A Golden Advice
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity, it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high. Look it squarely in the eye, and say, “I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.

Students save money
Since everyone is concerned about finding ways to save money in order to keep up with the rising prices. Students are one of the most who might be concerned about finding new ways to save money.
I looked around and here are a few tips that can help you, with your saving quest.
Giving up bad habits, many students often smoke, drink or maybe have the habit of buying a hot drink to help them wake up in the morning. Try and cut those or at least reduce them and believe me you will be surprised how much money you will save.
Instead, try and prepare you coffee/tea before you leave your flat. Smoking is not only harmful for your health but also expensive. If you find quitting to smoke is hard at the minute try to put a limit on how many cigarettes you smoke per day. Drinking is also harmful for your health if its is done daily, try and buy a drink when out with friends and a special occasions!
Credit card, avoid issuing credit cards that you don;t need to pay for things.
Instead, only buy things when you have the actual money in your account and not be tempted to pay through "buy now and pay later credit cards". If you follow this simple rule, you’ll soon realise how much money you are saving and only buying things that you actually need.
A bargain, shopping is an old favourite of students. Buying clothes that you don’t real need or going to wear a couple of times is not a thing a student should even think about.
Instead, go out hunting for items on sale. There are many beautiful pieces of clothing that you can find and get at a really cheap price.
Re use, if you can and do find books, clothes or anything else that can be useful for you that are used but in good condition there is no harm in taking it from someone who does not need it anymore.
Going out to the cinema and for a drink afterwards is expensive.
Instead, you can try to go the cinema at times where the tickets are a little bit cheaper, and hav ethe same amount of fun.
Renting movies is also another expensive sort of entertainment, especially for students who like to watch weekely an old movie at night.
Instead, you could try and borrow DVDs from the library. They usually keep some decent movies and many are not too out of date.
Those are just a few ways that you can try out and see what they can save you!! Of course there are many other things you can try and cut. But it will only take your will to actually try and stop yourself from falling into Expensive habits when you cannot afford it!
