As a student myself, I get really happy whenever i land on a coupon and get some cash backs. its really a good loop hole when ur broke and you need to buy sh.ts like textbooks and clothes. I haven't tried the dorm-related deals but I think i'll need it soon."

    "Google docs is one of the best writing websites for college students honestly. My thesis partner and me used to always set up a date and time just to write. But now that we've discovered that this exists and we can work at the same time even though were not at the same place, our lives LITERALLY changed. Its so convenient and it saved us a ton of money!
