Frugal Fun For Students

Advantages Save money

DisadvantagesTakes a bit of effort!

"...thing or two about thrifty student living over the years! I am writing this review to share some of this advice; it is aimed at those who are students now, will be students soon, or who have children who are/will be students, partly because this is where my experience lies and partly because the location of this category implies that the "thrift tips" are for those of a scholarly disposition. I hope that they are of use to someone out there. Alas, ..." Read review

Student Survival Guide

AdvantagesYour student years can be the best of your life and following these tips may help

This opinion is ever so slightly tongue in cheek, so don't take my suggestions the wrong way. ~~~~~~~~~~~ "I'M FIFTEEN, HONEST!" ~~~~~~ Now I'm quite small, and have been told I have "one of those faces which can be either young or old". So what do I do but take advantage of this fact? Let's face it, I will not be able to get away with paying child ..." Read review

Economical Management For Students

Advantages..

Disadvantages..

"...year I opened as many student bank accounts as I could, with the sole purpose of making money. I did not ask for credit cards or overdrafts with most of them and so they were happy enough to take me on board. Doing this earned me over £180 in cash (and some vouchers too), and most importantly did not upset my credit rating. Now I have one main current account into which my salary and student loan are paid. This comes with an interest and fee free ..." Read review
