Stick to a Strict Food Budget

If you’re getting rid of your student meal plan and want to start making your own food, it’s important to create a strict food budget and stick with it. Limit going out to eat as much as you can, as the cost of one meal at a restaurant can easily be the same cost as multiple meals that you make yourself at home. Apps like Pocketsmith are great ways to keep tabs on your monthly budget in college, giving you free tools and resources to manage your money effectively.
