College is expensive however there are ways you can cut costs. Whether your a mom sending your children of to college or you are a student headed of to college you can use these simple tips to cut costs on college.

  1. Shop clearance racks and sales for essentials like bedding, school supplies, room decor and more.  By doing this you can save 50% of more on items you need.
  2. Don’t be afraid to shop at thrift stores for things like area rugs, shelving, desks, room decor, storage bins, curtains and more.
  3. Use coupons for school supplies, food and personal supplies anytime you can.
  4. Ask relatives for no longer wanted items that you can use in your dorm room such as a Coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, bedding, area rug, room decor, fan and more.
  5. Rent textbooks from places like CampusBookRentals.com. This will save  anywhere from 40-90% off of bookstore prices!  Plus you get free shipping both ways! You can also highlight in your rented textbooks.

Never pay full price for something if you don’t have to. Especially textbooks since your only using the books temporally most of the time. You also get flexible renting periods and each textbook you rent CampusBookRentals.com donates to Operation Smile! Renting your textbooks is one of the number one ways to save a ton of money on college costs.

Save more money when you refer friends to CampusBookRentals.com so they can save too! In return you will get $5 bucks for each friend that rents. Plus the friends you refer get 5% off their next purchase! So get out there and spread the word!

Maybe you just finished college and still have your text books. You can take your textbooks and earn some extra cash for them with CampusBookRentals new program called RentBack that allows students to rent their textbooks they already own to other students. They will rent them for you and every time your book gets rented you get paid and that could be over and over again! This is a great idea because you can make 2-4x more money than you would if you sold your text books back at the end of the semester!
