Last Minute Christmas Ideas

In case you decided to wait until 3 days before Christmas to buy presents..and malls filled with thousands of people scare you. Check out daily deal sites like Groupon, Teambuy, Wagjag etc. Buy the deal, print it off and put it in a Christmas card, sounds cheap and easy to me.

Also signing up is super easy, you can usually connect your Facebook account.
Happy buying

Saving money on...Beer

Nothing says Christmas break like hanging out with the family, sitting in front of the TV or sharing a (few?) drinks with friends.
So check this site out, and see what's on sale this week at your local beer store. Since we get ripped off in Ontario no matter what, might as well save a bit when you buy your beer.

Cheap Students

Simply put, students don't have much money to spend, and I am no exception to that. Through my experiences as a Canadian university student, I hope to create something that provides a little help on how to get more from your money while at university.

Look forward to posts that cover a wide variety of ways to save, from housing to textbooks to saving money at the bar to budgeting.
