Make money saving as a student

  • September 29, 2020
    Many students ask on our blog meowessay about how to save money or make money. In this article, we will share hits on how to save some money on general expenses.


    Rent a room to someone else. If you rent or own a home outside of college, you can save a lot of money by finding a roommate.

    • Check the backgrounds of your potential roommates. We recommend that you start with your friends and college mates. Make a preliminary agreement that says how you will handle the expenses and make sure you do not violate any rules of the rental agreement by bringing someone else into the residence.

    Save money with your books. Books are a huge expense for any college student, but it's not a good idea to stop buying them. However, there are several ways to save money when buying books.

    • When you have the list of books you need, check their prices at the university bookstore and then look elsewhere to see if you can find them at a lower price.

    Look for used books. You can generally find lower-priced books (both new and used) online or at used book stores, who usually buy old student books at the end of the semester.

    • Since many teachers use the same books each semester, you can find much cheaper versions of that edition. You could even borrow the book from your college or local library.

    Find an old edition. If your teacher is using a new edition of the book this semester, you may be able to use an older (and cheaper) edition of the book. Publishers usually make very few changes between each edition of the book and the only differences are the page numbers or a new section.

    • Ask your teacher if an older edition will pass the course before purchasing it.

    Rent or share books with another person. Perhaps you can rent books at a lower cost or share the expenses with a colleague who is enrolled in the same course.

    • If you decide to do so, be sure to decide who will have the book and at what time.

    Take only cash with you. You can spend less if you use cash to make your purchases. Keep your credit and debit cards or put them in a well hidden place in your wallet in case of an emergency.

    • When you withdraw money from your account or cash a check, be sure to withdraw enough to last the entire month. In this way, you will avoid going to the ATM several times. Because each operation has a cost, you can spend a lot of money like this.

    • Avoid carrying all your money with you. Just go out with what you need.

    Save money on food. If you live on campus, you may very well have to buy an eating plan. If this is the case, choose the cheapest one (be honest about how many times you will eat at the cafeteria).

    • Take advantage of any meal plan you have. Avoid skipping meals so you don't have to buy something later. Also, if they allow you, bring fruit or leftovers with you so you have a snack for the rest of the day.

    • You can also attend events on campus where they offer free food.

    • If you have a job in the cafeteria or kitchen, maybe you can bring free food with you.

    Don't use the meal plan. If possible, you can save more money by not buying the meal plan and doing your own shopping.

    • Buy food at a discount or wholesale store. While you can save by buying in bulk, it can also cost a lot. You can avoid this problem by shopping with a friend or with your roommate.


    Save money on clothes. It is logical that you want to look good, but you don't have to spend a lot of money to be fashionable. Try to simplify your wardrobe a bit: buy classic clothes that you can combine with other clothes.

    • Buy your clothes at thrift stores or look for clothes in the sale. You can also swap clothes with your friends for a little variation.
