One of the easiest ways to save some cash might be right under your nose -- literally.
Think about how often you have something to drink other than water. A Diet Coke here, a coffee there, an energy drink in between ... all those soft drinks are costing you hard cash.
If you're looking for some easy ways to cut financial corners, try cutting out expensive drinks. The water you have to drink instead will be good for you anyway, and you might be surprised at how often you mindlessly buy drinks once you consciously start keeping track of it.
(Here on the About.com College Life blog, every Thursday is "Thrifty Thursday." I'll post a tip each week about how to save money while you're in school. It might be something big; it might be something small. But given how important each nickel is, each little tip adds up, right?)
