If you have a college student who needs to get their hands on a bunch of college text books, remember that you don’t have to spend the big bucks on new ones. A great way to get your hands on these books is to search online for used ones or you can try those college book rentals.
I know lots of students who save hundreds of dollars every semester by buying their books off of the Internet. If you are already living in a college town you may be able to find classified ads or public postings offering extremely discounted books. Whatever you do, look around before you go to the stores on campus and spend a boatload on new books.
