    Free Stuff and /discounts – Content by Judy

So, I’ve come up with this list of discounts and free stuff for seniors, veterans and everyone else. And remember if you don’t ask you miss out.

    2. Facebook has any number of resale/yard sale pages.

    8. Save 5-10% off your auto ins for taking a driving class – check senior center for AARP class.

    10. Prescription assistance for non-covered unaffordable meds – ask at your doctor’s office and ask your pharmacist.
    11. Legal assistance is available from several resources. Call 1-800-296-1467 or 1-800-453-3320 to get started.
