Hello all you students out there!! I know that we were just in that phase in our lives and there is one thing that you cannot get around: textbooks!! They can be spendy but there are ways to lessen the cost.
Have you ever rented one? My husband did this and had an awesome experience. Renting books is easy and fast! In case you haven't heard of this before, here are some reasons you might want to rent instead of buy:
Some perks are:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the text
-flexible renting periods
I love that Campus Book Rentals even donates to Operation Smile with each textbook rented. What a great way to support a good cause while you get your textbooks too!
Good luck with your schooling! I am SO glad we are done with that stage of life!!
We are moving into a house in about 2 weeks. I cannot wait. After being in apartments and other small living spaces for the last 4 1/2+ years while my hubby went to school, I am ready for some space! I am also ready to decorate!! I have SO many ideas whirling in my head and hope to share some with you...and maybe get some ideas from you too!!
But one thing that is fun is we just got a new couch. I made sure to go with a neutral color (I wanted light tan but with 3 small kiddos my sanity said NO!). One thing I can't wait to do with a neutral couch is to swap out pillows. I already have a TON in mind to get. I love this deal on Very Jane today too....helps me change up my room for CHEAP!!
Which one is your favorite?? I can't really decide. I love all the color combos!!

I am just in love with pillow covers right now! What a fun way to change the ENTIRE look of your room for VERY cheap!! I found this cute brand new shop on etsy: Modest Pillows.
