Compiled from student responses to the Money Saving Tips contest (brought to you by
StudentAwards in partnership with Scotiabank, April to June 2011).To learn more about how you can Fund Your Future, visit www.fundyourfuture.ca.
In order to save money here are some tips I use: instead of staying in all of the time you can try watching a DVD you own that you haven’t seen in a long time. You can also rent from a library or from Netflix, which are a lot less than going out to the movies. If you want to go out to a theater, go to the matinee. If you want to go to a concert, wait to buy your tickets, the last minute tickets are usually sold at cheaper prices. Lastly, instead of going out for dinner, try cooking a meal and having a few friends over. You can turn it in to a game night and then not only will it be cheap, but fun too. (more…)
