The third girl sitting a few feet away on the cold cement step leans over to ignore the hunger pain shooting through her stomach. She didn't have any money for lunch since her phone bill for the month was a little bigger then expected. Now, she has to deal with the consequence until payday. It's not that the two girls with a lunch have any more money then the other. In fact, if their incomes were all compared, they would come to about even. The thing that separates the three is that two of them know how to live on a "student budget."

Living efficiently on a student budget starts with knowing the town.

I found that getting over the fear of living in a new place is the first and most important step in living efficiently on a student budget. After this fear is mastered, here are eight tips on how to eat cheaply.
