School is almost back in session for us college peeps. I survived my first semester of college, one thing that I wish that I did better at was save money. This is something many people struggle with so I wouldn’t tear yourself up if you bought something you shouldn’t of. I want to help my readers save and be happy!
First off, look at how much money you actually have and write it out if it helps. Then subtract out bills and if you don’t have them, this should be easy.
Do not go all spendy at the first of the semester. I know we want to have new clothes and things along those lines, but think twice about ALL purchases. Do you really need it? You never know how much you will have to pay that semester, if you don’t take out loans. Which I’m happy I haven’t had to, I try to receive as much grant money or financial aid as possible. Lets be real college is not getting any cheaper so take advantage of all possibilities to receive money.
“They don’t want you to have that Starbucks..” The amount of money that you will spend eating out is insane. The thing is, you do not realize that you are spending the money. Say no to your friends and do not go out, only every once in a while for a treat. MEAL PLAN…. This will help you save money and keep you healthy. Two birds one stone. You’re welcome. I will post soon about my meal plans, don’t you worry.
That is about all that I can think of right now and these tips are great ways to start saving! I hope you enjoyed the post and if you have any tips to share please do, your comments are welcome!
