Hey my loves,
in today’s blog post I am going to talk about how to save money when you are a broke student. Now I am not talking about saving up money for a house or a car or for traveling, what I am talking about is saving money for your everyday life – such as groceries, beauty products, stuff for your apartment or things you need for College.
You can save a lot of money on groceries and you might miss out on some great things. The first thing you have to remember while grocery shopping is “Is this something I want or need?”, because there lies the biggest fail while spending the money at the grocery store. What I like to do is to plan out my meals, but leave some room for things I want to change. I also incorporate weekly deals of my local grocery stores and stock up once a month on items like vegetable cans, frozen veggies and fruit, pasta, rice as well as things like oil, flour and sugar, basically everything that can last you a long time.
Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle
We all know that shopping is one of the deathliest things to a student, you want all the things and you buy a lot of things that you might not really need. But the truth is, sometimes we need new clothes, new makeup or new furniture. And you can save money – there are especially a lot of student deals. I personally love to use Unidays, they have the best deals for my personal usage, but I also just like to Google for coupon codes, sometimes you find amazing deals. Another thing, which I feel like not a lot of people are aware of a newsletter coupon codes, they are rare, but truly worth it.
Now as a student you probably are spending more money for College than anything else – from student supplies, books for your course to computers and printers. It can get expensive, so you got to be smart about it. As for laptops Apple always offers 10% off for students, which might not seem much, but you pay for quality. As for supplies I always like to go to the dollar store or anything where you can get your supplies for as cheap as possible. For books I like to find used books or change out books with other students that is a great way for you to save money.
