Spend Your Money On Everything But…

It’s the start of the spring semester, and after three months away in Maynooth, I feel eager to settle back in to this beautiful Chestnut Hill campus.



One of the most important ways for me to make the transition smoothly is to feel like I have all my school supplies as soon as possible. Usually, I take the route of determining  which books I need about a week after classes, as certain professors always advise purchasing certain texts over others once the syllabi have been passed out.

Although I know textbooks are a necessary expense, there are several items I would rather spend my money on during my junior year at Boston College than $200+ textbooks. Here’s my list of top five things I would rather buy instead.

  1. Hair Blowout from Dry Bar
  2. American Hustle Movie Tickets
  3. Anything & Everything from J.Crew’s Valentine’s Day Shop
  4. Shake Shack for Family Dinner
  5. Multiple Lululemon Headbands in Bright Colors


Don’t those seem like better things to pay for? If you are looking to get prepared for school but aren’t willing to spend too much money for unused or unnecessary books, check out Campus Book Rentals and the reasons why renting is beneficial for you as a student.
