Obviously, budgets are designed to help you save money, but it can really help you avoid more debt than necessary if you are a student. The way that many students fail to save money is that they simply don’t have a budget or they don’t follow it as closely as they should.
Start by calculating how much you have, look at your monthly necessity expenses, and then you can figure out how much you can save each month.
When you create a budget, make sure you put a bit of money aside each month that you can use to spend on whatever you like. This will help you not only stick to your budget, but also have some fun while in school.
