Guide for Penny Pinchers
Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton has launched a new Guide for Penny Pinchers, it is designed to connect Wisconsin consumers with information they need to help save money on gas and traveling, home energy, prescription drugs, health care, college tuition, back-to-school savings and more.  The website says "Using Wisconsin's public libraries is a great way for people to stretch their dollars.  Many libraries offer free programs for all kinds of interests (classes, entertainment, story time, teen programs, etc.)"  The site also recommends use of BadgerLink. The new online resource serves as an aggregator of helpful state and federal government information as well as links to useful private-sector and news websites.
