If you're a local I've finally nailed down the details for my first workshop. Thanks to all of you who gave me ideas. It was SO helpful. I've limited class size to ONLY 12 because I want it to be small enough to be able to get comfortable and talk and share ideas. So if you are interested call the Longview Parks and Rec department (360.442.5400) to sign up. I'm sure we'll fill up fast. Here are the details...
LOWER YOUR HOUSEHOLD BUDGET...
Gayle Bryant, Common Cents columnist for the Daily News and author of the website The Grocery Cart Challenge will be teaching you tips and tricks to cut your household budget.

You'll get to sample some frugal foods and go home with recipes and resources to lower your budget. Bring three empty refillable spray bottles, fee includes all other supplies. Cost is $20 plus a $10 supply fee. Saturday, June 26th from 10-noon.
