One of the most difficult things about graduate school is learning to survive financially. I feel like I spend hours poring over our budget, trying to squeeze every last dime (or ten pence!) out of the boundaries we’ve set for ourselves. I know those financial boundaries are good for the long term, even though they seem utterly painful right now.
I know we all have different systems and processes for managing our money, but I thought I’d share some financial websites I frequent for tips on saving money, budgeting, and getting out of debt. These have been my go-to websites while navigating the financial perils of graduate school. I hope they help you as much as they have helped us!
