should go instead into your savings account and it will assist you to repay the loan later.

an easy access to your funds. But unless you have a good discipline in you spending habits, these cards only serve
as temptations for overspending and thinking that you have more money than you do.

jobs like small businesses around the campus. By the time you are through with college you will be able to pay back
the loan and have learned good and sound money management skills that will help you in your career.

everything from movie tickets to a new computer, phone or stationery. These small discounts counts a lot.
