Food Instead of buying a pop, from local vending machine why not just buy a case of 24 to store at your locker or dorm room. You will be amazed at how much you will save when you buy in bulk. Another way of saving on food is to visit your friend’s fridge on a daily basis and when ever possible try to attend to any free food locations (parties, club meetings…etc) on campus.
Clothing Instead of buying those brand new “check marked” shoes, why not save your money for something that you will really need in college (laptop, books, contraceptives). Try to visit local thrift store and check Ebay on a daily basis, you will be amazed at how many $1 t-shirts are out there.
Printing & Photocopying Many students save money on printing and photocopying by use of a scanner. The student simply scans what he/she needs and emails scanned file back to him/her self. Not only will you save money, but will also have an electronic copy of file which you could later download to your laptop or pda. If you really must print then try not to use school printing services. Most of time these services will cost you an extra 5-10¢ per page, cents which could go towards purchase of a new ink cartridge.
Money Instead of using a credit card, why not only keep cash in your wallet/purse. Not only does this give an exact measure of how much cash you have at hand, and can spend, but will also avoid you from living above your means. Apart from that you could also try finding a part time job on campus, not only will you get some extra cash but will also gain some valuable experience that you can put on your resume.
