  • Avoid buying books from your campus bookstore! The campus bookstore is a convenient way to get everything you need, but it is the most expensive way to get what you need! 
  • Email your professor and ask them if you can get an older version of the required text book. You can save tons of money by getting the previous years addition! 
  • Shop online.
  • Rent books, but make sure you know the renting policy. 
  • Buy eBook text books. (I don't think I would prefer this option, but it is an option)
  • Sign up for Bucks 4 Books, right here on my website! 

Some websites you should check out for your books are,

Amazon.com, Half.com, Chegg.com, campusbookrentals.com

Be thrifty with your money this year! Start a budget, save and don't be afraid to ask questions! 

Keeping it Fresh, Young & Free,
