4. Avoid Eating Out
Preparing your meal and eating in is less expensive than dining out. This way you can save a lot of money each month. Learn how to prepare simple meals at home. If it doesn’t violate any laws, a basic hot plate or microwave might be helpful.
It would be great if your room have a mini-fridge or you can bring one from home. By having this, you can make enough supply of fresh vegetables, yogurt, and meats to last you for a week of lunch. Also, if you like drinking coffee, a coffee maker is far less expensive to purchase than a daily trip to the school cafe.
