Campusbookrentals is the way to go for us

Time is going by too quickly for me. In less than two years I will have a child in college. Yes you read that right she will be in college. I would be lying if I said I am not worried about the costs that comes with a child going to college. In case you are new to my blog, I am a mother of 6 kids so that means I have to be prepared to send 6 kids to college and preparations start early around here. You better believe I am already looking for ways to be able to afford college for her and the college books she will need.

One of the ways my daughter and I can save money is by using campusbookrentals My daughter can rent the books she needs rather than spend tons of money each semester buying the books she will need. Just by renting the books rather than buying them my daughter can save anywhere from 40-90 percent off bookstore prices. If you have gone to college you know that a college book can cost anywhere from 60.00 to 200.00 or more and that’s putting it mildly. I didn’t have the option of being able to rent books when I took a couple of courses in college. I had to either buy new books at retail price or hope and pray that I could find the books I needed in the used college books section. If I was lucky enough to beat out the other students looking for a deal too, I had to hope and pray that the books were within my budget.

Luckily for my daughter she can use the Rentback program if she does end up buying some of her college books. If we have to pay retail price for some books we can at least get some of the money back by having other students rent out the books. My daughter could always sell back the books to campusbookrentals but if she uses their new rentback program she can make 2-4 times more money that way. I had my daughter check out this video and she was beyond excited to try it out when the time comes. She was also excited to go through a website like this one because campusbookrentals donates to operation smile with every book rented. My daughter is big on giving back to the community and will gladly help out or participate and go through any company that is willing to pay it forward to other communities or charities or programs. I am so glad to have raised such a good kid who doesn’t mind finding ways to help out other people or doing things that save us money.
