Frugal Forum July 21, 2013

When we are young we could get the child menu pricing at some restaurants and as you get older maybe the student discount, hit 55 and some stores start to give you a senior discount. What special quality do you have that could save you money? Is there a group or club that you belong to that gives discounts to their members? Even your work would be a place to check out for group deals. Don’t forget to check your health insurance plan for additional discounts on preventative maintenance programs like gym memberships. Take any savings whenever you can get it and just ask all they can say is no.
