It’s no secret that nobody saves in the university. In fact, just stretching your allowance to get you as far as you need to go can be a problem. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the major cash loss periods that you need to be on the lookout for each semester. In these times, you realize that you lose a lot of money very quickly.
Moving Into A New Hall
When you’re moving into a new hall, or starting level 100, you need to keep an eye on your wallet. If you’re the type with parents that will reimburse you for what you spend fixing up your room, then you should definitely keep track of what you’re spending. If no one is going to reimburse you, then you should definitely fix things up as much as you can. And instead of hiring handymen to fix your room up, put pressure on the porter in your hall, although it might still take a while.
The Registration Period
Registeration week is another cash loss period that you need to be wary of. You’re going to be required to get a few thick pamphelets, past questions and other material for the sem in addition to the registration fees that you’re going to be paying per course. Remember to calculate the costs of all the materials for a course as part of the registeration costs for that course.
The next biggest cash loss period in the university that you’re going to want to clutch your pockets during is hall weeks. Hall Weeks in the university are extremely fun. In fact, they’re just fun enough that you don’t even realize how much you’re spending or even care enough to track that spending.
Periods When You’re In A Relationship
We all want to believe that relationships will survive on horniness, witty banter and vibes alone, but that’s hardly the case. When we’re in a relationship we’re tempted to show the other person just how much we appreciate them. And those acts of affection usually aren’t free. You’ve got to spend something.
