When heading off to school, students go with the knowledge that they’ll have a limited income and will not be able to make the same financial decisions they may have grown accustomed to. It’s stressful trying to budget money with not much income flowing in, but here are some steps to keep in mind to help make it through the months.
- Track your spending.
- Create budgets for yourself.
- Set financial goals.
- Try out a frugal lifestyle strategy.
- Optimize spending on food.
- Create an emergency fund and constantly add to it.
