7- Leave the private gyms. Instead, choose the gyms in many universities’ campuses. Generally, the service is free or for a very reasonable fee.
8- Spend more time at home. Organize house parties, movie nights rather than meeting your friends outside all the time. Attend free events and spring festivals of universities.
9- Instead of buying the books you will need for a short time, try to find them in libraries or use their photocopies.
10- One of the ways to save money for students is to sell your old textbooks. Remember that there are callers like you.
11. Work part-time jobs. In this way, you can meet many of your expenses. Many students contribute to their budgets by working in restaurants and cargo companies during the remaining time of the school.
12- Try to get a scholarship. Many organizations support students in this regard.
13- Make your own coffee. It will save you 10 lira per day.
14- Share your room. If you are staying alone at home, sharing your home with a schoolmate will reduce your expenses in half.
