Heading back to college is exciting…and expensive!
Wise shoppers stretch dollars, so don’t overspend on things you don’t have to (which is pretty much everything, by the way).
How? It’s easy – just shop smarter!
Not sure how? Here are some tips to help you shop smarter for your college needs.
1. Learn Dorm Do’s and Don’ts
Your awesome wall hanging won’t look so awesome in a box under your loft. Make sure you’re going to be able to hang it – along with other dorm restrictions before you buy.
You can easily find out from the school what is and is not allowed in dorms, including: items hanging on walls and small electronics.
Additionally, many schools have commonly used items available for students in the dorms, so you don’t need to purchase them.
Takeaway: Check the do’s and don’ts before you buy so you don’t end up wasting purchasing and packing items you don’t need!
