The Question Club
I just got $225 of my $2500 Pell Grant so I can buy textbooks (I get the rest later - part of my tuition is being covered by the State, who is late to paying my school, so they hold my Pell until my state aid comes in), and I also have $400 coming in from taxes within the next couple weeks. I need money to buy groceries and a few minor school supplies. My next semester starts on February 28th, and usually, the professors give you time to buy the books. I'm positive my tax money will be coming in either right as school starts or a week after that. |
1) use the $225 I have now for living expenses and cover my textbooks with my taxes therefore living more comfortably?
2) suck it up, live on ramen, buy my textbooks as soon as I find out what they are with the money I just got, and use my tax money for living expenses after that?
DK/DC: What time did you go to sleep last night?
I went to bed at 1am and woke up at 6am.
ETA: Where do you buy inexpensive, but sturdy bags? I asked this last semester, but I didn't end up getting a bag, just using my big purse. I want a nice big tote for school. I'm thinking Vera Bradley, but I want to sit on a few options.
