Being Frugal

We recognize that every transfer students' experience is different, however, we know that many transfers face some of the same challenges as they transition into the university. This blog was created for transfers by transfers to share TIPS and insight on having the best semester you can at Texas A&M University.

    As college students, we try our hardest to be as frugal as possible. We try to save as much as we can and we try to find those sales and those coupons. For me, I try to be SUPER frugal when it comes to buying clothes. I will throw down my credit card for a $20 meal but will put back a shirt that is $20 because I don’t want to spend more than $10. I don’t know why I’m like this, and I’ve had some of the same items of clothing since my freshman year of high school. That was four years ago, just FYI! My style has stayed the same since I was 15 (I’m 22 now) so that’s helped me stay very good at not buying new clothes. I’m all about the sales, if I can find 3 shirts for the price of one, I consider that a VERY good day! Coupon codes, door busters, member sales, those are just a few of the things I get excited about when I go shopping and a few things you can use too. The last time I really spent money on clothes was about a month ago when I need to buy some new jeans because my old ones didn’t fit over my thighs anymore. Another great thing is that my roommate and I are very close in size so we can share clothes. That opens up my own wardrobe to so many new pieces that she has. The same goes for my sister. If you lucky enough to have that USE IT, but make sure you reciprocate their kindness and let them borrow some things too! One more thing, if you do need to go shopping for something, use https://www.coupons.com/! Just type in the store you’re looking for and watch those coupons pop up!
