college kids need that money!

I absolutely loved college. I definitely had waaaay too much fun during my years as a college student. That is something i have no regrets about.

But thinking about those college bills? All that money spent on tuition, room & board, meals AND textbooks to boot?! I don't exactly miss all that {or any of it}!

If you are a college student, it pays to save! I remember spending hundreds of dollars on textbooks every semester it literally made me cringe. What was worse was selling them back! You could easily spend $500 on your books and get $22 back at the end, i kid you not. Not awesome.

Why buy your textbooks when you can RENT them?! GENIUS!

Campus Book Rentals is an online company that offers you a large variety of perks when renting your textbooks!
- save 40-90% off of your average bookstore prices
- free shipping - BOTH WAYS!
- highlighting IS allowed
- flexible renting periods
- 30 day risk free returns
and my favorite...
- with every book rented, money is donated to Operation Smile!

{Operation Smile is a children's medical charity that provides reconstructive surgeries on children who have cleft lip}
*Isaiah and i hope to someday adopt, and this is so heavy on our hearts. We've also learned that adopting a child with special needs, disabilities and abnormalities such as cleft lip can help speed up the adoption process. Every child is so sweet and someday we may be dealing with this ourselves!*

Not only are you SAVING $$$ with Campus Book Rentals, you can enroll into their new program called Rent Back and MAKE $$$! Rent Back allows you to rent out books that you already own allowing you to make 2-4x more money than would with your average bookstore on campus... because no one is excited about getting $22 back after spending $500!

1. save money
2. make money
3. help children with cleft lip

Those sound like 3 really good seal-the-deal reasons to me and i only wish this around back when i was in college!
Keep them in mind as you are registering for your new semesters coming up this school year!

  1. That sounds like a great cause! It's good to know that there are charities which allows student to give back to the community and save some money at the same time. It’s too bad we didn’t have this thing back in college. Now that we know about it, I hope many college students out there will consider this way of saving up. Thanks for sharing!
