Go to College, Save Money, Be Fashionable

This is a shout-out to all of you college goers out there! In college, textbooks put a huge dent in your budget and it has a direct influence on the amount of school clothes you can buy. I’m here to tell you that there is a solution to all of this madness. Don’t buy your textbooks…RENT them!

The people over at campusbookrentals.com offer everyone 40-90% off on their textbooks. You just order your textbooks online, select how long you want to keep the books, free shipping both ways, you can highlight in the books, and at the end of the semester you just send them back in a pre-paid envelope they give you. You don’t have to worry about outdated textbooks that the bookstore wouldn’t buy back. You also don’t have to worry about all of those textbooks laying around in your basement taking up space. You do have the option to purchase the textbook at the end of the semester if you really want to keep it 🙂

Another really cool thing about renting from campusbookrentals.com is that they donate a portion of each rental to Operation Smile. This organization saves lives by performing cleft lip surgeries for children who are born to families who can’t pay for it.

So you can save money AND save lives!

    Oh my goodness, this is definitely something I can relate to. The price of textbooks is insane! and especially since I am doing a five year degree.

    The one good thing about living in Trinidad is the free college tuition. I am about to start school once again and if I had to pay I would have never been able to go.

Work hard, play hard, save hard, and shop hard! :))
