Its about that time of the year when my bank account starts looking like a deserted island with no hope. Back to school shopping always costs wayyy to much. I mean come on we’re broke students. This year, I need to buy more than the previous year.
1. A Backpack
I have not invested in a backpack for almost 3 years now. I bought a Swiss backpack when I was a senior in high school and have used that backpack for both my freshman and sophomore years of college. That backpack, although it contains many holes and crumbs, has served me quite well. So its about time to buy a new and STYLISH one. I’m thinking of buying the backpack below from amazon. It looks both stylish and functional. This backpack will cost me approximately $40.
THE BIGGEST RIP-OFFS IN THE WORLD. I MEAN THEY ARE UNNECESSARILY EXPENSIVE. I can seriously count on my fingers the things that I spent over $200 on. For this semester, I need a biochem and psychology textbook. Thanks to a youtube video that recommended using slugbooks to buy textbooks, I know exactly where I’m going to purchase my books. Even with great deals my books will cost approximately $300.
3. MCAT Prep Books
What more do I need to say? I estimate that the cost will range from $100-300 but I have yet to decide which books to use. I am really sucky at the biological sciences and verbal so if anyone has any suggestions for books to use, I would really appreciate it. For verbal, I’m considering using EK’s 101 verbal passages. Any suggestions?
4. Other school stuff
This consists of things such as pens, notebooks, pencil case, highlighters, and post it notes. Nothing super extensive but just the basics. This will probably cost me around $50.
Oh well! They say you can’t put a price on education right?
