Other Things To Expect From
College Life Made Easy
One of the top issues faced by college students today is being BROKE.
College is SO expensive, am I right??
Struggling to make ends meet while attending school and then drowning in debt after graduation is all too common. It’s adding more stress to an already stressful time in life and it is definitely NOT fun.
I get that – I’ve been there.
Paying for college on your own and barely have enough expendable money to buy groceries, let alone anything else, can be such a drain on your life!
Because of that:
I also share the best Free Stuff & Deals that students can take advantage of.
It’s always nice to be able to get something for free, but it’s so much more appreciated when you have literally NO room in your budget to spare.
The best part is:
All of the freebie offers I share are SUPER easy to score. They usually only need you to fill out a mailing form, use an app, or print out a coupon.
TIP: If you don’t have access to a printer, it costs only 10¢ per page to print at the library. Or, you can use the Coupons.com app to skip printing all together!
No ifs, ands or buts about it – I test all the freebies myself to make sure they ARE legit. The last thing I want to do is waste your time when you’re already as busy as busy gets.
And while we are on the topic of freebies – since I know the value of FREE for college students:
I created a Resource Library filled with useful printables!
These printables are designed FOR college students. There are 30+ resources in there made just for you.
I’m adding more to it all the time, too.
And like I mentioned before, they are absolutely free for your own use.

Now let’s get social!
I want to know how I can better help you – if there’s a topic you want me to explore, a printable you want me to make or anything else you want me to know about you:
I really LOVE to hear from you guys!
