Textbook Hack: Save Money to Put Towards Traveling

No money for travels because of educational expenses?

Well, one of the life hacks I've used to save me some money over time is buying the older editions of textbooks from Amazon. Look, I know the professors scare you when they say it has to be the newest edition - which can often be close to a $100 more expensive than the previous edition! But let me tell you from experience, the information BARELY CHANGES. Seriously. I mean unless you're going into a field where new laws are frequently being passed or technology is constantly becoming outdated, you should be safe with purchasing the older editions. I've even found textbooks for $.01 off of Amazon! Yeah, a frickin PENNY (rare, but it can happen)!! Anyways, I've successfully passed all classes where I've purchased older editions and haven't had any problems. Don't let the professors scare you because often time there's a financial incentive for them if they promote/require the newest textbook.

Beat the system and put that extra cash towards your dream trip!
