Hello Friends!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
We have been so dry in Ohio and we finally got some rain...which means it is a little bit cooler.
I threw open my windows and am determined to get some fresh air in this house!
I started cleaning out my office.
This is by no means a fun job.
 I tend to let it get crazy but I'm getting ready to go back to work/school for the year so I have to get my act together.

I try to keep you guys posted on the cool stuff I find and do myself.
I recently heard about a website called Campusbookrentals.com.
My girlfriend who is in nursing school told me about how she went to get one of her nursing books and it was 250 dollars and so she started shopping around and found this website.
Well anyway the site lets you rent your text books from them for a fraction of the cost.
It can be anywhere from 40-90% discounted!?!?
I cant even tell you how much of a steal that is. I checked it out myself and one of my graphic design books was literally 50% off!! (Also this is a really great book if your interested in the history of GD).

They ship it to you for free & return for free!
They let you highlight in the books as needed.
If you get a book that's not in good condition they will return it and give you a different copy free!
CRAY CRAY!
They are also flexible as to how long you have the book so you can rent for a quarter, semester or longer.
They will also give you 30 days to make a return if you drop a class. 

The best part (besides the savings) is they also donate to Operation Smile. They whole goal of operation smile to help children with clef lip.
You can even follow the blog and see the daily progress of the organization.

 This is Daisy before 

This is Daisy after :)

They are doing really great work helping kids to have a more full life.
So anyway that was my inside scoop this week on cheap books.

Hope you all have a great Saturday.
If you have tips for me on savings leave me some comments ;)
