Want to Save Money for the Holidays?

It's not too late to start attending the Tulare County Library's "Stretching the Food Dollar" programs to save extra dollars for holiday needs!  Keep on attending and saving into the new year with new programs like Budget Meal Planning and Personal Finance.

The informational series is held every other Friday from 3:00 to 5:00pm in the Visalia Branch Blue Room.  The programs being offered are:

Couponing                                        October 24 through
November 21
These workshops will cover topics such as coupon math, price matching and adhering to coupon policies.

Budget Meal Planning                            January 16 through March
This series will focus on how to make a food budget stretch and plan your family meals to be inexpensive, healthy and easy to prepare.

Personal Finance                                        March 27 through
May 22
These programs focus on how to manage your money a little better to make ends meet.

Can't meet on Fridays? Check out the Stretching the Food Dollar Book Club on the first Wednesday night of the month (except in April, meeting on April 8th) at 6:30 p.m. in the Blue Room of the Visalia Branch. Book selections are available for checkout at the Reference Desk. The next book club meeting is November 5th where readers will discuss The Complete Idiot's Guide to Couponing.

This project is supported by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian. All library patrons are welcome to attend and registration is not necessary.  Add these programs to your schedule and save enough money to go out and celebrate your savings!
