Easy Ways To Fatten Your Wallet

Everyone wants more money, so give yourself some. We are our own worst enemies when it comes to saving money. Two dollars here, three dollars there; it all adds up at the end of the year and you would be surprised to see how much money you waste.

Sure, I still end up spending a ton of money buying my books and coming up with a deficit no matter how much money I get by selling them, but at least I get a little cash back.

But what if there was a way to avoid the whole spending-way-too-much-money-for-books-I-plan-on-only-using-for-a-semester-anyway thing? What if I could rent my textbooks for next semester? Well, actually, I can.
