College is all about expanding your horizons, and finding your passions. However, it is also the first time that students have had to budget their money. From tuition to utilities, there are some expenses you just can’t cut down on. But what if I told you there are a few simple tricks you can try to lower your car insurance payments?
Some companies offer discounts to students who maintain a “B” average. Additionally if you are flying away to college, and won’t be using your vehicle, some companies may credit you, or at least give you a discount. Here are a few other easy ways to save during your crazy college years:
- Always buy your textbooks used! For elective courses, you will most likely be selling them back at the end of the semester. So save big, and only opt for rented or used books.
- Take up cooking! Meal plans, and fast food can add up quick. Learn to make your own meals, save money, and avoid the Freshman 15 all at the same time.
- Instead of paying someone to do your laundry for you, do it yourself! Do your homework while you wait for your loads to dry, and watch your savings grow.
