Living on a college budget can be pretty stressful. Having to pay for food, toothpaste, socks and every other lifestyle need can burn a hole in your pocket. Here are some tips on how to have fun this semester at Snow but also have enough money to take that cute friend out on a date.

Have a scary movie marathon. Ask around and collect as many horror movies as you can and then meet up at someones dorm. Start with Incidious and end the night the night with The Conjuring. It’s a perfect way to find phobias in others that even they were too stubborn to admit. Watching movies in general is a great way to relax with your friends. Mason Perry, a freshman here at Snow, said, “I honestly love doing musical marathons. They make your day so much better.”

Instead of going out to see a movie with your friends, go out and hike the “S.” It’s about to get cold really quick and this is the perfect time to be outside hiking. Grab a bunch of neighbors, send out a mass text, and tell everyone to meet up the canyon. Bring some food and a free afternoon activity is set.

Pay attention to the ads at both Kent’s and Walmart. Both stores have weekly sales that are perfect for buying in bulk. If Wheat Thins are on sale at Kent’s for 2/$5, it’s time to stock up on those bad boys and start a mini food storage. Also, avoid buying name brand and choose the cheaper, less known company. I guarantee it will still taste descent and the extra money will be well worth it.
