12 Practical budgeting tips for college students

Rounding it up

  • Trying to manage your personal finances while earning a degree? Keep an eye on student discounts, use coupons where you can, and take advantage of free events.

  • It helps to get a part-time job, so you can pay off any high-interest debt and set aside funds for fun (work hard, play hard, right?).

  • There are many ways to save at the home — or dorm — as well. Avoid wasting food, budget with roommates, and try to sell items you don’t need for some pocket money.

  • Make smaller work of big money management responsibilities by using personal finance apps and getting a cash back credit card (Like a KOHO reloadable prepaid Mastercard).
