Pinch Pennies to Stretch Your Budget
Because college is expensive enough, students have to save money wherever they can. Here are a few tips to stretch your dollars.
1. Prepare a budget and live with it. Write every expense down in your journal. You’ll be surprised to see where your money is going.
3. Use mail-in rebates as often as possible.
5. Learn to cook if you don’t already know how. Start with quick and easy meals and develop your style.
6. Shop clearance sales.
9. Think of different ways to acquire college necessities like renting books instead of buying them. Check out sites like www.CollegeBookRenter.com and others.
Pinch a few pennies here and there, then reward yourself with a trip to the spa or a night out with friends and family.
