Tips for Saving Money on a College Budget. Every Penny Counts!

College can be very financially straining especially if you’re getting little to no aid from anything or anyone else. College savings can be hard, let me help you! Scraping enough up for tuition, books, rent, and other bills are hard enough, not to mention eating. But worry not, currently going to college and successfully navigated the monetary perils it presents I can help save you from the ramen noodle plague that so many others have caught. Here are my top money saving ideas when eating on a college budget.

Little Caesars Pizza $5 Hot and Ready

Everyone eats enough pizza in college to be sick of it their entire life. Said no one ever. And when trying to find bargain deals this is one stand above the rest. A $5 Hot and Ready when spread out can easily feed someone for 3-4 meals. That’s like $1.25 a meal. That’s a bargain deal. The trick to microwaving the pizza after it’s been fridged is wetting a paper towel and covering the pizza in it before microwaving. This will leave it most and still very much delicious.

Any Chinese Kitchen

Asian food. That’s original right when talking about college food. Chinese Kitchen though is one of those places that load up on the fried rice or noodles with heaping helpings of your desired meat. It’s your prototypical Asian food: grease and delicious. On overage, you’ll get around 3 meals for this and usually runs you around $12. That averages out to be $4 a meal which isn’t too bad. To really maximize your dollar, make your meat one of the many types of chicken. Chicken is cheaper so normally you’ll get more.

Dollar Menus

We got there. The all mighty dollar menu. Once it started, every fast-food chain had to have one. This is great for the consumer, especially the hungry college student. If your hungry for burgers you’ve got McDonalds or Jack in the Box. If you’re craving Mexican food you’ve got Taco Bell. Got the munchies, need to save a buck, and be healthy, Wendy’s wraps are a great choice. Really the dollar menu is a college kids best friend.

Subway

The hardest thing to do while eating on a budget for fast food is eaten healthy. Healthy food is expensive. But even there’s even an option that in a sense, is healthy. Subway is that answer. Depending on how much TV you watched when you were younger you probably saw the Jarred commercials where gentlemen lost a large amount of weight substituting subway lower calorie sandwiches for a meal. Great for him right? Well, it’s great for the college kid too. Many subways have the $5 footlong for select sandwiches. Load one of these up with your favorite veggies, split it into two 6” and you get two meals for $2.50 each.

Easy to cook Noodles

Yeah. The college kid can never escape the all mighty ramen noodle. Well, maybe we can. There are several instant noodle mixes that average out to be about a dollar a piece that is delicious and have a hint of nutritional value. Go down to your local Asian market and pick up a couple different types from different countries. Figure out which ones you like and have a variety on hand for those late-night study times and midnight snacks.
Don’t let college be the years where you starved yourself of food to make ends meet. There are lots of ways to survive and still eat a decent variety of food. Of course, there’s always to option to cook at home but what college student has time for that?

Adventure Time with Tanner and Charlie!

Adventure Time with Charlie and Tanner!

Our first thing, and most important is the rules regarding the pond. No adult means no playing by the pond. Ponds can be dangerous, so we take precautions when it comes to the pond, however that doesn’t mean we still cannot have fun with it!

Charlie and Tanner would sleep outside if we let them. Anything and everything that has to do with outdoors they are all over it. We have recently purchased a small fishing net and the boys have not put it down. For $1.99 at Walmart, this net has been one of the best purchases I could have made.

Very carefully the boys will go up to the pond and squat down to where they can reach the net into the water and wait. We have learned that once you put the net in the water the fish will swim away, so we put the net in the water and wait. After about 30 seconds to one minute, the little minnows will swim back by the bank and we are able to catch them! This is something the boys LOVE to do whenever they go outside, and it’s a great learning activity also! They get to see what exactly a minnow is, what fish eat minnows, different types of minnows and understanding the difference between a tadpole and minnow.

 

If you have any free time you should grab a small net and go, see what type of animals you can catch with your little ones in a pond! But always be careful, watch your step and don’t forget to have fun!!!

Room Decorated Diaper Bag

Being prepared is something that is super important to me, and makes me feel I have my life somewhat in order. While being a mom that can be a difficult task, making sure I have everything I for me and having everything for the kids. Some might say I “overpack” for everything so it’s not a surprise I need a diaper bag that is big enough to fit all my children’s stuff. I have tried many diapers bags out but the Room Decorated Diaper Bag is by far the greatest diaper bag I have tried. With my obsession making sure I have everything I like to fill my diaper bags to the rim; the diaper bags can become filled fast. With the room decorated diaper bag being such a great material, I am able to be confident it will not rip and will be able to hold everything I put in there. I am able to use this bag for my “daytime” trips and my “night time” trips which I love since I don’t have to switch bags all the times.

Now let’s get to the facts. This is a diaper bag that comes with a nice changing mat. The changing mat rolls up easy and is super easy to clean, which makes it very flexible to use anywhere. It is a tan color with brown and white designs making it color neutral, perfect for a boy, girl or both!! One of my favorites, if not the best thing about this product is the waterproof capabilities. It is made with a high-quality Oxford fabric causing the diaper bag to be water resistant. I’m not saying throw this diaper bag in the pool when you are swimming, but don’t be afraid if the bottle sippy cup spills on it. The diaper bag is very easy to clean if anything were to get on it. Overall I  and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great diaper bag!

Trunk Organizer

One of the most important things to be successful and successes in life is to be organized. I enjoy knowing where everything it at, knowing everything looks nice and I feel as if I sleep better at night knowing I am prepared for what is thrown at me. This is one of the reasons why I LOVE the Premium Car Truck Organizer. It fits perfectly in the back of my car, and it’s a perfect size. I can fit folders and binders for my work, have enough room for my first aid kit, and anything extra I will need for the day.

This truck organizer costs only $19.95 and it has a lifetime warranty. It is made from some of the best material for storage. It can hold up to 100 lbs causing it not to tear, rip, or break easily. I love how I do not have to worry about what I put in here! With work being hectic sometimes I need to travel with a lot of binders and folders but having this organizer I’m confident that it will not spill, or tip over causing a big mess.

Now I am not the best driver, sometimes taking the curves a little sharper than I should (but who doesn’t?) and I have never seen this car-truck organizer slide or fall over. It has these amazing anti-slip grips that help with sliding making sure everything you have in the organizer stays put.

Being very flexible its easy to fit into smaller trucks. You can fold up one side if it is too long for your car, making it shorter.  If you need to move stuff into your trunk it is easy to maneuver around making space for whatever else you needed. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great product to stay organized!!
