To save money, always use the Internet as your first source for directory assistance.  It is quick and easy to find phone numbers for stores, doctors and other services. If you use an operator or directory service, you will be charged a fee.  However, it is a good idea to keep a phone book in your car , in case you have to look up a number and your cell phone can't do it.  Anything you can do to avoid using directory service is thrift friendly.
