12 ways for college students to save money

When I look around my apartment and examine recent receipts, I can truly say I have begun to actualize a longtime resolution: to live with less clutter and save money by being a more conscious consumer. Not only do I have a bike, cloth grocery bags, a refillable coffee mug, and thrift store clothing, but most of my furniture was either found in an alley, bought inexpensively at garage sales, passed down from a family member or given to me by a friend. I also save money by declining credit cards, cable TV or a car, on which I'd have to make payments.
