What’s the best way to manage your funds when you decide to live in an off campus apartment? I’d also have a job so I’d get some steady income as well.
Shopping: Should I always aim for sales and discounts? Dollar store brands?
Even though it can be expensive to live off campus, it all depends on how many roommates you have and what expenses you have to pay. For me, I’d aim for the cheaper apartments around $300-400 a month with a roommate or two so we can all split the rent. Going further, I think that some of the expenses can be covered by the university depending on the policies. (Electric, Water, Internet, etc.)
