- Buy Online. I learned about buying books online while penny pinching in college. Buying new is not only a great option for college students, many used editions of your favorite titles are marked down extremely. In fact last week I purchase a book from www.bookbyte.com for 4 bucks with shipping.
- Borrow a book from a library. You remember; that place that you went as a kid with books, you have to use a card to get them out. I try to take my family to the library as often as possible. It can be a great place for a play date and story time still exists, who knew. For a list of libraries in your area visit http://www.librarysites.info/
- Shop your library. Most libraries have a section where they sell used books or have annual book sales where you can find new books at extreme discounts.
- Shop resale and thrift stores, most books at these stores cost less than a dollar and you would be surprised at the types of books that you will find.
Peace and Love,
