YOU'RE AMAZING! !😍😊 Reply Candid Tales says: August 13, 2017 at 10:18 pm Another tip for textbooks: Sometimes the textbooks come as custom editions with access codes. Your class may/may not use it. I emailed two of my professors for the upcoming semesters about this and they both told me that we won't be using the codes. So instead of spending $400 on both textbooks in total, I'll be spending around 40. So definitely email your professor if you'll be using the textbook or wait until the first day of classes if you can Reply love of ev says: August 13, 2017 at 10:40 pm rising junior in high school eyyyyyyyyyy my sister's going to chapel like this thursday or friday btw LOVE YOUR CHANNEL!!!!!

This tip can be applied to other things like fountain drinks or grab a Ziploc and fill it up with spinach, cookies, Cheerios, fruitloops, potato chips, ect. NO SHAME – everyone in the dinning hall is also broke and feels your pain.

Reply Tori Scherle says: August 14, 2017 at 8:39 pm At my school, the meal plans are all you can eat so if you're in a rez with a mandatory meal plan there' either 5 day or 7 day. Which is dumb cause I don't eat as much as a guy my age. I'm just glad my rez is not mandatory cause i just make my own food anyways. Reply Afhkklkdsd says: August 14, 2017 at 9:35 pm Student loans are going to suck. I hope to get a work study job and pay off any interest while I am attending. Being in debt does not go along with my beautiful retirement plans. Hopefully I can get a job in my major as well.

I had a couple of classes where it wasn't, and I got the previous edition on amazon for literally £0.01 + shipping Reply Katie Breyman says: August 29, 2017 at 12:38 am I'm going into my last year of college! Another pro tip is don't buy the books before class starts unless the professor specifically says to. Sometimes they'll put a book on the list because it is required by their department. This way, you won't be wasting money on a book you'll never use. Also, for GE's, rent books! It's waaay cheaper, and you don'y have to bother with holding on to it or trying to sell it later on.

Im a senior in highschool going to an expensive college next year. Any money I can save is honestly gold. Reply EditsOnToast says: January 8, 2018 at 4:23 pm If you’re not worried about being healthy, I’d recommend buying a bunch of food from the dollar menu’s at fast food restaurants and freezing them or just keep them in the dorm. If you can budget $1-$2 per dorm. Reply Thee Watcher says: January 16, 2018 at 6:57 am Why are you speaking too fast? I know English but I can't even understand the point. What is the hurry for?
