Some of the advice Northwest Airlines offered to its laid-off airline employees in a pamphlet entitled "101 Ways to Save Money''. Other items on the list of money-saving tips included giving homemade cards and gifts, asking doctors for prescription-drug samples, borrowing a dress for "a big night out'', getting car parts out of the dump, and giving children hand-me-down toys and clothes.
