Scams, Plans, and Living on a Shoestring

Have you ever been scammed? Did you fall for some trick online or elsewhere that ended up costing you money or grief?  At AASCEND‘s October 17 meeting we’ll be talking about ways to recognize trick deals so that you don’t fall for them. Bring your experiences to the meeting and we can all learn from each other. 

Next we’ll talk about “living on a shoestring”, how to eat and keep clothes on your back and a roof over your head for very little money — in one of the most expensive places to live in the US, the San Francisco Bay Area. How do you pay less for food and clothes? Do you have any tricks to keep your costs down? What about sources of financial aid? Most of us have a lot of experience with these problems, so let’s pass our helpful tips on to each other!
