JACKSONVILLE, FL. (February 25, 2013) —Savings.com announced today that Valpak of Jacksonville has signed as a major sponsor of the Grocery Savings classes in Jacksonville. The Grocery Savings classes, powered by Savings.com, are part of a nationwide movement that has already empowered more than 3,000 families to cut their grocery expenses by 50-70 percent. The sponsorship further demonstrates Valpak’s commitment to the community by helping consumers make smart purchasing decisions.

Karen Rodriguez, founder of Saving The Family Money, will teach the two-hour Grocery Savings class. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to shop with coupons using strategic couponing and menu planning techniques and how to achieve savings of 50 percent or more. As the major sponsor, Valpak will raise awareness for the classes via a marketing promotion to local residents and by hosting the class at the Valpak offices.

“We are committed to making a positive difference in people’s lives by promoting smart spending behaviors and by ending wasteful ones,” said Ken Harrivel, Valpak of Jacksonville. “Groceries are an area of the family budget where there is a lot of opportunity to save, and with the cost of groceries continuing to skyrocket, we really wanted to be involved. Karen Rodriguez’s coupon classes provide phenomenal tools and support to help achieve real results.”

“The coupon classes are important for our communities because it changes the way consumers think about spending and saving money,” said Karen Rodriguez. “I am thrilled to have Valpak on board as a sponsor. In addition to being one of the largest and most reputable brands in the industry, they also care about the community, and we have a shared goal of helping to make a difference in people’s lives. We will be able to reach more people and hold more classes thanks to Valpak.”

The Grocery Savings class will be held on March 7, and it is free to all attendees who register in advance. Attendees can register at SavingTheFamilyMoney.com/Valpak.
