I've already written about a way to get free directory assistance and driving instructions, but here is another one worth checking out: 1-800-GOOG-411. Brought to us from our friends at Google. This is not a new service, but one that could help you out when you need to find a shoe maker to fix your high heel that you broke on the way to the Academy Awards.
Check out the video. For specific info, go to the 1-800-GOO-411 site.
Thanks to Nancy for reminding me of this money saving tip.
