College is expensive. There is no way around that fact. You start paying for your education in high school. Paying for practice tests, then SAT’s and ACT’s. College admission applications cost money. Once you’re accepted it’s time to start paying for college classes, housing, a food plan, transportation, and more.
If you did not get a full scholarship, keep reading. If you did get a full scholarship, I suggest you still keep reading. Save every penny now. It’s so much easier to start your career debt-free. And yes, it can be done!
There are a lot of tips to save money. I have added a few of my TOP tips below.
Buy, rent, or borrow used textbooks. Did you know you can now RENT textbooks? I love this idea. Also, ask friends and family if you can buy or borrow their used textbooks. This goes for study guides too. We are buying used study books for the A.P. Exam this year (high school).
Open a savings account that earns interest.
Consider becoming a resident advisor to save on housing (or get it free!)
Limit eating out at restaurants.
Make your own coffee. This can save you hundreds.
Skip cable and other non-necessary items.
Try to avoid loans
COUPON! use coupons as much as possible for food, health and beauty, and more.
GO TO CLASS! You paid for it, so get what you paid for!
Spread The Word!
