    As you know I am on a very fixed income. I am on disability at least until 2015. I owe a far amount on my credit card. I have been thinking about taking distance education courses to get my certificate as an office assistant. I was one for several years, but after that job I couldn't find...

  4. Question and Answer
    Need to cancel my Verizon LD phone service for my land line (they charge $5.00 per month even if you don't make any calls) and find a zero per month carrier. (I use my cell for LD calls.) Thought I had found one: * No monthly fee * No federal taxes, etc (these charges are a percentage of your...

    If you do a lot of long-distance calling, you can cut that cost dramatically. One way to do this is with a 10-10 service. This means you have to dial a bunch more numbers, but this can reduce your long distance charges to as little as 2.5 cents per minute. However, you have to shop carefully...
  6. Relationships
    What are you thoughts on this? I met someone about five years ago, as friends only, and now since my divorce he has told me how many feelings he has had for me since we met face to face. I really love this guy a lot and would love to spend the rest of my life with him. We are planning on him...
  7. Discount Stores
    Found an Aldi's somewhat near me. 32 miles. Is the saving at this store worth the drive? I've never been to this store so I know nothing about it. There is just my dh and I, 1 large dog and 2 foundling cats. Thanks for any information.

    I downloaded Skype about a month ago and finally used it for the first time yesterday.  I talked to my friend Susan for over an hours (she is 2000kms away) and it didn't cost either of a penny!  The quality was good overall, it did fade in and out a little at times but we could always hear each...

    If you registered with the class action Lawsuit Cromwell v. Sprint make sure you look for a Sprint envelope and DON'T THROW IT AWAY thinking it's junk mail. In it is a calling card for $50 as per the settlement. I just about ripped the envelope in half and tossed it thinking it was just junk.

  14. Education
    The boys and I went to a seminar put on by this company: We are going to try and do some of the boys college courses at home, through internships and through portfolio evaluations. It is a very attractive option for us since it saves us time, loads of...

    I am considering using phone cards for out of state long distance rather than carrying it on my phone. I'm currently seeing how much this will save per month. I think it's at least $10/mo. The only people I call out of state are my parents once a week, so I think this will work out nicely. I'm...

    Hi all -- I'm a reporter for Dow Jones, and I'm writing about ways to save on long distance bills. One thing I've run across is people who say they have totally ditched their long-distance carrier, and instead only use their cell phone minutes and calling cards (the kind you buy at CVS for...
