Now here’s a tip

• Mail service is a wonderful thing. Order what you want on the Internet, and it’s in your mailbox or on your doorstep tomorrow. From efficiency to penny pinching, you can use the mail to help out in numerous ways. Or, use it to bring a smile to someone’s face: Keep a stack of stamped postcards with you. Jot a note and mail one off whenever the mood strikes. I almost guarantee a great response from the recipient! Who doesn’t love real snail mail? – JoAnn

• “To save on prescription costs, ask if your health insurance participates in a mail-order service where you can get three months of a drug for a discounted cost. Mine costs less for three months than it does for one month in my local drugstore, and I don’t even have to go pick it up.” — B.W. in Virginia

• I love to shop, and for the best deals I go online to trusted e-retailers. When shopping online, don’t forget to factor in shipping and handling, as some companies offer free shipping on orders over a certain dollar amount; others don’t!

• “One of the greatest assets in our communities is the public library, and mine has just added a new service that I’m over the moon about: delivery! I can search the card catalog from home and have the books I want delivered right to my door. It’s so convenient.” — J.H. in Florida
