Your home is your haven, and from the moment you moved in, you’ll probably have been planning ways to improve it. You’ll want it to be a place where you can kick back and relax at the end of the day, surrounded by pleasing décor and a vibe that suits your personality. It needs to provide the necessary space, storage, and fittings that you require, whilst remaining aesthetically attractive and individual. Yet savvy homeowners know that it’s not all about taking your personal preferences into consideration. Although some people may stay in their first home for the rest of their…

The fact that you have a limited student’s budget which could never realistically afford you one of those modern houses you dream of shouldn’t stop you from dreaming about modern living though. With some creative interior decorating, bargain-hunting and arrangement hacks, you can enjoy living in a contemporary-styled apartment even on your student’s budget. The Building is Only Part of the Equation You’re likely renting if you’re still a student living on a student’s budget, but if you’re staying in your own private apartment as opposed to the university’s residences, no matter what architectural style the building is in, you…

The life of a student is all about focussing all your resources, efforts and attentions on one goal, which is studying towards getting whatever qualification you’re chasing. Pretty much every other area of your life suffers, despite it being constantly preached that you need to strike some sort of balance.One of these areas in life which suffers the most is your finances, unless you’re one of those rare breeds of rich students. So in your efforts to save as much money as you can on what is probably an already very meagre student’s budget, one of the avenues through which…

Being forced to live on a student’s budget has its upsides (believe it or not), in that it provides a physical lesson in the real value of money. You learn all manner of ways through which to stretch every last pound and squeeze every bit of value out of every situation you can.The savings as a result come in a number of different forms, from catching the free bus to and from campus which only operates at certain hours of the day, right up to walking a couple of blocks just so that you can buy your supplies from a…

We’re all very aware of the fact that buying in bulk comes with mega savings, yet we seem to be overlooking this practice as a really practical way to save money. If you’re a budding penny-pinching student who really wants to be savvier with your money, your varsity days present you with the perfect opportunity to do so by running a bulk-buying and savings club. You’ll be surprised at how many people are willing to jump on board, with all they really needed having been a legitimate and formalised platform over which to participate. Formalise Your Operation Student bodies, student…

When students think about taking our minds off of the books for a bit to refresh the mind and enjoy a bit of entertainment, what mostly comes to mind is a hectic night out. You only have to walk across the street from campus to realise just how expensive a night out can be however, with bars, clubs and restaurants that are open all hours of the day taking full advantage of the urgent manner in which students generally want to go about their entertainment. Of all the ways through which a meagre student’s budget can come under threat however,…

It’s already taking shape nicely as far around the world as Kenya, where devices are slowly taking over traditional educational media such as textbooks. Laptops and even tablet PCs allow for learners and students to have a little bit more of a convenient way of carrying around their learning tools since something like an iPad can substitute all the textbooks and writing materials which the schooling system has otherwise become accustomed to. For some reason however, beyond the technology used in laboratories, computer centres, student portals and libraries, at the tertiary education level there still seems to be a preference…

I’d love for you to take a moment to think about something I’m about to demonstrate, although it’s merely a theory at this stage. For as long as we can all remember, the lottery has been around as a way through which one in a about a million people can become extremely wealthy overnight, but it’s also something which has created a whole lot of jobs and helped some people who could really do with some financial aid (charity). So the lotto is an institution which just keeps on growing and thriving, with all manner of new records in winnings…
