We had some highly entertaining responses sent to us via email when we asked this question over on our Facebook page which ranged all the way from “sell your body, go to college, drink to blot out the terrible memories, profit” to more serious and actually helpful answers like checking out groupon for local deals and savings. Apparently many students also like to keep a close eye on their local stores garbage bins for food that gets thrown away but isn’t spoiled. I don’t think I will be going that far in my endeavours to save money, but its nice to know a little bit about it, if it ever comes down to that.
How else do you save money? When shopping for books and textbooks, do you simply search online or do you trek around town in a bid for the cheapest books out there? Where do you get your stationary? Hell even car maintenance tips are welcome. Tell us what you think.
