If you want to decrease your expenses and increase your savings in 2009, please join us for “Simple Ways to Save Money”. This class is being provided for FREE to St. Charles parishioners. Come learn how easy it is to spend less without changing what you currently buy or where you buy it – the important thing is how. Topics to be discussed will be price matching, becoming a preferred shopper, couponing and other simple techniques to save you money. Date, time and classroom location will be provided in the near future. If you have any questions please contact Kathy Church at 623-878-4708 or by email at KathyChurch@YourSensibleSpending.com. Thank you.
Our coupon trading box is a huge success thanks to everyone that has donated, clipped and sorted. But it seems that parishioners canʼt find what they want or they donʼt have enough time to look or they just donʼt use coupons, so currently there are more donators than users. The new change will help these issues and allow parishioners to request the specific coupons they want. This will allow you to receive your own envelope with only the coupons you want and need. The coupon box will still remain in the church foyer for everyoneʼs use but this change will make the process user-friendly. And extra coupons remaining after our parishionersʼ selections are made, will be used in a monthly paid coupon service that will be offered to non-parishioners so that our expended community can benefit as well. In the coming weeks look for product selection sheets near the coupon box and please fill one out and drop it in the sealed box next to the trading box. If you have questions or suggestions email KathyChurch @YourSensibleSpending.com or call 623-878-4708. Thank you.
