping. A total of $90 savings this weekend. My wife and I
love you and the work you are doing!!!"
-Esteban Culiat, December 4, 2007
wonderful your class was, so you may get some requests for your
yahoo groups. I am heading to Walgreens today to get a free
Airwick air freshener thanks to all your helpful advice on
Saturday. Thank you so much for sharing all your knowledge on
how to save money. You are a true blessing."
"I LOVED taking your class last night in Clayton. You are such
an inspiration! I am going to utilize coupons more than ever
and follow as many of your moves as I can. I was thrilled to
attend and can’t wait to get my binder all organized, save money
and pay off DEBT!"
-Laura Yates, NC, Raleigh, NC, November 2006
"I would like to let you know that I have taken Faye Prosser’s
class and absolutely loved it. She taught us how to save at least
50% or more off of our grocery bill. With the money I saved, my
husband and I were able to take our three children to Walt
Disney World for 10 days!!!! I would put the difference of what
the total bill was and what I actually paid in a savings account
and in a little over a year’s time, we had enough to go for 10
days! And yes, even then I used her ideas to save even more
money and still enjoy ourselves while down there. I use coupons
every week and have had several stores even have to PAY ME to
buy the items I have purchased. I know her system works because
thanks to her I can stay at home with my three children(one of
whom is disabled). For that, I am very grateful to her. She is a
great inspiration to those of us who know her!"
-Muriel Watson, Clayton, NC, May 2006
"My name is Melissa and I took your class a couple of weeks ago
at JCC. I wanted to let you know that I have only been
couponing for three weeks and have saved $211.43. We will be
applying that savings towards the price of a freezer. Thanks so
-Melissa, Clayton, NC, November 2006
" I wanted to thank you for such a great class, the overload of
info and fantastic coupons. I have been personalizing my binder
every spare minute and can't wait to use it. I have a feeling it
will make the whole couponing process alot easier for me. And
to anyone that is thinking about taking the class, it is definitely
worth it. Definitely worth it for the laughs, knowledge and
binder :) So thanks again Faye!"
-Lisa Holden, Wake Forest, NC, November 2006
"I’ve taken Faye Prosser’s class on saving money when grocery
shopping. I use her ideas for a coupon notebook and clip
coupons each week. I’ve learned the importance of looking for
the sale items on things I buy/need and using double coupons in
conjunction with the sale. I’ve been able to save a lot of money
through this process. I work full-time outside the home and it is
worth my time to use the smart-spending system that I learned in
Faye’s class. I would recommend this method to anyone…unless
you prefer to pay full-price for all your groceries!"
"Been couponing for 3 months now since taking Faye’s class. I
used to spend approx $200 wk for my family - now I rarely spend
$50. I make my grocery list/meal plan by what is on sale or what
I already have (which is a lot, since I stock up when I find a
good deal). I spend less than an hour a week clipping,
organizing coupons & making my list. I figure I am paying
myself $150 an hour for this service since that is what I now
save each week."
-Brenda, Clayton, NC
"I want to thank Faye. It was SO nice to meet you and you were
just as sweet in person as you seem on TV. Thanks again for all I
have learned. I think the binder system is just the most incredible
way to organize coupons, and I never could figure it out until I
ordered one. SO glad I did."
-Detra, Spartanburg, SC
"Before I started couponing, I always felt like I was pouring
money down the drain at the grocery store. Now seeing how
much I can save is like a sport! I can't get over the fact that in
one short month (I took Faye's class on Jan. 31), I am saving
HUGE DOLLARS on groceries, toiletries and household
products! I told my husband last night after getting $123.94 in
groceries for $63.52, that I felt like I have been wasting so much
money for so many years! Thanks again for your willingness to
share all you've learned about couponing and smart shopping. I
finally feel like I've got control over our spending."
-Keicha Berzins, Willow Springs, NC
"I saved 50% off on my first shop! I can't tell you how excited I
am! My husband scoffed at the idea of me walking around with
this binder full of coupons when I started this adventure. Now
that he's seen the grocery receipts, he said he promises to never
make another snide remark about my thriftiness again."

November 3, 2005, by Jennifer Konkol. Jennifer attended a
Smart Spending Workshop the week before writing her article.
for everyone that was there. I have heard people talking about it
every day since then. It has really spread like wildfire around
the church. Everyone is comparing savings all the time. My
next goal is to set up a coupon swap sometime during the
summer. Your class is such a gold mine of information."
