Webcasts & Videos
Visit my webcast page if you prefer to learn by watching me teach! I also have short YouTube videos you can watch if you’re short on time. Both webcasts and videos cover a range of topics including how to find and organize coupons, how to stockpile, coupon ethics, and more. The webcasts contain virtually the same information I’d rely in one of my more formal coupon classes.
