Couponing school opening in Fredericksburg

Local couponer Jennifer Barner is opening an office for her growing money saving classes.

Funwith Coupons, her company, has been offering “Couponing 101″ classes since March. She will open her office at 402 Westwood Office Park later this month, with a ribbon cutting on Aug. 31 at 2 p.m.

Barner offers classes from the novice to advanced levels and teaches students how to read coupons, how to combine coupons and different store coupon policies.

She will also have monthly give-back initiative, urging students to use coupons for donations to area food banks.

Barner was previously employed at a medical office. In 2013 she realized that she and her husband still weren’t making ends meet for themselves and their five children even though they both worked full-time jobs.

“I got into couponing and now its my full time job saving money, but even better [it's] helping others in need of saving money,” she said.
To contact Barner about classes, call 540-621-6401.
