Textbooks Of My Life

I’m frequently reminiscing, not because I’m not satisfied with my current life but because I have so many great memories to look back on. My thoughts as of late have been on college and how much I miss it. I recently went to visit my little sister who is in her first semester of college and it reminded me of all the trials, successes, and gratifying times I had while attending Dixie State College in St. George, UT. College could be considered the prime of my life thus far. I haven’t ever felt so “me” in my life. Experiencing living on my own, managing money, cooking (more like burning) my own food, and constantly interacting with new people was truly an adventure I hope everyone has the opportunity to experience. There’s nothing like being able to create your own reality.

While college was a time of bliss it also had many challenges that came along with it, including money. College is extremely expensive and it’s important to make the most of the money you put into college to avoid future debt following obtaining your degree. I was able to graduate, debt free, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations and I know the money I was able to save on textbooks through www.CampusBookRentals.com throughout my 4 years at college made a HUGE effect on me being able to achieve that goal. CampusBookRentals.com offers you textbooks online at a discounted price (a huge 40-90% off the college bookstore prices!), free shipping, and they now offer flexible textbook rentals, with proceeds of each textbook rented going towards Operation Smile! Their new program Rent Back allows you to rent your own college textbooks online, giving you way more money than what you’d receive just doing the buyback option each college offers at the end of the semester! (I remember always getting back like $10…. Lame!) Proceeds will go to help fund a cleft lip surgery, allowing Operation Smile to change the life of a child forever.  To learn more about Operation Smile, click HERE! Feel free to watch the video listed at the bottom of this post, It'll give you some more information on CampusBookRentals and how they can hook you up with a killer deal!!

College honestly was the best time of my life and I can't explain to you how important it is to be smart with your money and make the most out of what you have while you are in school! Take advantage of every deal you can, I promise it'll pay off in the end! XO
