If you are looking to find helpful workshops, you should check out Lowe's and Home Depot both of which are regularly offering free classes on home improvement projects. The Alabama Cooperative Extension Office is another place that is out there ready to offer information.
I will put many of these talks and workshops up on FrugalAuburn.com's Calendar. But I thought I'd go ahead and list some of my sources so that you know where to find the information for yourself and I highly encourage everyone to take advantage and to listen to those who speak. You never know what you might hear!
