Kasey Trenum of Time2Save Explains the Truth About Couponing During the Naples Daily News Women Today Expo, Oct. 1, 2011

Ketchup changed mom Kasey Trenum’s life. During the inaugural Women Today expo in Estero, Fla., today, she shared how purchasing the condiment for 16 cents during a grocery store sale changed her family’s life for the better. Kasey and friend Kelly Thompson founded Time2Save and blog daily on time2saveworkshops.com where it’s about using coupons smart in order to save money and enjoy life. Couponing is also about giving back.

We’re in a struggling economy and everyone is impacted, including me. How does couponing relate to travel? The more I save on everyday needs such as groceries, cleaning supplies and health and beauty products, the more I money I can put toward travel.

Couponers are Not Like Those Shown on Television

Think couponing is like what’s featured on TLC’s Extreme Couponing? Think again. Trenum emphasizes when couponing, it’s important to find a balance and one needs to consider the price versus the cost. You can find a great deal on something but what is the cost of what you’re giving up to get that 50 cents off? There’s a cost to dumpster-diving for coupons (which Trenum does not recommend).

Trenum travels the country offering couponing seminars but for those who aren’t able to attend can visit and subscribe to time2saveworkshops.com to learn tricks of the trade including changing your mindset about couponing, how to get started, and how to use sales and coupon matchups at specific stores.

Also, All You Magazine is a great source for coupons and if purchased through time2saveworkshops.com, $12 from a $30, two-year subscription will aide Tennessee tornado victims.

Musical Performer Casey Weston from NBC’s “The Voice” Returned Home

If you watched NBC’s “The Voice” this year then certainly you know who 18-year-old Casey Weston is. If not, the resident of Naples was a Top 8 Finalist on the popular television show and has since moved to Nashville to pursue her musical career. She’s a singer and songwriter and performed popular songs as well as original material to adoring fans. She’s the girl next door (no, not one of Hugh’s) but the girl who’s a strong role model for today’s youth.

But Wait, There Was More!

Admission into the Women Today expo was only $6 and the couponing presentation definitely paid for that and everything else was icing on the cake including a fun session with Dr. Lori, a nationally recognized antique appraiser with an awesome sense of humor, and the businesses and services who exhibited.

The event was held at Germain Arena and kicked off Thursday, Sept. 29, with the Relish Magazine Cooking Show, followed with the expo on Friday, Sept. 30. I found the expo valuable and hope it continues to grow.
