Whether you are headed back to school or have kiddos preparing for another school year, going back means it’s time to buckle down and get serious once again. In order to ace those classes and enjoy the school year a little more, EZ-ACCESS has created a helpful list of tips to assist you in making life a little easier!
Save on Supplies Save some money on notebooks and pencils during your state’s tax-free weekend. Several states participate in this weekend, which happens to be around the time you need to purchase these school items. There will be great deals already in place so saving some more is an added bonus!
Revamp Your Style Collect and sell clothing to places where you will get money back such as Plato’s Closet, local hand-me-down stores, or online sites such as eBay. This is a great way to make a few extra bucks to help buy some new clothes for the year!
Use Google Scholar Scholar.google.com is the place to go when writing all of those papers that will be coming up. The information is reviewed for accuracy and professors will love that you used a scholarly, trusted source.
Remember Your Schedule Take a picture of your schedule and set it as your lock screen, so you won’t forget which class comes first and where it is. If you’re on a big campus or new to the area, take some time a few days before class starts to tour the place and find your classes so you won’t be late.
Maximize Productivity It has been proven that listening to classical music or natural sounds such as ocean waves improves your focus and productivity. Play some of those tunes when studying in order to stay on top of your game!
Save on Books Buy online to save money on your books, or use Amazon Prime Student to get six months free and 50% off your Prime membership the rest of the time you’re a student. This will save you heaps of money over the years!
