How students can streamline transient lifestyles and save money

studentSchooldays are not always the best days of your life. It can be a bit like marmite – some of us will look back contentedly chuckling over gentle memories of a world long gone. For others, school years are a time of trauma and any memories are best forgotten. A lot of this may be down to the fact that we have no choice as to whether we go to school or not.  On the other hand, our colleges and universities are full of young people who had a choice and decided to continue with their education -they have control over their futures, and this can be an exciting time. Student life tends to be a be a time when we first taste real freedom, enjoy make decisions for ourselves and enjoy a more bohemian and more casual lifestyle.

However, this is a time when so many skills have to be learnt. The student needs to learn very quickly how to live on a budget, how to deal with the ups and downs of living away from home, deciding when to work and when to play, making new friends and looking after a new home – whatever that property may be.

With all of that, the life of a student can be quite transient. Do you go home at the holidays (of which there will be many in a traditional term year) – or do you stay near campus? One of the factors which may determine whether you travel or not is the fact that you now have valuable and utility possessions at either end of your journey. The idea of leaving your valuables and useful possessions behind you may prevent you making that trip. But there is another option which may just make things a great deal easier for you.
