Extremely 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.

    This may sound odd, but I am extremely frugal when it comes to buying beauty products. This may not apply to about half to population, but a lot of people, specifically college age, invest a lot of money into their beauty routines. And this is completely okay! But for me, I care very little about what my facial appearance is on a typical day-to-day basis. Most days I just wake up, get dressed (Nike shorts and giant t-shirts are my go-to), wash my face with a basic facial cleanser, brush my teeth and hair, then head on my way to school. The only time I ever put a large amount of effort into my appearance is for very special occasions and, occasionally, church. So, because of this reason, I am extremely frugal with the money I spend on beauty products. For me, personally, I cannot justify dropping $100 at Sephora. For those of you who can, that is awesome and I applaud you for waking up and doing your makeup on the daily – that takes some strength. What are you extremely frugal with?
