Your college years are the best time to develop a saving culture. This is the first time you're responsible for how you spend money, and it comes with many temptations. You need to learn how to live within your means because if you spend all you have within a short while, you'll struggle to survive the rest of the semester.

Even without a piggy bank, it is put some money aside to ensure you have a means of surviving during your rainy days. Saving money also means finding services at an affordable rate. Work with paper writing services that understand that college life is challenging. Write Zillas ensures you deliver your assignments on time without you paying an arm and a leg.

Don’t Purchase Expensive Text Books

During your freshman year, you probably bought all new textbooks because you don’t know better. However, now that you’ve been in college for a while, you realize that you’re better off buying second-hand books. They go for a fraction of the price and offer the same information as brand new books.

You can also make friends with students who’re ahead of you and borrow books they used in previous semesters. Not to forget that the school library has a plethora of books waiting to be borrowed. If you feel you might lose the library book, you can use it in the library and leave it there.

Always walk with your Student’s ID

Students get many discounts, and all they have to do is prove they are students. Always walk with your ID so you save money whenever you can. From clothes to laptops, you're bound to enjoy many discounts at different stores. Business people understand that you don't have much to spend, but they want to keep you coming. You can also get concert tickets at a fraction of the price if you have your student's ID.

Limit how much you eat out

There’s nothing as refreshing as eating out, but you have to limit this because it costs a lot. Instead, buy groceries that will last you a long time and make your own food. Cooking does not only save you money but also ensures your mind what you eat.

Find a place to get fresh vegetables and consider investing in a refrigerator to keep your groceries fresh.

Go for Affordable Housing

As you look for a place to live in school, prioritize security and comfort. Don’t go for luxurious accommodations because they don’t come cheap. You can always find ways to make your small space seem big and cozy. Consider using second-hand mats and carpets to ensure your dorm room is welcoming.

You also need to surround yourself with students with the same financial capabilities, so you don't get tempted to go for something that's beyond your means. Consider getting a roommate because this helps you to save even more.

Leave your Car at Home

There is nothing as costly to maintain for a college student as a car. If you have a car, leave it at home and make use of the university’s public transport system. If you own a car, friends are going to use you for a ride, even without realizing it. You’ll have to worry about gas when you could be saving that money for something more useful. Not to mention the money that goes into vehicle repair and maintenance. If you need an easy way to get around campus, consider investing in a bicycle.


Now that you know what you need to do to save money, you can comfortably survive to the end of the semester. Ensure you account for every cent you spend, so you know where your money is going. Carrying your ID everywhere you go ensures that you get all student discounts in every store you go to. Remember to live within your means and fight the temptation of buying things you don't need.
