Money Saving Tips Part 4

  1. Lotto and Gambling. Generally, people lose money on the lotto and especially gambling. If you quit or limit this, you will save money.
  2. Watch for fees. Fees are everywhere; bank fees, atm fees, cash checking fees, late fees. These can add up over time.
  3. Get your textbooks used!!!
  4. Sell your textbooks back after every semester. I've often made $40-60+ back after selling my unused books to either a standalone store near my campus, or the school bookstore. Great pocket change.
  5. Quit smoking if you can! Smoking Cigarettes or *cough* Marijuana *cough* during college and beyond can take a huge toll on your piggy bank. If you want to smoke either, bum off your friends occasionally. These days I rather put that $50 into stocks than a sack of the green.
