This post is for anyone who is going to college, may go to college one day or knows someone who will! Today I’ve got a great money saving tip for you!!
If you don’t, come back tomorrow for a great New Year’s Eve appetizer recipe!
We are having a lot of fun here at the Wilkes house having all four kids home. The kids were so ready to come home. Three of them had finals right before they came home so they were ready for a break. There has been a lot of sleeping going on at our house.
They are on a semester schedule so when they return to school next week they will start new classes. Not only does that mean more tuition (thank goodness for those scholarships) but it also means new textbooks. If you have or have ever had a child in college or went to college yourself you know how expensive textbooks are – they are expensive!!! With two in college and one in law school, the textbook bill can get out of control.
I love to save money and I love when my friends share great ways to save money with me so today I’m going to share one with you!
I recently discovered a great website called Campus Book Rentals. Instead of having to make a trip to the bookstore and stand in that long line to pay you can do all your textbook shopping from your computer. You aren’t actually buying the textbooks, you are renting them so you are spending a lot less money.
Within about 20 minutes I was able to order just about every textbook my kids needed, including all the law school textbooks. There were a few things that were particular to their school and professors that they didn’t carry but I found 95 percent of what I needed at Campus Book Rentals. The books arrived in Utah within a few days of ordering them.
You may be wondering, like we were, if you could write or underline in the books? You can! That question and others that we had were answered here.
After the semester is over you just return the books. They provide the mailer and the postage! If your student decides they really want to keep the textbook you have the option to buy it also.
If you have any college students in your life I highly recommend you check out this site and save yourself some money!!
