Remember to look into your local Technical High School. Ours has a bakery, open to the public once a week with inexpensive and delicious baked goods. You can even order birthday cakes from there.

We have even gotten automotive repairs and auto body work done just for the price of parts by taking our car to the local Community college auto repair school. They have always treated us fairly and of course they are being graded so they do a really good job! Just keep in mind you might have to schedule in advance so the instructor can work it into his classes.
Using a cosmetology school for spa and beauty treatments can be a great way to get yourself pampered inexpensively. This is a guide about visit cosmetology schools for pampering.
I am a student at a local technical college. At the college we have Dental radiology and cosmetology. These groups are always looking for outside people to use in their practicums. At our school Dental exams are about $15 and this includes the dental x-rays. In the cosmetology department they offer facials for $5, haircut (no style) for $5, Sculptured nails for $10 (full set) and many more things under $20. All of these are done by students graduating that quarter and an instructor is observing the whole time. You may want to call around to your local tech school to see if they offer the same thing.
