Buying Books for School

I'll let you in on a little secret.

In college I ended up making a profit off of my books.

I believe in buying used books for my classes, even if they are one edition old. When possible I also check out my books from the library (either the school library or public libraries). When I finish using my books I sell them (unless I loved the book).

My alma mater had a book sale at the end of each semester and any book that did not sell (and was not picked up by the student selling it) was sold for $1. I would purchase many of these books and sell them online for their used value.

Be creative and you won't need to spend cash on books either.
