It's always good to make good habits early. They will definitely help you in the long run.
You should always keep a track of your budget. Using tools like Excel, budgeting applications, or even pen and paper, you can start saving some money. Teaching juniors is a good way to earn money.
Not many investments you can do due to legal restrictions but you can still save cash.

Renting is always better than buying?

Surely someone gotta own whats rented?

Limit your social life to the extent where you enjoy with your friends but not spend too much time and money. Borrow books instead of buying. Attend events with free food. Become very aware of the free stuff that your school offers and take full advantage of it. Cook your own food, and brew your own coffee. And look for ways to have fun that don’t involve buying drinks from a coffee shops. Drinks are great, but $7 a pint is a great way to go broke super quick.

As a student, things that cost the most will be course books. If you can rent the book to study a certain topic for a week to pass your exams, you can save a lot of money. That's just personal opinion coming from a college graduate. College books are very expensive.

Exactly my thoughts. As a student, I have always found myself in shortage of funds. These small steps just help to reduce the tension in the monthly budget.

Ah right, for me a laptop cost more. Course books came free with the course.
