Dear David:

In these hard economic times, students must be budget concious. Here are some helpful tips:

I. Always make a list of what you need beIV you shop.

II. Walk & bike to & from school & carpool whenever ou can. This will save on gasoline costs. Further II this, always look around IV the best price on gasoline. Ie: How much off per litre, gift card/gift certificate savings.

III. Carry a water bottle of metallic nature with you so you never have to pay IV refills. Plus you can put other beverage types in it IV taste variety & the sealed metal container will keep that beverage fresh no matter what it is.

IV. Use coupons & student discounts when & wherever possible? Ie.: Some movie theatres have student pricing.

V. Look out IV free promotions. Ie.: Tim Horton's gives away free breakfast meals with high protein eggs every VI months.

VI. Cook your own meals, save the leftovers & bring a bag or box lunch II school. Always carry around healthy snacks as well like protein bars.

VII. Make your own coffee & carry it in a thermos/travel mug. World spot market coffee bean prices are rising fast & restaurant served coffee is getting terribly expensive.

Budgetary Restraint,
