Saving money by reducing AOL service
I don't know how many of you have use AOL but it's NOT your ISP, but my fiance's family has a full AOL account, and they log onto the internet through their cable company. They're paying for two internet services because AOL is "easy to understand". Well, I called to cancel my PERSONAL AOL account the other day (because I don't use it; I live with them, and take advantage of their high speed internet connection) and they told me that a regular AOL account is something like $25. They said if you LOVE AOL and can't live without it (God only knows why that would be the case, but to each his own), and you ALSO have a broadband connection, you can just pay $9.95 a month and have the FULL AOL service. Also, if you can easily navigate the internet (his parents can't), or you don't want to change your e-mail address or screen name you can pay $4.95 to keep both and have access to it via aol.com. Of course they only make this information available to you if you're getting ready to cancel, but I thought I'd pass it along. ETA: I worked at a dayspa for a long time, and many times they have trainings for new stylists and they need models -- usually they will cut your hair for free and color it at minimal cost (usually you only pay for the product). I don't know about every city, but I know there are a few on Newbury Street in Boston that do this. Also under the Volunteers section on CraigsList, hairstylists will often advertise when they are doing this.
