From using the Internet to a new consumer magazine
called Boston Consumers' Checkbook, you can save
yourself thousands of dollars a year by doing a bit
of comparison shopping, on everything from bank
services to groceries. To save on bank fees in
Massachusetts, for instance, you can go to the state
division of bank's checking account comparison Web
site, at http://db.state.ma.us/dob/banksmain2.asp.
Or you can subscribe to the no-advertising Boston
Consumers Checkbook and get the Summer/Fall 2003
issue released today, with its bank service
comparison and rating. The non-profit organization
that publishes national and regional Checkbook
magazines also offers free on its Web site,
www.checkbook.org, an article entitled "How To Get a
Great Price on Just About Anything."
