Wait to Shop

Hold off on buying new clothes for the school year. If you wait until the end of fall, those fall fashions will be on sale.

Buy Books Online

College students should always buy textbooks online at sites like Amazon.com. They are almost always cheaper than campus bookstores.

Hold Swap Meets
