5 Ways to save money in College

Feb 12, 2016

2 years ago, I graduated from College. I miss going to school and having some talks with my friends and classmates. it is expensive to be a college student because there lot of expenses. Here's ways that may help you to save money in College.

5 Ways to save money in College

1. Borrow things

Let's be practical, don't be shy on asking your higher year or graduated friends with same course as you to borrow things from them like books or uniform. I just borrowed some of my text book and paraphernalia.

2. Buy in Group

If you buy in a bulk, the store will give you discounts. When i was on college and we're required to buy something, we buy in group or someone will buy for us.

3. Open a Savings Account

When the money is still in your wallet, you always tend to use it. Go ahead, open a savings account or an ATM, it doesn't matter if you're going to deposit a small amount but make it a habit to deposit at least every month.

4. Avoid Over spending

Which always happens to me. Haha! Learn to manage you're money specially when your parents is giving you a weekly or monthly allowance. Buy only the things you need the most.

5. Find ways to make extra cash

If your schedule permits, try to apply on fast food chain, computer shops (typing job) or if you have a blog, you can make money out of it but not easy as 1.2.3. When I was on college I made extra money on blogging.

Isdaan Tarlac

Jan 14, 2016

Last November 2015, we went in Isdaan Tarlac after our visit on our Lady of Manaoag.. Really wanted to go there since the tacsiyapo becomes viral and i heard a lot of good feedback about their food.. 
a floating restaurant for real! Its my first time here and i must say that i love the place, despite that i have a little fear while walking cause its sinking (the way into the kubo)
They even give us fish food, so we can feed them while waiting for our order.
We ordered Shrimp, crab and their best seller chicken (really the BEST) plus fresh buko juice and melon shake. If im going to come back there, i would love to eat again the best seller chicken (forgot what they call it) ..
the rice is actually good for two people cause I didn't finish mine. :)) 
They also have entertainer while waiting, there were a a group of singers, shows in the center of the restaurant (i think, every weekends only) and some massage therapist.
On our way out, there's a long line outside, their waiting to get in. Good thing that we came earlier, Many people coming to eat there and i have no doubt because their food is good and their service is really nice. Although, we did not stroll around cause we're on hurry.
