Cheapskates One Day Workshop

Cath Armstrong,  long time star of A Current Affair will be holding a one day workshop next month.   I will be a guest speaker sharing all my grocery tips.  This is an amazing opportunity to find out how we live so well on a small budget.  You'll meet lovely like minded people,  have the chance to ask lots of questions and learn how to save hundreds or maybe thousands of dollars a year.  

I've been to a few of Cath's workshops and I highly recommend them as a life changing opportunity.

The Art of Living the Cheapskates Way 1 Day Workshop

Come along and join us for a day of fun, frivolity, food and frugality as we refine the Art of Living the Cheapskates Way.

    1. Aly, what state or city do you live in ? There could be workshops in other states some time in the near future.

  4. Hi Wendy - great news. Unfortunately I have other plans and can't make it - but wish you all the best for the day. I'm sure after recent press with Current Affair there will be lots of interest. Tina xx

  5. I can't wait! I'm so excited! I just paid for a spot now. I'm so interested in learning new things and becoming a lot more frugal and safe to say CHEAPSKATE! My friend still thinks I'm crazy that I buy so many boxes of morning fresh every time they're on sale... I just think he needs to learn how to be frugal and cheap too haha

    1. Anne, that's so exciting. Please come and say hello to me on the day. xoxo

  6. Hi Wendy, I have been reading your blog since January and am very inspired :) I am planning to come to this day, but just having trouble signing up on the Cheapskates website right now - will keep trying, Nerida

    1. Try emailing Cath if you still have trouble. I think the email is info@cheapskates.com
