There are so many things we waste money on that we don’t even realize. I make a majority of the money I spend, so I try to be as frugal as possible. I’m slowly learning what’s worth money and what’s not, how to spend my money, and where to spend it. I have a few tips and tricks to help you save money for things you actually want to buy—important things like clothes and booze.


我们在做许多事情的时候都会浪费钱,但是自己往往意识不到,我会花掉自己挣的大部分的钱,因此必须尽可能的节俭。现在我正在慢慢的学习哪些钱是花的值得的,哪些是没必要的,应该怎样花自己的钱以及把钱花在哪里。这里我有一些小技巧教你既能买到你想要的重要的东西,例如衣服,酒,又能省钱。


1. Paint your own nails, or find a friend to do it for you. You can get, like, 10 paint jobs out of one $9 bottle of polish as opposed to one $15 manicure.


自己涂指甲油或者让朋友帮你涂,你从九美元的指甲油中得到的是十份美甲的工作,而不是被迫掏十五元的美甲费。


2. Go grocery shopping and cook your own food. If you don’t know how, Google a recipe. This is going to stop you from spending money at every food truck you pass.


去百货店购物然后自己做饭吃。如果你不会做,可以在网上搜个菜谱。这样你就省的花每一顿的饭钱了。


3. Find a side job like babysitting or tutoring. It’s not time consuming, and is an easy way to make fast cash.


找一个兼职例如临时保姆或者家教,这并不是在浪费时间,而是转外块的最容易的方法。


4. WALK. Ubering everywhere is a waste of money, not to mention it’ll make you lazy.


步行。不要到哪里都打车,那是十分浪费钱的,况且它会让你变的更懒。


5. Don’t just buy the first textbook you see in the bookstore. Search around, and check out Amazon or Chegg for cheaper deals.


不要只去书店里买新书,多去亚马逊或者齐格网上逛逛,看看那些便宜的打折货。



6. Divvy up your money per month/term/semester. I get a total amount for the year, then split it into three portions, one for each term. That way, I don’t blow it all at once, can rationalize my spending, and keep track a little easier.


每个月,每学期或每学年有计划的分配你的钱。我会拿到一整年的钱,再把它们分成三份,,每次用其中的一份。用这种方法我不会一下子就把钱花完,它能够使我每个月的花销更合理,也更容易在最后核对账目。


7. Learn to like cheap alcohol. We all want Coronas at the bar, but you’re in college. Man up, and shotgun that Natty Light.


学着去喜欢便宜的酒,在酒吧大家都想点上好的酒,但是现在你还只是一个大学生,果断一点,没有什么是不可以的。


8. Borrow clothes from your friends, instead of buying a new outfit every single time you go out.


可以借你朋友的衣服穿,不要每次出门回来都要购进一整套的新衣服。


9. Have roommates (at least for a year or two). You’ll save money on rent; and you’ll always have someone around to hang out with.


要有室友(至少一年或两年)。和别人合租会省下一些钱,并且出去闲逛的时候你也有人陪了。


10. Invest in a Keurig. I don’t even want to know the amount of money I spent on coffee my freshman year, but I can tell you it’s an embarrassing number.


在客里格上有自己的投资。我甚至不想知道大一那年我在咖啡上花了多少钱,但是我可以告诉你那绝对是一个令人尴尬的数字。


So there you have it—and I promise your bank account will thank you if you take some of these tricks and apply them to your own life.


所以现在你明白了吧——如果你能将这些技巧应用到生活中我保证你的银行账户会感谢你的。
