The Cost of Textbooks Alone Can Put You In Debt!

June 14, 2017

Studies say that the average student spends over $1,200 a year on textbooks! A single textbook can easily cost $300 (or more)! Well, I refuse to pay that. As a matter of fact, I spent less than the average cost of ONE textbook on ALL of his books for my son's entire college career. With so many great resources available to you, don't ever pay more than you have to. Instead use that money for something fun...like pizza!

 

Below is a list of various places you can check to get the very best price for the book you need:

 

First check the library! (It's free!!)

See if you can borrow a book

Try used bookstores or booksales

Craig's list or EBay

Book swaps or Book rentals

Amazon
