The College Budget Pt.1

Going to college can be remembered as the best years of our lives, accompanied by memories of just trying to hang on to the little money we have. Attending classes, and having adequate time for studying leaves little time for work. So keeping yourself on a budget can by far seem the hardest part. Especially with all the unexpected needs that arise when living on your own. So Family Thrift Center has put some things together to show college students some ideas to keep them from spending an unnecessary amount of money. Because, seeing a product for a fraction of the price you just paid for is a horrible feeling when we are counting every penny.

If you are just starting college or finally moving out of the dorm, chances are you are running short on kitchen-ware. Family Thrift Centers carry all types of kitchen items that are perfectly fine. Skillets, pots, pans can always be found at our locations and it doesn’t stop with only cooking utensils. We have glass and plastic plates, bowls and cups. All of these at a price you could never find at a retail store!

Finals are here! Need a bigger screen for those long projects that your laptop just doesn’t seem to be cutting? We carry all types of monitors that you can connect to make those study sessions easier on the eyes and neck. And when the tough get going, make coffee! We always have a wide selection of coffee makers and you can even find espresso machines for those high octane moments. Never let finals get ahead of you again!

These are just a few examples of how a college student can save money for the things that matter most. From getting a new place and needing to stock the cabinets to the time when every minute counts to ensure that you have the highest grades possible, Family Thrift Center has you covered. Keep the times we cherish as enjoyable as possible!
