No Friday Classes
Maybe this isn’t a hack, but it’s just a fucking smart thing to do. Thursday night begins everyone’s weekend, but if you want to guarantee that you’re never going to have to stay in and study or do homework on a Thursday, then get it together and make sure you have no classes on Fridays. Your weekend becomes three full days, you have no responsibilities to worry about on Thursday nights, and you’ll end up spending way more money at bars than you should, but it’s okay because you can just sleep through any hungover anxiety that it will cause. You know… because you won’t have class.
Free Textbooks Online
If you have to get a textbook for any one of your classes, I can guarantee you with 99% certainty that you can get it online for zero dollars. All you have to do is take a quick trip over to reddit and look through the free textbook websites people on there give you. It might take a few tries before you actually end up finding one that works, but it will be worth it to not have to spend $150 on something that should be given to you by the school anyway.
Do with this what you will, but there are a few different ways to get food as a college student either without having to pay too much or it being completely free. First up is the rewards section of the McDonald’s app. They are giving food away. Go in, and you can get a free Big Mac if you buy a $1 large coke. It’s very easy. The next move is a bit more criminal, but it’s no more criminal than the prices that Chipotle charges. If you do a mobile order, you can go into the chat with Pepper, and say that they fucked your order up. They’ll end up refunding you for your Chipotle order and you still get to keep the rewards points. It’s kind of scummy, I know, but you’ll forget about it the second you bite into that free burrito.
If you look in your college’s psychology department, they usually have tests/surveys that they’re doing that they pay people to participate in. You go for an hour or two and make a decent amount of money for having to do absolutely nothing.
