Take advantage of deals for college students You can get deals on Spotify, Amazon Prime, Macs, movie theaters, car insurance and SO much more with just a college ID and/or a .edu email. Make sure to google before purchasing anything to see if they have a college discount or free options for college students! Take advantage of those college freebies and college discounts while you can. 2. Learn to cook a few yummy mealsYou don’t need to be a chef, but knowing 2-3 good and easy recipes that you can meal prep for when you get home from work and are exhausted and just want something yummy but easy to eat can save you SO much money on eating out. That way you can use your eating out money for moments you really enjoy it, not just because you’re paying for ease and convenience every time. 3. Schedule classes on the same dayThis is a big tip for commuters, but it also really important for non-commuters as well! You tend to spend more money when you’re out and about. So if you can schedule all of your classes on 3-4 days, rather than 5 days a week, you can save tons of money on last minute iced coffee runs and gas! 4. Invite friends over instead of going out Some of my favorite memories from college were nights in with my roommates, rather than going out. Have people over and split the cost of a few drinks and play some games for a more cost effective hangout! 5. Split expenses with friends/roommates This goes far beyond splitting rent and utilities. Get on family plans, split streaming subscriptions, and buy in bulk to take advantage of discounts! 6. Cut back on alcohol when going out Pay all in cash and limit the amount of cash you bring for drinks. We all know it’s easy to justify more drinks when you already have a few in your system, and those $6-$15 drinks add up REAL quick. So bring a credit card for emergencies and limit yourself beforehand to how many drinks you can pay for that night. 7. Automate your finances and budgetDigit partnered with Metabank to bring a newer version of the app, Direct! This automates EVERYTHING! And even gives you daily updates on how much you have to spend after it sets money aside of bills and savings. This is a GREAT budgeting app for college students because it’s automatic and helps keep you on track without spending tons of time or energy on your budget.

Creating a budget is one of the simplest and best things you can do to gain control of your money. Knowing how much money you have coming in and going out each month will put you in the driver’s seat when it comes to managing your cash! Make sure your budget is realistic. Identify the things you need such as food, and rent and separate those from your other expenses such as going out to eat, entertainment and shopping. Your budget is your spending plan for the month and sticking to it will help you save. Don’t forget the importance of savings and building up a rainy-day or emergency fund. Every month, be sure to pay yourself, by depositing money in your savings account. This cash will come in handy and prevent you from having to overspend or tap into credit.Ask the Edvisor®: Have a question for Elaine?
