7. Choose your college meal plan carefully
Most colleges offer several choices for a meal plan. Be sure to go over these choices and pick the one that matches your schedule and eating habits. Then, be sure to use it and don’t spend extra on junk foods or restaurant meals. It’s ok to go out once in a while with friends, just don’t make it a habit as it will not only wreak your budget, it will wreak your body as well.
8. Shop at places that give student discounts
In most college towns many of the stores, banks, restaurants and other businesses give student discounts. This can save you a lot of money, so don’t be shy about showing your student ID and asking for student discounts.
