Editor's note: The following is a press release from the Fox Valley Park District.
“Super Coupon Queen” Jill Cataldo is returning to town in December and January for a pair of workshops full of money-saving tips.
Cataldo will host “Super Couponing” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6 and “Super Couponing 2: Saving on Everything!” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10. Both workshops will be held at the Eola Community Center, 555 S. Eola Road, in Aurora.
In a follow-up to her prior appearances at the Prisco Center that drew 300 people, Cataldo will be offering advanced tips on cutting grocery bills, including information on how the year-long pricing cycle works and the best times to purchase certain products.
In addition, Cataldo will explain strategies on how to find the best bargains on clothing, household and family items. Attendees will learn which months are best to buy certain types of clothing and glean insights on seasonal bargains, clearance and online shopping.
Cataldo, the founder of Super-Couponing®, has been featured regularly on network television and writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column – The Coupon Queen – that is read by more than 20 million people each week. ABC’s Nightline labeled her “Dear Abby” with coupons.
Each week, she reports the best grocery deals and coupon savings in Chicagoland on her blog – which pulls in more than 30,000 readers – and her DVD is a best seller.
Cataldo’s workships will be geared toward those who have no idea how to do couponing; she says the principles of couponing can be learned within an hour and practiced one or two hours a week.
Admission is $5 for residents and $7 for non-residents. Pre-registration is encouraged to assure admission. If space allows, day-of tickets will be available at the door. For information, contact Lisa Peterson at 630-978-3595.
