2. Buy Your Books Used if Possible
Ask any college student: textbooks are expensive! Thankfully, you can save yourself hundreds of dollars if you buy your textbooks used instead of new. And you may be able to recoup much of your investment by reselling them as well. To save yourself some money, look for your textbooks online or inquire with classmates to see if they have a title you need. Websites like CampusBooks, Chegg, and Valore Books allow you to search through thousands of different titles, so the odds are good that you don’t have to pay full price. In fact, some of these services even offer a rental option, if you know that you don’t need the book for the entire semester.
